Biden on guns: 'We're going to go around the country.'

snipe 2013/01/18 00:20:30
Read the last sentence carefully, people, cause this is what it's really all about...our handguns!


“We’re going to take this fight to the halls of Congress, Biden said. “We’re going to take it beyond that. We’re going to take it to the American people. We’re going to go around the country making our case and we’re going to let the voices, the voices of the American people be heard.”

Biden made it clear that requiring universal background checks for all new gun purchases is the most important element of the White House gun control platform – an opinion shared by the leading gun control advocacy organizations.

“Why would a criminal buy a gun at a store where he’s required to buy a gun to do a background check or at a gun show from a licensed dealer where he’s required to go through a background check when he can buy a gun from the guy at the next exit over who sometimes has a sign above saying ‘No background check required’?”

While the groups are also pushing for an assault weapons ban, it is acknowledged to be the least important and most difficult element of Obama’s proposals to pass Congress. Biden himself implied that an assault weapons ban pales in importance to even a prohibition on high-capacity ammunition magazines.

“The weapon of choice in vast majority of people who are killed is a handgun,” Biden said. “But you can put an awful lot of rounds in a Glock and a lot of other handguns.”

    OBAMA AND THE LIBERALS GUN CONTROL WOULD HAVE KILLED THIS FAMILY!


    DON'T EVEN EVER EVER EXPECT THE POLICE TO PROTECT YOU AND YOUR FAMILY
    ITS THE LAW THAT POLICE ARE NOT HERE TO PROTECT AND SERVE THE INDIVIDUAL ! THE SUPREME COURT SAYS SO.

    THE DANGEROUS MISTAKE OF THE LEFT!
    NO MATTER WHAT RHETORIC THE LEFT COMES OUT WITH, THEY SPIN THE TRUTH TO GAIN CONTROL OVER GOOD HONEST PEOPLE!
    The government can't place a personal police man on every man woman and child in the USA!.. We as Citizens are tasked and responsible for our families and our own personal safety. The US Supreme court has issued the order that the police are not responsible for individual protection of citizens and the citizens of the USA are ordered to not expect police personal protection and to protect themselves.
    "It is well-settled fact of American law that the police have no legal duty to protect any
    individual citizen from crime, even if the citizen has received death threats and the police have negligently failed to provide protection."

    BEST FRIEND OF HER DECEASED MINOR CHILDREN, REBECCA GONZALES, KATHERYN GONZALES, AND LESLIE GONZALES On June 27, in the case of Castle Rock v.Gonzales, the Supreme Court found that Jessica Gonzales did not have a
    constitutional right to individual police protection even in the presence of a restraining order. Mrs. Gonzales' husband with a track record of violence, stabbing Mrs. Gonzales to death, Mrs. Gonzales' family could not get the Supreme Court to change their unanimous
    decision for one's individual protection. YOU ARE ON YOUR OWN FOLKS AND

    Why is he going after the NRA? Because it is basicly a white membership. Very few black men hunt, and the NRA is mainly people who hunt. Not racist, just true.

    First off, polls are very inaccurate ways to gauge public opinion. Banning assault weapons, for example, sound logical on the surface to most Americans simply because of the name "assault weapon". But what is the definition of an assault weapon? Most couldn't tell you, and neither can most of the law makers who would vote to ban them.

    One of the guns I built (legally) in my garage. 5.56 pistol.

    Oh, and as I'm an iraq/afghanistan vet, and most cops barely even get to go to the shooting range - Like I said.

    Joe Biden is a douchebag most definitely, and then he lied saying Obama will not mess with is Berettas. Joe Biden is what everyone hates about politicians and put together into one person.
