Joe Biden, with huge lead on 2020 field, attacks Second Amendment

With his newfound polling cushion, Biden is lashing out at the inalienable right to bear arms.

Even before Joe Biden had entered the 2020 presidential race, he was the frontrunner.  That hasn’t slowed down one bit since.

For many on the left, Biden represents the centrist thanks to the glut of wildly liberal ideas being floated in the democratic field.  This, the democrats hope, will be the key to taking on Donald Trump in the 2020 election, as they hope to peel off some of the midwestern voters who helped the business mogul trounce Hillary Clinton in the last go-round.

Biden has taken a stunning lead on the field already, and increased the distance between himself and his next closest competitor by 5 points just this week:

The poll released on Wednesday found 29% of Democrats and independents said they would vote for Biden in the state nominating contests that begin next year. That is up from 24% who said so in a poll that ran in late April, days before Biden announced his bid.

Biden led the field among all major demographic groups except millennials (ages 18-37), who favored U.S. Senator Bernie Sanders of Vermont over Biden 18% to 16%.

Now, with this sizable and comfortable cushion, Biden has begun expressing himself a bit more vociferously, attacking even the sacred Second Amendment in his latest bold proclamation.

Former Vice President Joe Biden admitted that the “Second Amendment exists” but stressed during his speech in New Hampshire on Tuesday that it does not say everyone is “entitled” to own a gun.

Biden, who was taking questions at a small outdoor venue, then added, “By the way, if one of you left the keys in your car down the street, and a kid comes along and jumps in it and takes off, you could be held liable civilly for that. So if you own a gun, put a damn trigger lock on it. Put it in a case. You have an obligation.”

Several other candidates on the democratic primary ticket have taken even more extreme views on the right to bear arms, with Congressman Eric Swalwell going as far as suggesting that mandatory buybacks on “assault” rifles would be a priority for his administration.
