Biden warns anti-gun control lawmakers will pay a price

Just miles from the site of the Newtown school massacre, Vice President Joe Biden warned Thursday that US politicians would pay a price if they refuse to back measures to stem gun violence.

Biden said in Danbury, Connecticut that there had been a change in American politics which made it less risky for lawmakers to back the kind of legislation the White House is pushing Congress to pass.

"What I say to my colleagues who will watch this and listen to this, I say to you if you're concerned about your political survival, you should be concerned about the survival of our children," Biden said.

"And guess what? I believe the price to be paid politically will be to those who refuse to act, who refuse to step forward, because America has changed on this issue," Biden said.

"You should all know the American people are with us. You should all know there's a moral price to be paid for inaction," Biden said, around 10 miles (16 kilometers) from Newtown.

My representative knows who he represents and it isn't Joe Biden or Barack Obama. He represents the voters of OH District 5. This is the Ohio voting district that voted to arm and train school custodians a week after Newtown. I'm pretty sure he knows how his constituency feels about the matter and given that my district neighbors district 8, John Boehner's district, I'm pretty confident that his constituency isn't that much different than mine which leads me to believe that this assault weapon ban BS is going nowhere.

Furthermore, given the astronomical increase in guns and ammo sales over the past several months, I'm equally confident that it won't be the Republican party paying the price for this anti-second amendment agenda especially when we consider that plenty of rural democrats are just as enthusiastic about firearms as any republican. The same can be said for democratic leaning minorities. This is not a wedge issue and isn't going to become one no matter how much uncle Joe tries to make it so.

“You should all know the American people are with us.”

This is like Obama saying “The vast majority of NRA members agree with my proposals to limit guns”. Pure get-on-our-bandwagon garbage.

Hey, Joe-bama, show us ONE example of a member of Congress who was diselected because he or she opposed gun control.

Just one!

It is a waste of time to think that the dems care about gun violence.

What it really is about is removing the ability of the American people to resist the coming tyranny the dems intend to impose on this country.

That is it, that is what this gun grab is really all about.

“Dr.” Jill Biden is no rocket scientist, either. In her case “Ph.D”. really does stand for piled higher and deeper.

Look at it this way: when Biden became VP the only DC area school that would take her on faculty was NoVA Community College. The wife of the VP ...

Had someone once remark to me that the reason she wears those Frau Gestspo leather boots of hers is to get people to look at her. Since Joe is usually too busy looking at himself. It’s probably a good thing that she teaches at the college level ... If she’d taught high school she probably wouldve been caught beddiny the varsity football team within her first month teaching. And even despite the fact that Laz wouldn’t even hit it (well, probably not, anyway).

> What does Gun Control have to do with “stemming gun violence”?

Gun Control INCREASES Gun Violence, because it create a safe work environment for criminals.

All the while he worships at the altar of abortion. He has no moral compass so why should anyone with a conscience listen to him?

I remember when a woman running around with urine soaked pants, blowing a whistle and shooting a double barrel in the air would have been considered insane.

You are correct, and very soon it will be a criminal act to tell that truth openly. FEMA camps are real, and they really are built with a purpose in mind. They will not be used as alternate housing for the hood, either. Suburbia is much easier to herd onto transports dontchaknow.
