Which, of course leaves the question of why these gun control measures are being considered at all, if it is nothing more than the act of a Government disarming a populace of free peoples in violation of their Constitutional liberties.
“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.
Then he says:
“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,” he said.
Which is it? Will it save lives or will it not? And since when does infringing on the right to keep and bear arms not infringe upon the right to keep and bear arms? But wait, there’s more.
“I’m not saying there’s an absolute consensus on all these things,” Biden said, “but there is a sea change, a sea change in the attitudes of the American people. I believe the American people will not understand — and I know that everyone in that caucus understands — they won’t understand if we don’t act.”
Do SOMETHING. No matter how egregiously in violation of the Constitution. Why, one can almost smell the smoke from the Reichstag….
The tragedy in Chicago, the young teen who was killed in a turf-war drive by shooting, just what effect does a gun law have on that awful event? None whatsoever.
Joe Biden just admitted he knows that, too. Which should bring every last proposed gun control measure under the deepest suspicion. But with a beholden media, and a hypocritically anti-gun Hollywood, such is likely to not make a ripple without the voices of reason being raised above the din.
The Jawa Report outlines the simple dishonesty of MSNBC in their knowingly false reporting of the testimony of Neil Heslin. Once again, as with the “Trayvon” case, MSNBC has edited footage to produce an entirely false impression, in its further demonizing of those of us who believe in our Constitutional liberties, Second Amendment included. As TJR notes, neither MSNBC nor Martin Bashir has apologized for their deliberate falsehoods.
Josef Goebbels, call the Ministry of Propaganda.
