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 pricea 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 isnt 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 progressBiden 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.....

You are not alone in thinking that. Hope and prayer are fine but at some point we are going to reach a 1776 moment.
No doubt they have been scanning NSA files on those who voted against gun control...we will see next time around...there will be a next time, very soon I suspect.
You notice Bill Maher never calls Biden retarded?
I think you’re right.
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.
The junta is threatening congress.
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.
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.
I think the guys’ anuresym is back. The American public is not interested in gun control. Everyone knows it but these clowns just keep plugging away. It never ends.
With no due respect, FUJB.
The GOP needs to reach down, find their balls, and tell this JO off.
I will gladly give up my guns (the ones that weren’t lost in the boating accident) as soon as Biden’s security detail gives up theirs.
Shotgun Joe hasn’t been told that Newtown PD is swamped and back-logged with CT pistol permit applications.
Biden is an idiot with no respect or regard for the 2nd Amendment.
>> You notice Bill Maher never calls Biden retarded?
Of course. Maher never gives anyone (besides himself) TOO much credit. It’s just the way the a-hole is wired.
You know you are in trouble when you have to resort to making threats.
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.
