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 its like driving a Ferrari.
It used to be we were dealing almost exclusively with hunters, Biden said on MSNBC. Theres a whole new sort of group of individuals now who, I dont know what the numbers are, that never hunt at all but they own guns for one of two reasons...

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.
Yes, these wannabe tyrants need to be pinned down with
“what do you want to do that you can’t do without disarming the people?”
They seem to have a particular fear of
“America’s Rifle - 15”
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.
That's an insult to a man who was instrumental in putting the final nail in the coffin of the Soviet Union.
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.
Joe Robinette lived in Khartoum
Took a lesbian up to his room,
..But they argued a lot
..About who should do what,
And quite how and with what and to whom.
Invective: let’s keep it classy FR!
“Keep it bright, keep it light,
“Keep it classy, keep it sassy
“Keep it happy, keep it sappy..
“Keep it gay!” Joey Robinette Biiiiteme
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 its like driving a Ferrari.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.
It used to be we were dealing almost exclusively with hunters, Biden said on MSNBC. Theres a whole new sort of group of individuals now who, I dont 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.
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.
So many Progressives! Where will we bury them all?
Its imperative for them to drive the narrative that our firearms are not needed in the progressive utopia and the low information voter is the target market. all well planned even if it sound ludicrous to us.
Biden's wrong again - just like always.
