Really? No sh*t, Joe. We coulda told you that. Sometimes I wonder if this guy has all his marbles, or if he just doesn’t have any sort of filter when he’s running off at the mouth. The article says one of his staffers tried to shut him up before he admitted that the administration’s gun-grab tactics are basically useless against gun crime, but when Joe wants to say something, I guess he’s just going to say it. The handlers can clean up afterwards – and of course the lapdog media will be there to cover for him.
On the uselessness of the proposed laws: it’s not really about crimes or the children, or anything like that. It’s about our liberal overlords wanting to exercise control over us.
Vice President Joe Biden conceded on Thursday that gun regulations aren’t going to end every murder or eliminate the possibility of another mass shooting, but argued changes are needed to save lives.
“Nothing we’re going to do is going to fundamentally alter or eliminate the possibility of another mass shooting or guarantee that we will bring gun deaths down to a thousand a year from what we’re at now,” Biden told reporters after meeting with Senate Democrats in the Capitol. “But there are things that we can do demonstrably can do that have virtually zero impact on your Second Amendment right to own a weapon for both self defense and recreation that can save some lives.”
As a staffer tried unsuccessfully to cut Biden off repeatedly, the vice president argued to reporters that none of the proposals would infringe on constitutional rights.
“This is not a difficult equation, if I can prove that there is no Constitutional impact on your right to bear arms and the action I’m suggesting can in fact demonstrably show some people could be saved then this seems to be a no-brainer to me,” Biden said.
Biden said he made the case to fellow Democrats that now is the time to act on guns.
“The point I was making was, you know, the visual image of those 20 innocent children being riddled with bullets has absolutely not only traumatized the nation, but it has caused, it’s like the straw that broke the camel’s backs,” Biden said.
