Driving that Trans Am he has is probably better than any Ferreri! And I bet it will do 150!

“It used to be we were dealing almost exclusively with hunters,”

They were dealing almost exclusively with hunters because they wanted to exclude from the talks anyone who truly understood the intent of the 2nd Amendment, and it had nothing to with hunting.

They’re beginning to lose the “hunting and self-protection” meme from their framing of the debate and it worries them.

Government should be worried...about its true bosses.

Probably not committed to the local loony bin, but I can see Joe working Midnight to 8 AM at a 24 hour 7-11.
Talking to himsel@ , when at about 3 AM, some kid comes in wearing an army jacket, and pulls an illegal gun on him, demanding what’s in the register.
Hey, it happened to me, when I had a weekend job when I was about 20.

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.

They have also decreed that freedom of religion is not needed in their utopia, as Hobby Lobby and many Catholic charities have learned as our ruling class has clarified what the Catholic position on abortion has been ordered to become. Now the Fourth Amendment has joined the list of obsolete rights under our Living Constitution, as our Dear Leader and the IRS have claimed a right to read email without a warrant. The far left disgusts me.

He’s ‘wrong,’ by design. This is all intentional - part of the long-term programming of the citizenry to believe that the Second Amendment was created to ensure our right to shoot squirrels and mallards. In 50 years, once most private land has been consumed by development and the feds have declared all public lands off-limit to firearms, hunting will itself be outlawed. That, in turn, will give ‘them’ the excuse they need to ban the last type of gun we’re allowed to own - the shotgun that Uncle Joe so enthusiastically endorses (and which endorsement is also part of the programming).

I wish someone would ask him if he’d volunteer to go alone to some Tennessee mountain man’s house and tell him he’s there to take his guns.

In an ironic, twisted way, Joe Plugs might have a point.

As a huge James Bond fan in the Sixties, I couldn’t afford an Aston-Martin, but I was able to afford a 7.65mm Walther PPK, same as in the Connery films. Still have it.

But if you enjoy owning guns just for the pleasure of collecting them, what’s so bitterclinger about that?

Here’s a translation of a 17th Century German woodcut entitled “The Gun Nut”:

I’m an upright citizen,
Can’t stand the smell of powder, even.
Yet I own all kinds of weapons,
Bringing me but few laudations.
Because I know not how to use them,
Just see that rust does not suffuse them.

I agree. Some enjoy driving their Ferraris, others enjoy the feel of a particular gun while target shooting. I fail to see why either group should be deprived of pleasures that harm no one. (Except Liberals whose minds blow up at the thought of freedom.)

" “There’s a whole new sort of group of individuals now..."

Actually, he's knocking WOMEN. Wasn't there a 23% increase in women gun purchasers last year. Every report indicates these women are not hunters but feel "empowered" by their new purchase and skill.

It never ceases to amaze me to see how many lefties think that they’re expert psychologists. So expert, in fact, that they can diagnose people they’ve never met and wouldn’t deign to speak to.

I strongly suspect that their “expertise” comes from the gentleman’s C they got in Freshman Psychology, which they took in the hopes of learning some Jedi mind tricks (or Jedi mind melds in Obama’s case) that help them get into girls’ pants.

Of course they’re all “avid lifelong hunters” too. It’s a wonder that there’s a game animal left alive anywhere in the country.

“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...

Here are my two reasons, Joltin' Joe:

1. A gun is a Great Equalizer. I hope I never have to use it against another human being, BUT...if it comes down to me and my family's lives, I will NOT hesitate to use it. And I KNOW how to use it!

2. I no longer expect Law Enforcement to be at my beck and call able to respond immediately to my need for them when I call 911. Though I will call them, I will not need to be at the mercy of criminals until - or if - they get there. See number 1.

You might not remember, but Yeltsin was Gorbachev’s Veep.
Funny thing, Gorbachev lives, or at least did live, in ‘Frisco, and ol’ Yeltsin is dead.

So, with all the wording that came from Yeltsin, as Veep, might just now be coming from Senile Joe, who is our Communist’s Veep.

This idea won't work for most Freepers because we're pro-life.

But some libertarian really ought to say this to the Democrats: “If we Republicans get out of your bedrooms, will you get out of our gun racks? Since you want minors under age 18 to get the Morning After Pill without a prescription, don't you agree that everybody 18 and older should be able to buy a gun without a permit?”

The look on the face of Democrats ought to be priceless when their “personal freedom” arguments get turned around on them.

Again, I'm pro-life. I think the government **SHOULD** care about basic morality and stopping abortion. But the liberal arguments on this matter are incredibly inconsistent and hypocritical.

It has been clinically proven that listening to biden speak or reading a quoted comment definitely destroys brain cells.

Love your tag line, btw.

These idiots in Washington have no clue as to how life works anymore. Biden continues to make inspid statements to show just how out of touch he is with most decent Americans.

What a jerk.

He’s also a draft-dodging SOB. While I was doing my little part in the SEA war games, this prick was doing everything in his power to get draft deferments. Here’s a brief history of the moron’s time in college, avoiding the draft.

“Biden attended the University of Delaware in Newark, where he was more interested in sports and socializing than in studying,[10] although his classmates were impressed by his cramming abilities.[15] He played halfback with the Blue Hens freshman football team.[14] In 1964, while on spring break in the Bahamas,[18] he met and began dating Neilia Hunter, who was from an affluent background in Skaneateles, New York, and who attended Syracuse University.[10][19] He told her that he aimed to become a Senator by the age of 30 and then President.[20] He dropped a junior year plan to play for the varsity football team as a defensive back, enabling him to spend more time visiting out of state with her.[14][21] He double majored in history and political science and graduated with a Bachelor of Arts in 1965,[22] ranking 506th of 688 in his class.[23]

He then entered Syracuse University College of Law (where he would be near her), receiving a half scholarship based on financial need with some additional assistance based in part upon academics.[24] By his own description he found law school to be “the biggest bore in the world” and pulled many all-nighters to get by.[15][25] During his first year there, he was accused of having plagiarized 5 of 15 pages of a law review article. Biden said it was inadvertent due to his not knowing the proper rules of citation, and he was permitted to retake the course after receiving an ‘F’ grade, which was subsequently dropped from his record.[25] He received his Juris Doctor in 1968,[26] graduating 76th of 85 in his class.[24] He was admitted to the Delaware Bar in 1969.[26]

Biden received five student draft deferments during this period, with the first coming in late 1963 and the last in early 1968, at the peak of the Vietnam War.[27] In April 1968, he was reclassified by the Selective Service System as not available for service due to having had asthma as a teenager”.
