    VP Joe at us again ..Now WE like our Guns because ........

    VP Joe Biden this morning said that the “cultural norm” about gun ownership has changed, arguing that many people buy guns, not for protection or hunting, but because “it’s like driving a Ferrari.”

    “It used to be we were dealing almost exclusively with hunters,” Biden said “There’s a whole new sort of group of individuals now who, I don’t know what the numbers are, that never hunt at all 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. You know, it’s like driving a Ferrari,” he said, raising his arms as if shooting a gun.

    As Congress prepares to vote today on whether to proceed to debate a gun control bill, Biden said the issue is one where the people have been “far ahead” of the politicians.

    “I mean so far ahead,” he said of public support for gun control proposals, including expanded background checks. “You saw it in immigration, you saw it in marriage issues. You’re seeing it now, the public has moved to a different place.After Newtown Shootings, Most Back Some Gun Controls, Poll Shows

    The vice president spoke passionately about the need to continue to push for a ban on assault-style weapons and high-capacity magazine clips, saying “certain weapons of war just don’t belong on the street.”

    He argued that smaller clips would have saved lives in the December massacre at Sandy Hook Elementary School.
    “If there had only been ten bullets in each clip, [the shooter] would have had to change the clip an additional three to five times. One of those kids would be alive. Somebody would be alive,” he said.

    “What is the inconvenience? What are we doing? What are we doing to impact on a gun owners’ right if he only has a clip with ten rounds in it instead of 30 rounds in it?” he asked.

    But I can't afford a Ferrari Joe ....but your half right my Nano feels good in my hand :) and Joe it is to protect my family and any other victim if the need arises . You see Joe we don't have the Secret Service with those fully automatic weapons, and I have instructed my wife to never fire our shotgun into the air . It's called know what you are shooting at and target discipline .

    Ok I will put it in simple terms ....what goes up must come down

    Is it really a bad thing to enjoy shooting a rifle at a rifle range?

    Right Joe Blow - if he had been made to take that 3-5 seconds to reload each time, it would have taken him an additional 9 to 25 seconds which of course the police would have gotten there in time to stop him







    NOT!

    Yes, a poor man's Ferrari. Joe knows us all too well. And it's safer than a Ferrari, too, right, Joe? Joe?

    What, my defensive needs, justification and rights have changed or are lessened because some small percentage of buyers have no other reason that "driving a 'Ferrari'" motivating their purchases?

    Were I to fail to defend against a "cultural norm" who attacks/murders me, is my headstone engraving to that effect supposed to be some sort of consolation?

    Obama couldn't have chosen a better person to lead his anti-gun initiative, that being Joe Biden, a complete idiot.

    Joe dropped one too many blotters in college evidently. Where does he dream things up in his Bill OReilly'ish world of make believe?

    My stance on guns, use of guns and the constitution is identical to my father, grand and great grandfathers, uncles and so on. Not one small thing has changed. In fact more people today are going back to those pure beliefs and understanding of our rights. Liberals need to stop telling people they clearly don't understand, what they are thinking.

    Joe, freedom is owning what I want to own and not having to explain it, you numb nutted D-bag.

    I don't hunt. Don't ever care to. But I shoot 8000 rounds per year and carry all the time. I own different guns because I like them, enjoy them, and use them. The right shall not be infringed regardless of how many, what lawful purpose or reason. Period.

    Now that I know owning and shooting guns is like driving a Ferrari, I am more inclined to buy one... (yeah right)... what kind of comparison is that anyway? Oh yeah, I can get into a Ferrari and use it for defense of my family and home...

    BTW, that study that said over 90% of the gun owners want gun registration was brought to us by a gun group that has no affiliation with any NRA or other gun clubs. It is made up of liberals and funded by the left. Those numbers were based on polling 500 of those members...
