Biden Compares Gun Control to Car Air Bags: ´We´re Saving Lives´
Cybercast News Service ^ | 1/10/13 | Fred Lucas

Vice President Joe Biden on Thursday compared restrictions on guns to auto safety regulations such as air bags, by saying neither the gun nor the auto industries wanted regulations to save lives. “Well they didn’t want to have air bags. Well, guess what? We have air bags. We’re saving lives,” Biden told reporters before a meeting with several stakeholders on the gun-control issue, as he plans to craft a set of proposals for President Barack Obama by Tuesday, Jan. 15. The proposals are expected to include a renewed ban on so-called assault weapons, and beefed-up background checks.

Of course there are no seat belts on the preferred choice of travel for commies; i.e., buses and trains.

Joe Biden is particularly dense ~ probably from failed brain surgery ~ but here he really blew it. Air bags work primarily because they contain what amounts to a SHOTGUN SHELL!

Guy doesn't want to protect young children in grade school but he wants high caliber low gauge ammunition in every car!

A sanctimonious/ windbag.

Must be nice to have armed body guards and work in offices with armed security.

We peons have to work in "gun-free" zones where we're sitting ducks.

The only lives they're saving are those of the criminals, lunatics, and jack-booted, ninja-suited thugs.

That's one more thing that reinforces the perception/fact that you are indeed a buffoon, Joe.

WTF is this idiot talking about... his analogy is stupid.... OK Joe how about we invent a suit that everyone can wear and if they are shot at a kevlar shield envelops them and they are protected? Now will you leave guns alone? No didn’t think you would.

Logic is just not a part of the Liberal mind.

That is why every one of their gun control attempts must be stopped it’s like Healthcare Obama and the lefties want universal government control, Obamacare is the first step to that end... Obama and the left want guns out of the public sector, whatever they craft will be the first step toward that end...

No matter what they say, it is all lies and it makes no logical sense to control guns...

We need a national call to ban insane people that would massacre the innocent and a ban on idiot polticians like Obama and Biden that would attempt to politicize the tragedy of Sandy Hook to push a political agenda.

Ban violent movies, Ban violent video games, Ban violent books.

Biden quote on abortion (Note that there are over 3,200 abortions per day in the United States):

"I do not believe that we have a right to tell other people that women can't control their body. It's a decision between them and their doctor, in my view. And the Supreme Court--I'm not going to interfere with that."

What about firearms, Joe? What about the Supreme Court decisions for women and men, affirming their Second Amendment RIGHTS, Joe??

If airbags save lives, why are car owners told not to put children under 12 in the front seats of their cars. Also why is it next to impossible to get an override switch installed to turn off the airbags?

Joe’s brilliance is astounding.

I’m fairly certain airbags aren’t in the Bill of Rights.

Apples and oranges.

As most of us learned in Drivers Ed., operating a motor vehicle on a public roadway is a privilege, not a right.

Joe needs to start with airbags on school buses. That will save some lives.
