Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden does not believe anyone “needs” to own an AR-15, one of the most common rifles in America.
According to the former vice president, those “weapons of war” should be completely outlawed and removed from “our communities.”
“No one needs an AR-15. Period. We have to get these weapons of war out of our communities,” Biden tweeted on Saturday afternoon.

No one needs an AR-15.
“No one ‘needs’ $83,000 a month for a no-show job in a foreign country either, but your son took the gig anyway,” former Secret Service agent Dan Bongino said in response.

Several others took issue with Biden telling them what he thinks they need, Twitchy reports.
“Good thing you don’t get to decide what I need. Only I get to decide that,” one user responded with a picture of several guns.

How many people were killed by rifles (of any kind) in 2018? 297
How many people were killed by knives? 1,515
Blunt objects? 443
Being punched/kicked? 672
No more knives or hammers. We should also ban hands and feet. Get them out of our communities!https://t.co/TIO0Z811fZ

Joe, sweetie, I have actually been to war. Not once did I ever carry and AR into the theatre of Combt. I am pretty sure no one else has ever.
This right here is why you will never be president

If a politician says you don't need a gun, it's time to buy a gun.

AR-15 is not a weapon of war. And even if it was, weapons of war were the original intent of the second amendment.
The second amendment ensures that the government cannot abridge the other enumerated rights. The only limited rights the government has are the ones we give it. pic.twitter.com/wSLuMACcsn
