Biden: Gun Owners ‘Like The Way It Feels…Like Driving a Ferrari’
ABC News ^ | April 11, 2013 | Mary Bruce, Arlette Saenz

Posted on 04/11/2013 8:35:59 AM PDT by skimbell

Vice President Joe Biden this morning said that the “cultural norm” about gun ownership has changed, arguing that many people buy guns, not for protection or hunting, but because “it’s like driving a Ferrari.”

“It used to be we were dealing almost exclusively with hunters,” Biden said on MSNBC. “There’s a whole new sort of group of individuals now who, I don’t know what the numbers are, that never hunt at all but they own guns for one of two reasons...

No, Biteme, that ain't it and you know it.

We know what you plan on doing when you get the absolute power you so desperately desire.

This from the idiot that says this “If you want to protect yourself, get a double‑barrel shotgun. Have the shells, a 12‑gauge shotgun, and I promise you as I told my wife We live in an area that’s wooded and somewhat secluded. Said, “Jill, if there’s ever a problem, just walk out on the balcony here or walk out, put that double‑barrel shotgun and fire two blasts outside the house. I promise you who is ever coming in is not going to, you don’t need an AR‑15. It’s harder to aim, it’s harder to use. And in fact, you don’t need 30 rounds to protect yourself. Buy a shotgun. Buy a shotgun.” http://www.glennbeck.com/2013/02/20/joe-bidens-horrible-advice-on-self-defense/

In any sane, mature society, this imbecile would be committed to your local loony bin.

But - thanks to “progressives” the loony bins have all been closed and the former inhabitants are now investing your congress and presidency.

CW-II - not wanted, but seemingly inevitable.

One of our locals (Rochester NY) c 1830 was a big shooter even inventing gun improvements. Now, he had a brother. Everyone said he was looney c 1870 and kept an arsenal...

From a letter I found...I'd say he was a big gun collector. He wrote to a gun company Winchester or Remington?? (forgot) and asked about making him a special gun. They wrote back...The cost would be outrageous.

Davey Crockett always got excited when he picked up his gun.

The picture?? He's talking about Weiner...

She'd likely hit one or two of countless armed secret service guys surrounding her house. He needs his meds checked.

I hate having to take a gun everywhere I go, It is a pain. Unfortunately, I have to because of 50 years of failed government policies. Drug crime, racial crime, short prison terms, and the general disintegration of civilized society, all related to the Great Society and the War on Poverty.

Is this guy channeling Boris Yeltsin, now??????

No, Senile Joe, it’s NOT like driving a Ferrari.

Placing the anal-visualized idea that holding a firearm and comparing it to driving a Ferrari is beyond even what Stephen Hawkings can imagine!

It is NOT about ‘power’. It is that the individual, of their OWN decision, chooses to own something that WILL allow them to protect themselves, when ‘the government’ cannot or will not. It is the decision of a FREE INDIVIDUAL, and NOT the decision of some elected or non-elected bureaucrat, that makes ALL THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN BEING A FREE CITIZEN OR A SLAVE.

It’s the difference between driving a Ferrari or any other car of your own and being locked in a cell or slave quarters. I like the way freedom feels - and that’s why the far left hates guns, because they hate freedom.

I feel dumber for having read Biden's words.

Sorry if this is too much from ABC but I have to post it to expose this idiocy.

Vice President Joe Biden this morning said that the “cultural norm” about gun ownership has changed, arguing that many people buy guns, not for protection or hunting, but because “it’s like driving a Ferrari.”

“It used to be we were dealing almost exclusively with hunters,” Biden said on MSNBC. “There’s a whole new sort of group of individuals now who, I don’t know what the numbers are, that never hunt at all but they own guns for one of two reasons: self protection or they just like the feel of that AR-15 at the range.”

So which is it, Slow Joe? In two sentences you say that they aren't buying guns for protection while at the same time that is one of the two reasons why they are buying guns.

Maybe it’s just me, but firing a Les Baer AR-15 chambered in .308 is BETTER than driving some silly little Italian car.

Joe is Obama's insurance policy.
That's one of the main reasons Obama picked him in 2008 and stuck with him in 2012.

He's counting on people being so scared of having Joe in the White House that even the most anti-Obama among them wouldn't swap him for Joe.

He can get away with it because the paycheck pro-gunners never bothered to ask our highnesses if they think Americans have the right to use a firearm for self-defense. When Bozo’s Circus released the skeet shoot photo I read hundreds of accounts of what was techically wrong but none dared ask if he thinks we are allowed self defense with a fire arm. But that is typical the Paycheck Conservatives only get to be paycheck cons if they chase the sticks the Liberal Left throws.

If these idiots had their way, the “little people” would not be allowed to joyride in a Ferrari. Or drive any car for that matter.

We would all be waiting for overcrowded “green” buses in the streets while the "important people" zoom by and splash mud on us with their armored diesel powered “beasts”.

Hey,Plugs....I don't hunt.Never have,never will.And I've never driven a Ferrari...and I never will.If I was worth a billion dollars I'd drive a Honda,Toyota or Chevy.

FYI,Plugs,the Second Amendment isn't even *remotely* about hunting...or Ferraris.It's about protection.Primarily about protection from rogue politicians.*That* is what the Founding Fathers had in mind when it was included in the Bill of Rights,second in importance only to the freedom of speech and religion.Secondly,it's about protection from criminals.The Founding Fathers may,or may not,have had that in mind when crafting the Bill of Rights.If fidelity to the Second Amendment benefits hunters then,IMO,that nothing more than icing on the cake.

THE SECOND AMENDMENT IS ABOUT COMMON CITIZENS PROTECTING THEMSELVES FROM SCUM LIKE YOU,PLUGS!

And BTW,Plugs....just how many armed men and women are guarding you 24/7/366?

Biden ain't no idiot. Him crazy like fox.

Do not forget for an instant that this is the man who discovered Barack Hussein Obama Jr. (or II) the gay disbarred Illinois crackhead community organizer and absent State Rep, and somehow turned the constitutionally ineligible Presidential candidate into your POTUS.

He is a most skillful campaigner and a die-hard partisan. In fact, I think he is willing to run as President next time, with Michelle as VP, and then die on cue, leaving her as President. This SOB, who looks like a chicken and says outlandish stuff is belovèd of his party and would give up his life for it.

And that's no shiite.

Like driving a Ferrari?

Don’t they go like 160mph or whatever?

That exceeds our speed limits and children might be hurt. No one needs to go that fast.

Should Ferrari’s be banned?
