Biden’s handlers once again gave him a script full of mistakes and he got to repeat lies talked about the Second Amendment:


And again, for any of the press in here, the press listening: This doesn’t violate anybody’s Second Amendment right.  There’s no violation of a Second Amendment right.

We talk like there’s no amendment that’s absolute.  When the amendment was passed, it didn’t say anybody can own a gun and any kind of gun and any kind of weapon.  You couldn’t buy a cannon in — when the — this — this amendment was passed.  And so, no reason why you should be able to buy certain assault weapons.  But that’s another issue.

Remarks by President Biden at a Gun Violence Prevention Task Force Meeting | The White House

Clayton Cramer dug into the Library of Congress to find ads for the sale of cannons back in 1799, 11 years after the Constitution was ratified. I also searched and got a screen capture for your viewing pleasure.

If you click on Cramer’s page, you will see that the ad is from July 1799 while the one above is from March of the same year. That seems to indicate this was not a one-off sale but a regualr offer of selling goods, in fact, that year you can find a similar ad from Simon Walker starting on January 2 (5th column, below the fold).

And he was not alone. Same paper, January 1. 1799:


And again, same paper January 3, different seller:


And again, another seller in December the same year:

And to finish the idea that cannons were absolute realm of the military, we have this other clipping of rather unfortunate news. From Rhode-Island Republican. 10 July 1802:

It is Mister Jabez Luther, a civilian and by the narration about his disposition, a true badass.

And with that, we close this sad chapter of Gun Control misinformation once again. You should bookmark this page because you will see this idiotic asseveration again in the future and will need to shut them up quickly.

  1. If the founders didn’t intend “arms” to mean anything and everything up to and including a battleship, why did they put the part about “letters of marque” in the constitution?

  2. Looks like these were ship chandlers. You know, everything you need for a boat except the hull. Located in Philadelphia, this is not at all surprising.

  3. It isn’t a mistake. It is part of the long term strategy by the United States Intelligence Community. Our betters. The Great Reset.

    It wasn’t paranoia when it actually occurs.

  4. Truth telling would be an admission against interest for the left. Ludicrous statements are aimed at the vast fields of potted plant normies whose closest contact with a weapon is a large, medium, or small screen. They are the ones who need to be infected with truth.

    1. Ironically, the Left has done more to kill gun control over the past two years than anyone else. Just look at the sales numbers.
      Who was to know that widespread rioting, defunding the police, and telling people that Covid meant no cops would show up was going to push more people into wanting to have the means to defend themselves?

  5. Would have to do a dive into the laws and regulations, but I think you can buy a cannon today.
    From the ATF:
    Generally, no. Muzzleloading cannons manufactured in or before 1898 (and replicas thereof) that are not capable of firing fixed ammunition are considered antiques and not subject to the provisions of either the Gun Control Act (GCA) or National Firearms Act (NFA).
    In other words. Not only can you purchase and own a cannon today, you do not need a NICS check to do so.

    1. Not only that, but you can apparently make your own. Some years ago there was an article online by a guy who built a cannon out of well casing with a piece of one inch plate welded to one end. When loaded with an ounce (I think) of black powder, it would send a bowling ball about a mile down-range at his local gun club.
      The only caveat in the article was “don’t try this if you’re not able to make certified structural grade welds”.

  6. The Incompetence Cascade continues, as if they have forgotten every rule of Propaganda.
    Good Propaganda is close to the truth, and confirms what people want to believe.

    Bad Propaganda is counterproductive. Telling lies that can almost instantly be disproved via Google is Bad Propaganda.

Only one rule: Don't be a dick.
