Biden warns Congress on gun reform: ‘You will pay a price’
Yahoo! News ^ | June 18, 2013 | Rachel Rose Hartman

Vice President Joe Biden on Tuesday, seeking to revive efforts to pass gun-reform legislation in Congress, warned lawmakers opposed to reform that Americans aren't on their side.

"The country has changed" since the deadly shootings at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Conn., Biden said during remarks delivered on Tuesday afternoon in the White House's South Court auditorium. Lawmakers "will pay a price—a political price ... for not getting engaged and dealing with gun safety."

Two months after the Senate failed to support the expansion of background checks for gun purchasers despite intense pressure from the administration, victims rights groups and others, the White House announced on Tuesday that the issue remains a top priority for the administration and its supporters in Congress and elsewhere.

"This fight isn’t over. Far from it," Biden said.

Before Biden's remarks, the White House, in an attempt to demonstrate commitment to the issue of reducing gun violence, announced on Tuesday that the administration has completed or made progress—Biden later described it as "major progress"—on 21 out of 23 executive actions. The actions were produced by a gun violence task force the vice president led after the Newtown shooting and were issued by President Barack Obama in January.....

He's right about that. Record firearms sales and the AR types were, at one point, nearly impossible to find. Be careful what change you wish for, Joe.

“I don’t have to listen to your phone calls to know what you’re doing. If I know every single phone call you’ve made, I’m able to determine every single person you talk to; I can get a pattern about your life that is very, very intrusive. The real question here is what do they do with this information that they collect that does not have anything to do with al-Qa’ida? ... But this idea that ... we’re going to trust the president and vice president of the United States that we’re doing the right thing — don’t count me in on that.” then-Senator Joe Biden in 2006

I suspect it's going to be the gun-grabbers on Biden's side of the aisle who will pay a price in 2014, but we'll see.

No, Mr. Biden. You are not proposing true gun reform.
You are proposing further denials and restrictions on American citizens’ constitutional right to bear arms.

You are going exactly in the wrong direction, and we reject it completely.

If you want to propose true gun reform, propose removing all the unconstitutional “applications” and “forms” and “regulations” that limit the American people’s free access to arms, and free possession of same.

Simple.
Turn yourself around 180 degrees and propose something legal, useful, and helpful to a free society where each citizen has his/her full constitutional liberties.

You can do it, Mr. Biden.
You really can.

Of course. Maher never gives anyone (besides himself) TOO much credit. It’s just the way the a-hole is wired.

Repeal NFA 34, GCA 68, and the Hughes Amendment in FOPA 86.

That would be completely, absolutely huge, and would encourage a lot of development of new weapons by private individuals. I don’t see anything wrong with a second John Browning popping up, or another Gene Stoner.

At some point we will need to get a message to "plugs" that there is no great groundswell for destroying gun owner rights. In fact, there's currently a groundswell underway for eliminating anti-knife and anti-sword laws!

The New Town CT experience seems to have heightened people's interest in SELF DEFENSE and making that as simple and easy as possible.

It's pretty clear the cops can't even protect third graders locked up in school ~ why we imagine they can protect the rest of us is a good question ~ and apparently the answer is they can't!
