When politicians are openly saying ‘if the government comes knocking down your door, there is nothing you can do about it’, your government is too big, and definitely too authoritarian.
Joe Biden declared at a New Hampshire campaign event: “The fact is, if you’re going to take on the government you need an F-15 with Hellfire Missiles. There is no way an AK-47 is going to take care of you.”
The audience seems to kind of awkwardly look on while the former Vice President basically said the US would or should be willing to unleash its military force on its own citizens. But then Biden uses the magic word “assault weapons” and they give him an obligatory round of applause, because ‘assault weapons bad’, even though we have no idea what assault weapons actually are.
