Biden warns anti-gun control lawmakers will pay a price
AFP ^ | February 21, 2013

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.

More importantly, Biteme has called on lawmakers to ignore or abandon the Constitution.

Biden might have our lawmakers by the family jewels.

But he does not own me and mine. If the lawmaker I helped send to congress fails the constitution, his jewels need not fear Biden.........

This can be a good thing - listen to slo-joe and find a new job after the next election. This will be the 94 election all over again - a good thing for the country. Thanks for the help plugs...

Joey forgets that in recent years it’s the anti-gun pols that have been paying the price at the polls, at least in normal America.
Slow Joe. Try to keep up, Joe.

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

Violent people use whatever tools they can get their hands on to commit their crimes. The only defense against them is an equal or greater use of force using whatever tool is required to deter the Criminal.

Remember what Odumbo said to his Supporters regarding his Political opponents, “they bring a knife, you bring a gun”.

Hey Biden, why don’t you meet me on the green in front of The Armory in Old New Castle so I can hear your demands or dictates?

Careful now, if his protection squad doesn’t come along he might bring a double barreled shotgun. He advises in that regard to his poor wife. [Can you imagine the hell of being married to a total idiot like him? Poor lady should reach sainthood ...]

Joe was flying ‘Government Airlines’ one day and decided he wanted to fly the plane.
Over the pilot’s objections he slides into the co-pilot’s seat. “I want to land this baby!” so he pushed the wheel forward.
At the last minute the pilot wrested control of the aircraft and manages to land safely.
“Nobody hurt!” says the ‘tard. “Man, but that runway was short. And wide!”

The Ruling Class thinks they can subvert the citizen’s right to self protection. More and more Americans are getting the picture of the Ruling Class as power hungry narcissists. It is only when that Americans will have reached the tipping point with them. When Obamacare hits in 2014 may be that time.

It is good for our side every time Crazy Joe opens his mouth. His spouts such stupid nonsense that even the Marxists blush. His recent rant about getting a shot gun instead of an AR-15 shows that, not only is he completely ignorant about firearms, his advice to his wife is criminally negligent also. In a just society, Biden would have been declared the village idiot and assigned some menial tasks like cleaning porta-potties at a county park just to give him something useful to do.

measures to stem gun violence

A call for national prayer and repentance. Protection for the unborn. Support for two (opposite gendered)parent families. Finally realizining that pornogrophy is not a first ammendment issue. Allowing prayer in schools.

There of lots of non legislative measures to pursue.

Vice President Joe Biden warned Thursday that US politicians would pay a price if they refuse to back measures to stem gun violence.

Why do the cowardly Democrats always punish the innocent? What are they proposing to keep guns out of hands of criminals? Or, is it too easy, to take away the guns of law abiding taxpayers? And then pretend that the "problem" is solved?

I pray that Joe Biden and his Democrat colleagues are given the ability to connect the dots, and take responsible actions to keep guns away from criminals, while respecting the second amendment.

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).

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.
