Promoting stricter gun control legislation on Tuesday, Vice President Joe Biden criticized the National Rifle Association for peddling “misinformation” and mocked gun rights supporters, labeling them the “black helicopter crowd.”
“Kinda scary man, the black helicopter crowd is really upset,” Biden said, later claiming that there would be no federal registry for background checks giving the government the ability to keep records on gun owners.
“No way that Uncle Sam can go find out whether you own a gun because we’re about to really take away all your rights and you’re not going to be able to defend yourself and we’re going to swoop down with Special Forces folks and gather up every gun in America,” Biden mocked. “It’s bizarre. But that’s what’s being sold out there.”
Biden went on to say new gun control laws would only “add to the existing system” not require any additional information from gun owners.
