...has there been a worse Vice President of the United States in the past 50 years than our current one, Joe Biden, number 47 in a mostly undistinguished line of back-ups just a heart beat away from control of the nuclear codes?
Don't bother summoning up the names of Dick Cheney or Dan Quayle... whatever they did or didn't do, they didn't go out and cynically pretend to know something about which they are demonstrably clueless as "Hairplug Joe" has done on at least two occasions over the past month.
In the wake of the Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting President Obama named the former six-term Senator from Delaware to head his new Gun Violence Task Force and in the ten weeks since, has gone public with the following:
He further goes on to advise any woman who feels threatened by intruders to go out on the porch and fire both barrels into the air, personally "guaranteeing" that this action will scare away any ne'er-do-wells, conveniently ignoring that following his advice would result in felony charges against the shooter in most states.
"If you want to keep someone away from your house, just fire the shotgun through the door."
(It would seen that Joe Biden and Oscar Pistorius had the same self defense firearms instructor.)
Ironically, this past Monday a 22-year-old Virginia Beach man was charged with reckless handling of a firearm for doing exactly what the Vice President recommended.
Biden's entire thesis is that "you don't need an AR15 'assault weapon' to protect yourself in the home."
Additionally, the Vice President asserts that a shotgun is a great deal easier for a woman to shoot than an AR15, which proposition is jaw-droppingly uninformed.
(He has no idea what he is blathering about, and numerous people who are familiar with the subject, have posted graphic videos on the Internet exposing the man for talking through his hat.)
I understand that Biden is doing the President's bidding and working to further the Administration's civilian disarmament agenda, but the way he is going about it is foolhardy, dangerous and in some instances, counseling the otherwise law-abiding to break the law.
The man is a menace!
Dean, Maybe it's me, but I just read my little pocket Constitution again. I didn't notice any limitations on the type of arms the people could bear or, for that matter, limitations on the ammunition therein.
While the Joe Biden's of the world, like Mario lite, do smoke and mirrors, we still have not addressed the underlying cause of such depraved indifference to life. Maybe that would be a good place to start. Then again, a country that allows its unborn children to be killed in the name of convenience shouldn't be surprised at the result.
I am now off my soapbox. And yes, I got a nosebleed.
