Former Vice President Joe Biden talks often about banning some guns that are currently legal. He recently promised to put Beto O'Rourke, an astonishing failure of a presidential candidate, in charge of gun policy in his administration. O'Rourke, when he was running for president, talked enthusiastically about confiscating currently legal guns.
"Hell yes, we're going to take your AR-15s," O'Rourke famously said.
With that established, we now go to Michigan, where Biden was campaigning to get autoworkers' support. As he presumably was attempting to convince people to vote for him, he engaged in a discussion with a voter about the aforementioned stance on gun control and told the voter he was "full of s**t."
How it happened
Biden was touring a Fiat Chrysler assembly plant that is under construction and meeting with members of an electrical workers' union.
One of those workers confronted Biden about his proposed ban on assault weapons, particularly the AR-15. Here's how it went:
"You are actively trying to end our Second Amendment right and take away our guns," the worker said.
"You're full of s**t," Biden shot back.

Biden went on about how he owns guns and how his sons hunt, which is his usual response when he's challenged on guns. He also erroneously called the AR-15 an "AR-14." When the worker correctly noted that there is documented proof of Biden's intent to take away guns, Biden dismissed it as a lie, and this exchange followed. From CBS News:
"This is not OK, alright?" the man said, to which Biden replied, "Don't tell me that, pal, or I'm going to go out and slap you in the face."
"You're working for me, man!" the worker said.
"I'm not working for you," Biden said. "Don't be such a horse's ass."
To recap, Biden told this voter who is concerned about the preservation of the Second Amendment that he's full of s**t, threatened to slap him in the face, told him not to be a horse's ass, and at one point, he referred the nonexistent "AR-14."
Not to mention, he's being untruthful the entire time:
Biden lies to this worker, and claims that he never said he would take away guns Last August, he said exactly that… https://t.co/ou7eSUWgjt— Zach Parkinson (@Zach Parkinson)1583851535.0
