    Ted Cruz Challenges Biden to Gun Control Debate

    President Obama said. "Most of the guns used to commit violence here in Mexico come from the United States... I will continue to do everything in my power to pass common-sense reforms that keep guns out of the hands of criminals and dangerous people.”

    Okay. Well, what did the President do about Eric Holder walking thousands of guns into the hands of Mexican drug cartels? Not a thing. What about after U.S. Border Patrol Agent Brian Terry was killed by one of those guns? Nothing.

    Why am I bringing this up, beyond the obvious?

    I would like to see less unactionable rhetoric from our executive leadership. President Obama has asked for a National conversation on gun control. He paraded those children from Sandy Hook around asking for this conversation. Okay sir, here is an opportunity. Will it happen? Who really doesn't know the answer to that question? Here is the more important question – why will it not happen?

    Excerpt from the above link:

    Cruz indicated that he doesn’t regard Biden as a formidable opponent, noting that Biden’s home defense advice — firing a shotgun twice into the air — “is very useful, if it so happens that you’re being attacked by a flock of geese.”

    Turn the election's in 2014 to a "2A Revolution". It will serve as a 1994 refresher not to "infringe" on our Second Amendment. We know who they are now.........SEND 'EM HOME. Our success in this will be proportional to how hard we work to make it happen.

    I would love to see a debate between Cruz and Biden! Would Biden just laugh like a demented fool like he did during the VP debate? Or, would he give some more great gun advice? We'll never know because it won't happen.

    No, it won't happen. This administration doesn't want to debate gun control. It wants to dictate it. It will never engage in meaningful dialogue with anyone capable of holding up the other end of the conversation.

    ^ This. We are kidding ourselves if we even remotely think that the administration wants any sort of intelligent discussion. They want a dictatorship.

    If they wanted intelligent discussion, they would have pursued a dramatically different path. Instead, they have chosen to demonize guns, vilify law-abiding gun owners, and to brow-beat, bully, mischaracterize and strong-arm any and all who do not fall into lockstep with them. Any counters to their talking points are laughed off or ignored entirely.

    They should change the definition of "idiot" to read, JOE BIDEN. This man is clearly the best case for birth control I have seen.
    Ignorance is a long way from stupid, but left unchecked, can get there real fast.

    I think it is bad form to take advantage of mentally challenged individuals. Mr. Cruz should be ashamed of himself!!

    All Joe would do is just spout out the same old dribble he has. They never really argue the points and hammer out what is indeed true and false. Political debates are like two kids coloring with different color crayons and one saying his better because he has better colors.

    Don't know why Cruz bothers to bring publicity on himself, as his political career is constitutionally barred from going further than Senator.

    As for a debate between Cruz and Biden, it would be interesting and beneficial. It would have some impact on public opinion,
    and possibly on forthcoming laws. I'm not so sure it would work out the way most folks here think it would. I'd like to see it.

    Debates are good things, and should happen more often on more topics, and at more times and places than Sunday morning
    news magazines. And they should be real debates, not the pseudo debates we usually are treated to at election time.
    If the Union is once severed, the line of separation will grow wider and wider, and the controversies which are now debated and settled in the halls of legislation will then be tried in fields of battle and determined by the sword.

    Cruze should duct tape his mouth and tie both hands behind his back, just to make it a fair discussion with Crazy Uncle Joe.

    First, I'd like to find the source of Pres. O trying to pass his old lie of most of Mexico's illegal guns coming from the U.S. I know he just visited the Mex. president, who appears to be a bit anti-America, or maybe pro open border with America. I thought we disproved his lie back in 2009 when we found out that 19% of Mexican guns came from the U.S.?

    I like that Cruz frames the issue as, "How do we prevent crime". I am unfortunately cynical though. The press will not let Biden appear as the village idiot he is. Questions would not allow Cruz to frame the pragmatic argument he would need. Here's an example:
    Q: VP Biden, how do you feel when you see 90% of Americans supporting your proposals for gun safety, but evil, lying, Republicans like Sen. Cruz block sensible legislation?
    Q: Sen. Cruz, do you see yourself ever changing your view of insensitivity toward the families of children who have fallen victim to gun violence?

    Yeah, this is a no win. Ignore the Progressive idiots and take the fight to the streets. Educate the public, popularize shooting sports, gun safety, and advertise safe gun storage and ownership in main stream arenas. Show shooting as a safe, family oriented hobby. Show gun owners as responsible Americans from ALL walks of life. Show shooting in safe, sober, drug and alcohol free arenas in the light of day. Fight the stigma that guns are only owned by either cops or criminals.
