Vice President Joe Biden wielded a military-style assault weapon (of war) in front of a group of children, the Washington Free Beacon has learned.
The following image, obtained exclusively by the Free Beacon, shows Biden wielded what appears to be bright yellow object resembling an assault weapon. The photo was taken at the vice presidents annual summer kick-off party at the Naval Observatory. It is unclear if the weapon is loaded.
The shocking image is at odds with Bidens support for a ban on military-style assault weapons. In 2013, Biden told NPR that he hasnt given up his pursuit of an assault weapons, which is one of the most controversial aspects of the Democratic campaign to scale back Second Amendment rights. Military-style assault weapons arethese are weapons of war, Biden said. They dont belong in the street.
But apparently, they do belong in our backyards, and in full view of our nations children, who, we should note, represent the future. Equally perplexing is Bidens choosing a rifle over his weapon of choice, the shotgun. In a 2013 interview with Field and Stream, Biden said:
Well, you know, my shotgun will do better for you than your AR-15, because you want to keep someone away from your house, just fire the shotgun through the door. Most people can handle a shotgun a hell of a lot better than they can a semiautomatic weapon in terms of both their aim and in terms of their ability to deter people coming. We can argue whether thats true or not, but it is no argument that, for example, a shotgun could do the same job of protecting you. Now, granted, you can come back and say, Well, a machine gun could do a better job of protecting me. No ones arguing we should make machine guns legal.
Biden is the presumed frontrunner for the Democratic presidential nomination in 2016.
Just demonstrating how his wife scares off intruders by firing in the air...
You gotta love that.
They should be expelled for being seen with Bidet.
Because his face is in shadow I’m unable to see his brown nose. But I can see the weapon.
PLEASE let plugs be the democrat nominee..
I think Romney could beat him ;)
well.. I wouldn’t put any money down on it.
Cruz would wipe the floor with him though.
Lots of people could wipe the floor with Biden, I think.
Is it loaded?
(That's a trick question.)
sure.. but I am talking about the GOPe..
I know. That’s what’s scary ... Plugs Biden with his room-temperature IQ could win, because the Republicans run a houseplant.
>Cruz would wipe the floor with him though.<
Yes he would, but considering the intelligence of the voting public, Biden could still be the weener when the votes are counted.
