President Joe Biden joked that people who think they need guns to take on the US government actually need nuclear weapons.
In a speech in which he outlined his plan to combat gun violence on Wednesday, Biden said, "If you want or think you must have guns to take on the government, you need F-15s and maybe some nuclear weapons. "

Biden also said that there have always been limits to what types of guns can be legally owned: “The second amendment, from the day it was passed, restricted the types of people who could own a gun and what type of gun could not be owned by a cannon to buy."
"The point is, there has always been an opportunity to rationally limit the types of weapon one can own and who can own it."
Biden also said his government will take a "zero tolerance" approach to arms dealers who violate applicable law. The president has long been pushing for a gun control law, including a ban on assault weapons.
