Joe Biden Tells Voter on Campaign Trail He's 'Full Of Sh**' in Confrontation Over Gun Control and Second Amendment

Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden told a Detroit auto plant worker "you're full of sh*t" Tuesday in a confrontation over the Second Amendment and gun control.

Dozens of Detroit auto workers recorded a heated argument between Biden and an auto plant worker during a Michigan campaign stop Tuesday morning. The former vice president repeatedly expressed his support for the Constitution's Second Amendment, the right to bear arms, and told a throng of men wearing construction worker gear that he has never claimed he will take Americans' guns away.

"You are actively trying to infringe our Second Amendment right and take away our guns," the man says as the two stand in the middle of a swarm of hard hat-wearing workers. "You're full of sh*t," Biden responds, staring directly at him for several seconds. Biden and the man briefly went back and forth about the difference between a semi-automatic weapon, a "machine gun" and what Biden repeatedly described as an "AR-14." Biden also pushed back against the man's claims that an unidentified "viral video" he'd seen on the internet depicts him declaring opposition to gun rights.

"I support the Second Amendment. The Second Amendment, just like right now if you yell 'fire' that's not free speech," Biden says, before listing several firearms he owns including a 12-gauge shotgun. "Guess what? You're not allowed to own any weapons. I'm not taking your gun away at all."

The man appears to dismiss Biden expressing support for gun ownership rights and again claims, "You said you're going to take our guns away."

"I did not say that," Biden replied sternly. Michigan is one of six states holding presidential primary contests Tuesday. Biden is currently the Democratic frontrunner in terms of delegates over Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders, who is looking to repeat his Michigan presidential primary victory against Hillary Clinton in 2016.

Biden's campaign office did not immediately respond to Newsweek's request for comment or context regarding the confrontation Tuesday.
