Joe Biden And The Second Amendment

“I guarantee you, Barack Obama ain’t taking my shotguns. . . . I got two. If he tries to fool with my Beretta, he’s got a problem. I like that little over and under, you know? I’m not bad with it.”
--Joe Biden

"I'll tell you what, if that [gun] is his baby, he needs help. I don't know that he is mentally qualified to own that gun."
-- Joe Biden

I've already written about Barack Obama's take on the 2nd Amendment, but what about his sidekick, Joe the Dumber. Is he the swaggering soldier swinging a Beretta in each hand, daring Obama to pry them out of his fingers? (And before you write, yes, I am aware that Biden received five student draft deferments during Vietnam and wasn't actually a soldier.) Or is he the condescending school marm who feels qualified to determine who is or isn't qualified to own a gun?

As John McCain continues to recommend about the Democratic ticket, look beyond the well-written rhetoric and plastic promises to focus on their records.

  • Biden voted to ban virtually all hunting rifle ammunition. (U.S. Senate, S. 397, vote 217; U.S. Senate, S. 1805, vote 28)
  • Biden wrote and introduced one the the first bills to ban semi-automatic firearms. (Biden Bill, S. 1970, '89)
  • Biden voted to ban hundreds of models of common rifles and shotguns. (U.S. Senate, S. 1805, vote 24; U.S. Senate, S. 1607, vote 375)
  • Biden voted in support of liability lawsuits against firearm manufacturers for the misuse of their products by others. (U.S. Senate, S. 397, Vote 219)
  • Biden voted against confirming pro-2nd Amendment justices to the Supreme Court. (Samuel Alito, vote 2; John Roberts Jr., vote 245; Clarence Thomas, vote 220).

Given Biden's fatuous understanding of the Constitution, it could be that he just had all those crazy amendments mixed up in his plug-scarred head and was never really sure what he was actually voting for. But whatever the reason, it is certain that when gun legislation is on the docket, good ol' Joe is sitting in his blind ready to unload on sportsmen.

    I guarantee he will have a fight on his hands from this side of the fence too if he starts to abandon his obligation to uphold the Consitution and the 2nd Amendment.

    There's only one way he's getting mine, and it won't be pretty.

    But it seems to me that Obama and Biden are competing for a doubtful distinction: which of them best qualifies to be a centerpiece for a bouquet of a__holes?

    The 2nd Amendment was reinterpreted in D.C. with a ban that was only recently overturned in the Supreme Court by a single vote. If this "bouquet of a_holes" gets elected, I'm not so sure the Justices they appoint will be so friendly to that particular Constitutional right.
