Biden: New gun controls likely won't end shootings

Vice President Joe Biden acknowledged that new gun laws would not "fundamentally alter" the likelihood of another mass shooting, though he insisted there has been a "sea change" in American views on guns in the wake of Newtown.

"Nothing we're going to do is going to fundamentally alter or eliminate the possibility of another mass shooting or guarantee that we will bring gun deaths down to 1,000 a year from what it is now," Biden told reporters Thursday afternoon after he spent over an hour lunching with Democratic senators at the Capitol.

What is a "sea change"? Trying to understand Joe is like trying to have a conversation with a drunk at 2 a.m.

Maybe he meant to use "change in tide" as a metaphor on how (supposedly) American's feel about firearms? Shrug

Either way the dude is a moron. Angry

"Sea of change" is the correct term, meaning a whole lot of change.

And they said McCain was old and befuddled.

I guess I was thinking more along the lines of "turning of the tide", meaning to express a change in direction as relates to human thought or behavior.

That works too. But coming from Joe, it could mean anything.

Quote:WASHINGTON — Vice President Joe Biden conceded on Thursday that gun regulations aren’t going to end every murder or eliminate the possibility of another mass shooting, but argued changes are needed to save lives.

“Nothing we’re going to do is going to fundamentally alter or eliminate the possibility of another mass shooting or guarantee that we will bring gun deaths down to a thousand a year from what we’re at now,” Biden told reporters after meeting with Senate Democrats in the Capitol. “But there are things that we can do demonstrably can do that have virtually zero impact on your Second Amendment right to own a weapon for both self defense and recreation that can save some lives.”

As a staffer tried unsuccessfully to cut Biden off repeatedly, the vice president argued to reporters that none of the proposals would infringe on constitutional rights.

It's the "BILL OF RIGHTS" not the bill of "needs"

Even his handlers can't keep him muzzled long enough to prevent him from putting his foot in his mouth.

The problem with Joe is that he has a terrible tendency to do something politically awful--- telling the truth.

He's clearly torn between being a Cheney-like soldier VP and just cutting through the political bullshit.
