Joe Biden led the gun task force, and it would be difficult to find a more inappropriate person to do it. I say this as someone who likes Joe Biden personally. I would love to join a neighborhood baseball league with him, or invite him to my 4th of July cookout.
However, I do not want him to lead my garage sale, let alone an anti-gun task force.
Most of his political inclinations sound like satire, rather than serious opinions. Should a man like Joe Biden, who helped to pass the traitorous NDAA, be allowed anywhere near our Second Amendment rights? The answer can only be a resounding NO.
There is also the near-complete absence of credibility on the part of the Vice President. For one, he doesn’t own a gun. Second, the National Rifle Association (NRA) gave him a rating of “F”, in terms of friendliness to gun owners and gun rights.
Finally, his other political goals, such as his stated desire to give Social Security to illegal immigrants create a strong case that Biden is certifiably deranged. (For anyone needing further proof of this last point, please direct your attention to the Vice Presidential debate last October, which Biden spent in fits of maniacal giggling.) As a matter of fact, the only thing that salvages Biden’s reputation at all is what the media would call his “gaffes”, or bald truths.
The same day Obama issued 23 new edicts down to the American people, Biden was at the White House. He claimed that if the federal government just had more power, gun violence would be curbed. (Now that would have been a thoroughly appropriate time for a laugh.)
However absurd, it was not out of character. I admit that at the time I thought Biden believed what he was saying was true, even if no one else did.
But of course, he knew better. In this clip, he admits gun control won’t protect anybody nor will it stop mass shootings. What he says in the video is true. New laws will deter no one from committing these horrific mass shootings. Turns out, killing people is already against the law, and people like Seung-Hui Cho (the Virginia Tech shooter) did it anyway. The only people likely to be impacted by the new regulations suggested by Joe Biden and his task force are the people who would never dream of committing a mass shooting anyway.
From the moment it was announced Joe Biden would lead a phony task force on guns, everyone knew exactly what his “findings” would be. There was one painful disappointment when I watched the video and realized that even Joe Biden didn’t believe what he was saying about guns. That means everything he said about guns were just regular lies.
