Biden: Obama Ain't Taking My Shotguns; He's Got a Problem If He Fools With My Beretta
Saturday, September 20, 2008 | Kristinn

Posted on 09/20/2008 2:25:07 PM PDT by kristinn

Democratic vice presidential nominee Sen. Joe Biden of Delaware sent a stern message to his boss, Democratic presidential nominee Sen. Barack Obama of Illinois to keep his hands off Biden's guns.

As reported by ABC News and Fox News this afternoon, Biden was trying to reassure rural Virginia voters that they have nothing to fear about losing their Second Amendment rights under an Obama administration.

From ABC:"I guarantee you Barack Obama ain't taking my shotguns, so don't buy that malarkey," Biden said Saturday at the United Mine Workers of America's annual fish fry in Castlewood, Virginia. "Don't buy that malarkey. They're going to start peddling that to you."

Biden told the crowd that he himself is a gun owner. "I got two," Biden said, "if he tries to fool with my Beretta, he's got a problem. I like that little over and under, you know? I'm not bad with it. So give me a break. Give me a break."

From Fox:

Biden has said he doesn’t hunt, but shoots skeet with the two shotguns. “I like that little over and under, you know? I’m not bad with it,” he said today.

Does that mean Biden’s going to fight the Obamessiah if he tries to take away my Beretta 1201FP too?

Anti-Biden Sarcasm Torpedo ARMED. FIRE!!

(For Biden, the right to keep and bear arms would interfere with his right to keep his own foot.)

So if Biden *owned* any real guns, he'd be in a wheelchair.

"Stand up, Chuck!"

Cheers!

He says he has two guns, ones a baretta and ones an O/U shotgun. But he likes to shoot skeet with two shotguns? Either he has an unregistered one or he’s making stuff up again...

How many times does it have to be said?

Democrats have always been happy to support our right to own double-barreled shotguns and hunt ducks.

No kidding, what does a Beretta over/under run these days, $5,000-$10,000?

Here’s what Stupid Joe really thinks about guns when he votes:

“Rated F by the NRA, indicating a pro-gun control voting record.
Biden scores F by NRA on pro-gun rights policies
While widely recognized today as a major political force and as America’s foremost defender of Second Amendment rights, the National Rifle Association (NRA) has, since its inception, been the premier firearms education organization in the world. But our successes would not be possible without the tireless efforts and countless hours of service our nearly three million members have given to champion Second Amendment rights and support NRA programs.

But our successes would not be possible without the tireless efforts and countless hours of service our nearly three million members have given to champion Second Amendment rights and support NRA programs.

The following ratings are based on lifetime voting records on gun issues and the results of a questionaire sent to all Congressional candidates; the NRA assigned a letter grade (with A+ being the highest and F being the lowest).”

Biden's an idiot! The good folks back home in Castlewood don't have Berettas....they have Colts, S&Ws, Rugers, and Brownings.

Berettas...jeeez!

NOt necessarily. Here in Florida as well as most states you can purchase a weapon from a private individual. Get a bill of sale and never register it.
You can also buy one at say a gun show from a private individual and not register it.
If you get one from a licenced dealer then you have to register it.
Moral?
Don’t buy your gun from a dealer.

Forget licensing the Beretta, Biden’s mouth is a far more dangerous weapon; and it’s always going off.

"If you get one from a licensed dealer then you have to register it."

When you figure out who to register it with please let the rest of us Floridians know so we can register ours.

P.S. There is no gun registration requirement in Florida no matter where you obtain it.

As if gun control is about keeping millionaire politicians from owning expensive shotguns. Is there an Elmer Fudd as stupid as Biden thinks they are? If Biden had truly said, “Obama is not going to take away my AR-15 or your Kalashnikov,” that would be impressive (although I still would not believe him). And not politician who truly supports citizens owning rifles of military utility would be accepted on the Democrat ticket.

FACT: Any double-barrelled shotguns with dual triggers are BANNABLE TODAY by the rogue pork of the BATF as machineguns. They are TOLERATED only at the beneficence of the BATF, since one need only tie a string between the two triggers to fire two rounds with one pull of the trigger. Thus they are ALL readily convertable to fully automatic fire, under the law. They have ALREADY prosecuted on this! They have ALREADY banned other shotguns with a bore over .5 inches in diameter.

Then why do you have to go through the process of background,
and three day wait on handguns?
When you do that you know they register it.

For that matter, wouldn't a lot of straight-tube-magazine rifles also fit that definition? Just load the magazine with pointed (non-plastic-tip) bullets, chamber a round, pull the trigger once, and potentially fire off all the rounds in the magazine.

Incidentally, the way the AWB was written, it would seem to prohibit something like a bass drum, since such an instrument could easily hold more than ten rounds (probably more than 10,000) and nothing in the AWB language required that a drum or other device actually be able to usefully feed ammunition into a firearm.

We don’t need Joe Biden’s guarantee against Barack Obama taking guns. We already have a guarantee against Barack Obama taking guns. It’s called the Second Amendment.
