In which Biden demonstrates again he doesn't know what he's talking about

and much of the media is in the tank for him.
...from the very beginning, I used to teach the Second Amendment in law school, from the very beginning, there were limitations. You couldn’t own a cannon. You couldn’t — you could own a rifle or a gun, but there were certain things you couldn’t do. They weren’t weapons of war.
Cannon: false.  Weapons of war: false.  Etc.  Again.  

I think my favorite response is from one of the people involved in the Constitution, Tench Coxe:
Who are the militia? Are they not ourselves? Is it feared, then, that we shall turn our arms each man against his own bosom. Congress have no power to disarm the militia. Their swords, and every other terrible implement of the soldier, are the birthright of an American… The unlimited power of the sword is not in the hands of either the federal or state governments, but, where I trust in God it will ever remain, in the hands of the people.

The problem isn't so much that he says it, but that nobody challenges him on it.
And did he teach Constitutional Law before he was a truck driver or after he was at the Naval Academy?

No, I think it was right after he beat up Corn Pop for that job at the lumbermill.
