The push for gun control is one of the left’s most ongoing, yet hypocritical ventures. Time and time again, Democrats claim that tightening gun control laws and complicating the process of lawful Americans exercising their Second Amendment right is what’s best. When confronted with the reality that criminals, by definition, don’t adhere to gun regulations, the left simply doubles down.
One of the worst factors of all, however, is the hypocrisy. Many of the same Democrats calling for gun control enjoy the protection of guns themselves. Former vice president turned 2020 hopeful Joe Biden is a ringing example of this dynamic.

While Biden calls for more restrictions on guns, he quite literally reaps the benefit of guns’ protection, as reported by Breitbart News. Ironically, some of the very firearms protecting the former vice president are ones he wants to ban America from accessing.
Reviewing Biden’s Newfound Secret Service Protection
After some previously close calls with protesters, Biden decided to step things up and accept Secret Service protection. As one might imagine, a security detail of this nature involves agents to be armed with guns and firearms. Some of those specific firearms entail ARs with 30-round magazines, one of many guns that Biden wants to ban Americans from accessing.
Since Biden’s time as a 2020 presidential candidate, he’s ongoingly demeaned and belittled Americans’ right to bear arms. Following out of the leftist playbook, the former vice president also makes promises to take on the NRA, gun manufacturers, and by extension, lawful gun owners.

Then, when Americans challenge Biden on his anti-gun declarations, he lashes out at them; the country witnessed this phenomenon earlier in the month when the 2020 Democrat was caught on video calling a Detroit autoworker “full of sh*t.”
“Do As I Say, Not As I Do!”
Joe Biden is not the first gun-hating, hypocritical Democrat to seek the White House and he won’t be the last.
This primary has brought out our party's best ideas, and our nation is better for it. If I'm President, I'll continue to bring the best ideas from all corners of the country and fight to make them reality. To see these plans, you can go to my website: https://t.co/8bAii5T2FF

The former vice president’s attitudes are very similar to that of Mike Bloomberg, the failed 2020 candidates whose opposition against guns served as the hallmark of his campaign. Like Biden, though, Bloomberg reaped the benefit of protection from bodyguards with guns while campaigning against Americans’ Second Amendment rights.
What do you make of Joe Biden’s hypocritical stance on guns? Should Biden be made to disarm his bodyguards since he hates guns so much? Let us know in the comments section below!
