[Ed. – Yeah, not so much. He’s reiterated his biggest whopper quite a number of times too. Even the MSM have agreed that he’s wrong about it.]
After Attorney General Merrick Garland unveiled a series of gun control policies, which he dubbed a “crime prevention strategy,” President Biden offered a legal justification for the measures:
The Second Amendment, from the day it was passed, limited the type of people who could own a gun and what type of weapon you could own. You couldn’t buy a cannon. … The point is that there has always been the ability to limit — rationally limit the type of weapon that can be owned and who can own it.
It’s possible that Biden gleaned his strangely stubborn belief in the prohibition of cannons from the fraudulent book Arming America by then-Emory University Professor Michael Bellesiles, which won the Bancroft Award. … His book was later stripped of the award after scholars exposed Bellesiles as basing his anti-gun argument on forged sources.
