Biden: Gun Owners - Like The Way It Feels...Like Driving a Ferrari'

Apr 11, 2013 | Posted by: roboblogger | Full story: WABC-AM New York

Vice President Joe Biden Thursday morning said that the "cultural norm" about gun ownership has changed, arguing that many people buy guns, not for protection or hunting, but because "it's like driving a Ferrari." "It used to be we were dealing almost exclusively with hunters," Biden said on MSNBC.

I will trade you "one" of my ARs for a Ferrari.

If this country REALLY wants to do something about gun violence, ban ALL movies and video games depicting gun violence. Once I can no longer turn on my television, go to the video arcade or movie theater, or rent, or purchase, a video game showing gun violence, I will believe that this country REALLY wants to make a change. This is the root source of all the recent mass shootings. All the offenders were under the age of 30, making them part of the video game culture, or they are mentally unstable.
This is were the idiots that commit mass shooting offenses become desensitized to the impact of their actions.

Most kids are more mature then you are.

You invite people to step on the first amendment to protect your second amendment rights ?

It does not work that way.

Dear VP Biden,
There has been significant gun reform already since Newtown........everyone has gone and bought a gun! Now that's "Reform". Well done sir. My personal opinion regarding your comments are this; some people like to fondle their guns but most gun owners just like that they can walk with confidence. Legal guns end thuggery. Try it!- Sincerely, Free Men

Even-so, the prospect of ANYBODY taking his place is too tantalizing to ignore...better than a sailor's dream.
Biden is dumber than the smartest Kardashian, but I'd take him in a 'heartbeat'; at-least he needs and depends on outside advice, unlike the manturian candidate.

I see you get my point, so why don't you leave my gun alone and go play your video game.

You referenced the First Amendment if we were to ban gun violence on TV or in games and movies, as I was defending my Second Amendment right to bear arms. If we start picking and choosing which civil liberties we are going to limit, where does it stop?

My point, while probably valid, was meant to be sarcastic because it would violate our First Amendment rights.
