Biden on assault weapons ban: "Think about Newtown"
CBSNews.com ^ | 3/21/2013 | LUCY MADISON

Posted on 03/21/2013 11:25:43 AM PDT by South40

"Three months ago, a deranged man walked into Sandy Hook Elementary with a weapon of war," he said. "Let's get this straight. This is not about anybody's constitutional right to own a weapon. For all those who say we shouldn't and can't ban assault weapons - for all those who say the politics is too hard, how can they say that?... When you take a look at those 20 beautiful babies and what happened to them? And those six teachers and administrators?"

And those six teachers and administrators?

Imagine if the Principal had an AR in a cabinet the day that loon came to her school... and the janitor had a sidearm... and a couple of teachers were armed.

The Left can't imagine people taking their destiny into their own hands.

What war was an AR-15 used in?

Also, Stupid Joe, Adam Lanza is the person who committed this crime, allegedly.

No one else in this country was involved. The rights of innocent people are not revoked as a result of the actions of a criminal.

If you have a problem with what happened in Newton, then take it up with Adam.

But he’s dead you say?

Then it’s over.

What plugs REALLY wants to say is, "Your constitutional rights don't matter to us, your overlords. To those who say we can't ban semiautomatic guns, screw you because we CAN. Your life belongs to your masters."

The left would tell you how horrible it would be to have a shootout at a school. As if having innocent victims slaughtered with no one having a chance of stopping the shooter is better.

Well, Joe: How about when you look at the gun-free zone sign, which was an open invitation to the whack-job that this was a soft target?

Maybe we need to ban gun free zone signing.

You got to give ol’ Joe credit, he doesn't even realize he's lost when everybody else around has seen the writing on the wall and folded. He's just like an old wind up toy that just keeps mindless beating his head against the wall until somebody finally feels sorry for him and turns him another direction.

Joe - my rights were not granted to me by the government, and it can’t revoke them either.

I have delegated certain authority to the government - Don’t exceed the authority granted, or risk that all authority granted to the government is revoked.

Gee Joe, I don’t remember you asking for an “assault weapons” ban after Aurora, Colorado..I guess since it was an election year, didn’t want to take a chance that your party would lose..but hey, since your Commie messiah “won” now you can try taking away our guns..screw you Joe!

This is where an enterprising young reporter should ask Joe what war and what army uses an AR-15.

Actually Bidet, The Supreme Court opined in Miller v. US, 1939 it is a Constitutional right to bear guns that are common to the military.

"Uses"? None. The AR15 was "used" by the US military in the Vietnam War over 38 years ago.

This is just the latest bold faced lie the left has come up with. Expect more. If the facts do not work for them they either make up their own or just tell outright lies.

I spent many months in Vietnam and didn't see a single AR-15. I saw a lot of M-16’s but not a single AR. Are we talking about the same Vietnam war???

I was never there and I thank you for your service. But there is a lot of information available that says the AR15 was used, albeit not with much success.

In the early 1960's, U.S. Special Forces in Vietnam used the AR15 and it was given glowing reports. Although opposed by the Ordnance Corp, the Armalite AR-15 was adopted by the Secretary of Defense as the 5.56mm M16 rifle. In November 1965, the 1st Cavalry Division turned back North Vietnamese regulars in a savage battle in the Ia Drang Valley. LTC Harold G. Moore lauded the new M16 rifle his troops had used. "Brave soldiers and the M16 brought this victory," he declared.

Many elitist liberals want (and may need) the protection of guns though they are adamant in their arguments that we average citizens have no such need. Crazy Joe is no different in that regard.

Dear Joe Plugs,

Please explain to us why Big Sis is stockpiling billions and billions of hollow core plinking ammo rounds and distributing armored personnel carriers to domestic law enforcement agencies and launching private citizen monitoring drones. The enemy IS NOT the gun carrying American citizen, it IS the gun carrying Socialist American government. Let's just make it a fair fight!

The original name or designated by the military as M-16 were called by Eugene Stoner as select fire AR-15s.

It the same as mil-spec M-9s sidearms which are really Bernetta 92fs.

Many years ago, I came to the conclusion that the elites would really like to return to some form of feudalism and that many of our “betters” in government (worldwide) strive for this. The thought of us “peasants” providing for ourselves and defending ourselves is anathema to them and they truly despise that kind of personal liberty. They have long sought and developed ways to convince the people to enshackle themselves and return to feudal servitude. Look at damned near every liberal solution to problems/issues - surrender more power and liberty to the state. “Hardscrabble Joe” is one such elite and he can piss off, for all I care.
