9. When he compared gun owners to people who drive Ferraris
“There is a whole new sort of group of individuals now who — I don’t know what the numbers are — that never hunt at all,” Biden said. “But they own guns for one of two reasons, self-protection or they just like the feel of that AR-15 at the range. They like the way it feels.”
