Default Uncle Joe Biden Still Pushing AWB After Senate Says It's Dead. It AIN'T!

The Party of the Left will never stop trying to take away the gun rights of American citizens. From today's Christian Science Monitor online...


Washington

For the second day in a row, Vice President Joe Biden made an emotional plea for gun-control legislation – including an assault weapons ban that Senate majority leader Harry Reid has already removed from the bill, saying it can’t pass.

Speaking Thursday alongside Michael Bloomberg, New York mayor and antigun activist, Vice President Biden asserted that some of the victims of last December’s Newtown, Conn., massacre might be alive today had those restrictions been in place.

“For all those who say we shouldn't and can't ban assault weapons, for all those who say the politics is too hard,” Biden said at City Hall in New York, accompanied also by parents of Newtown victims, “how can they say that when you take a look at those 20 beautiful babies and what happened to them and those six teachers and administrators?”

The day before, Biden told NPR he’s not giving up on an assault-weapons ban. “We are still pushing that it pass,” said Biden, a former senator. “The same thing was told to me when the first assault weapons ban in 1994 was attached to the Biden crime bill – that it couldn’t possibly pass.”

The ban did eventually pass, and was in place for 10 years, before it expired in 2004.

But why is Biden still pushing so hard for something the top Democrat in the Senate says can’t pass, and will not be part of the gun-control package that goes before Congress after the Easter recess? Senator Reid said Tuesday the assault weapons ban didn’t even have 40 votes, out of 60 needed to overcome a filibuster.

Three [excerpted] reasons:

1.Biden is the head of President Obama’s gun-control task force...
2.Biden is also speaking to the base of the Democratic Party...
3.Biden is contemplating a run for the presidency in 2016, and wants to keep Democratic activists happy...

White House chief of staff Denis McDonough said Tuesday that Feinstein could still get her vote by bringing up the assault-weapons ban as an amendment to another bill.

“We’re going to work on this, we’re going to find the votes, and it deserves a vote,” Mr. McDonough said on CNN. “Let’s see if we can get it done.”

gun control isn't about reducing or ending gun violence. it's about control and the only way they could hope to acheive that goal is to disarm American citizens.

notice it's always about gun violence. what about violence done without a gun! what about rape and sexual assault upon children? when they decide they want to attack the real problems, such as the criminals that commit these violent crimes, instead of attacking guns and those owned by LAC's, then i might be willing to listen to them.

but it never has been about crime or gun violence. that's nothing more than smoke and mirrors being used to decieve people about their true agenda, which is absolute control. an unarmed subject is easier to coerce into doing what you want him to do rather than the armed citizen!

Louis,

Isn't it amazing! After Harry Reid is not bringing the bill to the floor! Biden is still wasting our Tax Dollars traveling all over the country at our expense! When we certainly have more important things to spend the money on. Like helping those who have been diligently seeking employment reference being out of work! Including my own son who is a quality control engineer after a company cut back and several people lost their job three weeks ago on a Friday without notice! "WOW!" A little personal thought here on my part being he is raising two children on his own and tight on budget as most are these days. I am not a bit pleased with what is going on with our government, including jobs and the general welfare of our citizens being over 12 Million out of work! (These comments do not include the freeloader entitlement group!) I said those who are trying to find a job and "want" to work! Like my boy! Oh well I am certainly praying for him to find work as many of you are and also have friends who are! God Bless all of you!

Again, standing on the graves of those children. As if the murderer was stopped by the laws already in existence.

never has and never will be, look at the NFA, they said it was to "stop the mob" but we all know that wasn't true, it was because the prohibition was ending and lots of fdr's ATF agents would loose their jobs, so gun control seemed like a good idea to keep his friends in work and disarm the American people. The same people who call for gun control and lie saying its to stop crime are the same people who called for the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan and said they were to "stop the terrorists" but we all know that isn't true.

Joe Biden? Hell he is a joke. Obama needs an idiot to clean his kitchen and open White House mail. No one takes this hand carved dummy seriously.
Biden becoming president? Obama tells him if he is a good boy he will make him Chief Executive. Hell Joe this is the same guy who said he would end the Recession, end the war, close Guantanamo, balance the budget.
