In what he called a “stroke of genius,” Vice-President Joe Biden suggested that President Obama could bypass both Congress and the Constitution by using an Executive Order to solve the gun violence crisis.

“It was when I heard people talking about minting trillion dollar platinum coins to solve the debt ceiling thing that I got the idea of using platinum to get around 2nd Amendment objections to gun control,” Biden boasted. “If the President were to simply require that platinum be the only metal permitted in bullets we could effectively eliminate privately held guns without actually banning them.”

Biden wan’t picked as VP for his brilliance.

He was picked because he wasn’t smart enough to think for himself and would do anything the party and the Muslim told him to do.

So far it’s workd out great for Obama.

Biden is Obama’s Steppinfetchit.

Stupid is as stupid does. And he did stupid.

Sorry, Jose. Executive orders are not binding on the public. Besides, we only need silver bullets.

As far as I'm concerned, Biden was picked because he was Obama's ideal form of assassination insurance.

The mark of great satire is when its so stupid that its plausible. This hits the mark.

” require that platinum be the only metal permitted in bullets”

Seems like good enough reason for another revolution.

I believe Biden was picked so that Obama would not be the dumbest person in the administration.

I think all vice-presidents should be required to demonstrate that they have a functioning brain stem before they can take office.

Or, looked at another way, the mark of a truly doomed society is when your opponents are so wacky and far out that they are beyond satire......

*** “If the President were to simply require that platinum be the only metal permitted in bullets we could effectively eliminate privately held guns without actually banning them.” ***

Stupidity in action.

I used to dig bullets out of the backstop of an old military range. Found many bullets undeformed, just rifling and mud on them.

I know where there are lots of backstops ner here.

Hmmm. Maybe the Lone Ranger was right and silver bullets are the way to go? I do have bullet casting equipment.

Joe, it is not going to turn out the way you expect it to.

This came across as just stupid enough that he might actually have said it — OTOH, now that someone else has said it, Plugs the Plagiarist is more likely to try to pass it off as his own idea.

Lone Ranger / Satire ping.

Thanks navysealdad.

When the WhiteyHut made Biteme the leader of the “kill the 2nd Amendment” deal, I knew it was a joke, even if its serious as a heart attack to our liberty. Nobama really likes to jerk America’s chain, while he and his buddies are picking our collective pockets.

Slow Joe, the debt problem is yours because you refused to address the asshats that hit our inherent interest. If you wish for folks to use ammunition that they cannot afford, they will buy cheaper ammo. Stay Safe.
