Union millwright Jerry Wayne served as the voice of Second Amendment advocates earlier this week when he questioned Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden over the former vice president's expressed plans to confiscate firearms from Americans if he makes it to the White House.
During the exchange at an auto plant, Biden threatened Wayne, telling him he was going to "slap" him and told Wayne he was "full of sh*t," while arguing to the union man that he had no right to own an "AR-14" ( presumably referring to the AR-15).
The next day, Wayne bought a memento to mark his conversation with the former vice president: a new rifle etched with an image of Joe Biden along with the words "AR-14" and "You're full of sh*t! - Joe Biden."
What are the details?Wayne is now the star of a new ad for the National Rifle Association, wherein he shows off his new purchase, and explains the reasoning behind his confrontation with Mr. Biden.
Blaze Media's Jason Howerton posted the video on Twitter with the message, "The union worker who Joe Biden tried to intimidate and told he didn't need an 'AR-14' literally got a rifle engraved with 'AR-14' and 'Full of shit.' This man is a gosh damn LEGEND."

In the ad, Wayne says, "Joe Biden wants to take my AR-14. Let's just not tell him what it really is," before showing off his new firearm and explaining, "I got this the day after I talked with Joe. I'm sure that's not the result he was going for."
Wayne goes on to explain the reasoning behind his questioning of Biden, and the video includes Biden stating on air to CNN that he plans to take away "assault weapons." It also shows Biden promising that, if elected, he would appoint failed presidential (and failed senatorial) candidate and former Rep. Beto O'Rourke (D-Texas) to "take care of the gun problem" in America.
O'Rourke famously declared to voters during his short-lived presidential campaign, "Hell yes, we're gonna take your AR-15."
Mr. Wayne says in the ad, "I have a message for the gun-grabbing politicians: Your belligerent behavior has no place in government, and you will never — I mean never — touch our guns."
