Biden: ‘Outgunned’ Police Support Assault Weapons Ban

January 24th, 2013 7:35 pm Josh Marks

On the same day Democratic lawmakers introduced the Assault Weapons Ban of 2013, one of the primary authors of the original 1994 ban said that reinstating it is about making the streets safer for law enforcement, who are currently “outgunned.”

Vice President Joe Biden, appointed by President Obama to lead a task force on reducing gun violence following the mass shooting in Newtown, CT that took the lives of 20 children and six adults, participated in a Google+ “Fireside Hangout” (modeled after FDR’s fireside chats) Thursday afternoon. The event was moderated by PBS NewsHour‘s Hari Sreenivasan.

"One of the reasons the assault weapons ban makes sense, even though it accounts for a small percentage of gun deaths, is because police organizations overwhelmingly support it because they are outgunned on the street by the bad guys and the proliferation of these weapons,” said Biden.

For my commentary on this I will quote from the Lew Rockwell Blog, "There is only one problem with Biden's statement: it isn't true, or it isn't true unless criminals are regularly using machine guns, flash-bang grenades, troop carriers, tanks, and other combat material."

Well, thats a bunch of bs. Most officers carry the same -if not better - weapons as the criminals.

IF they do support it at all, it's ONLY BECAUSE THEY ARE WRITTEN INTO THE LAW TO BE EXEMPT EVEN AFTER RETIREMENT.

At the time it was allowed to sunset, the FBI and ATF both categorically stated that the 1994 AWB did exactly nothing to reduce violent crime, and was largely irrelevant...

So why don't you take the main points & the stats that back them up and send it to Joe B by way of the White House website. It does no harm to show a liar you know he's lying.

Those convinced against their will, are of the same opinion still.

A new White House petition submitted by a "Guido Fawkes"


http://1.usa.gov/WtRm8B

Quote:WE PETITION THE OBAMA ADMINISTRATION TO:
Cease employing logical fallacies in an effort to deprive law abiding citizens their inalienable right to self defense.
Whereas key members of the Executive Branch continue to employ logical fallacies to further their desire to implement incremental gun control, until all citizens are unarmed.

We hereby call if the Obama administration to cease and desist all efforts to deceive the public in the furtherance of their agenda to disarm the law-abiding citizens of the United States. Furthermore, we welcome a debate of the issue on the merits of the ideas proposed by the administration without resorting to argumentation from repetition, false dilemmas, false attribution, and the many other techniques employed by the "campaign apparatus" to deceive and mislead the public.
