Biden says consensus emerging on gun safety
#1
Quote:WASHINGTON (AP) — Pledging swift action to curb gun violence, Vice President Joe Biden said he would deliver new policy proposals to President Barack Obama by Tuesday.

Biden said that while he had not finalized his recommendations, a consensus was emerging over banning assault weapons and high-capacity ammunition magazines, as well as tightening background checks.

Some of those measures are likely to face opposition from some pro-gun groups, most notably the powerful National Rifle Association. A representative from the NRA was scheduled to meet with Biden Thursday afternoon.

Obama, spurred by the horrific shooting of school children in Newtown, Conn., appointed Biden to lead a task force on preventing gun violence. He set a late January deadline for the group's recommendations, which he pledged to act on swiftly.

The vice president said Thursday that while no recommendations would eliminate all future mass shootings, "there has got to be some common ground, to not solve every problem but diminish the probability."

Good to see that he's going to give it serious thought before turning the full anti over to big O next week. More here.

Diminish the probability?? The probability is already off the chart low.....just a BS talking point they came up with.

Of course it is. They have even better access to the FBI statistics than we do so you know damn good and well that they know that you are more apt to be bludgeoned to death with a hammer than to be killed with a modern sporting rifle. They're just trying to disarm us and using the press to spread their lies.

How the bloody blue blazes can it be called consensus when they started out with an desired conclusion?

What a bunch of lying rotten batards! This whole thing was nothing but a charade to provide a smoke-screen and spread the blame for any political fallout that might occur.

I watched Biden's press conference live over lunch today. Of course there was overwhelming support starting to emerge. He listed the organizations that he had already spoken to and not one of them was a sportsmen's group, firearm manufacturer or gun rights organization.

I'm pretty sure that if I hold a summit and only invite 15th century mariners, the overwhelming consensus will be that the earth is really flat.

Well, it is quite simple... create a taskforce comprised entirely of control freaks who hate guns, then have them vote on anti gun ideas proposed by other gun hating control freaks that have absolutely no fucking clue about what they are running their cum dumpsters about.

If he only gets the opinions of a certain demographic, and they all agree, it is a consensus for that group.
A gun rack in a pick-up is not for holding guns. Its a place for women to hold on to. Smile

I think the majority amongst us have a facebook account. I suggest we start bombarding FB with more of these posts.
The 2nd amendment support on facebook is already growing rapidly, so why not add some more for the good cause?
