The First Time I’ve Ever Been Glad to Hear Joe Biden’s Name

We’ve seen the strategy before. The Luftwaffe softens the victim with an intensive bombing campaign, before Panzer divisions roll in to conquer new territory on behalf of collectivist authoritarianism. Likewise, our media pummels the enemy with hysterical propaganda, before Obama comes in for the kill with new regulations. A 24/7 media campaign devoted to driving home the point that a gun rather than an evil lunatic committed the Sandy Hook killings made it obvious that the Moonbat Messiah would soon attack the fundamental liberty that supports all the others: the right to bear arms. But now for the first good news since before the November election:

President Barack Obama on Wednesday will tap Vice President Joe Biden to spearhead White House efforts to mold new gun and mental health policies following the Newtown shootings, a choice that could prove crucial to getting changes through Congress.

A previous Joke Biden task was to police wasteful “stimulus” spending so as to get Washington’s fiscal house in order. Hopefully he will be equally successful at curtailing our precious Second Amendment liberties.

Joke Biden investigates an “assault weapon.”

    “Say it isn’t So, Joe!”

    The Marxist-in-Chief put Joe Hair-Plugs in charge just in case it all goes sideways and he doesn’t get what he wants, which is of course, British-style gun control. You can bet Joe is just the figure-head for this Gestapo-style commission. Left on his own, by the time Joe got finished, the govt. would be buying every one of us a new gun, just as it did for the Mexican drug cartels.

    Actually, this goes beyound guns. In reality, it’s another major battle in the culture war we’ve been fighting with the Left for generations. And, they are winning! With the MSM using fear and hysteria and playing on the emotions of the nation, and with guttless politicians changing their opinions on our gun laws just to make themselves look good, this may turn out to be the most serious and devastating attack the 2nd Amendment has had to endure in a very long time. The Left knows they have the nation’s sympathy on their side and they will go for broke.

    Choo Choo Joe is going to ride over there on his bullet train. Oh whoops bullet is verboten hatespeak comrades!

  4. karasukanzaemon says:

    Dave, I hope you are right. On the other hand, all we have seen so far – not unlike the Fiscal Cliff debacle – is everybody on “our side” (there’s a misnomer for ya) falling all over themselves to throw our rights and freedoms away. Meanwhile, Obama sits back behind his media shield and lets the other side negotiate against itself.

  5. Bob Roberts says:

    This is a clear sign the obamunists know these efforts will fail. At least if they try to do them as a package, the gun part should never make it through, though proper tweaks of mental health issues may have a chance. When the gun part fails, not if, they have their fall guy – the former “Dumbest Man in the U.S. Senate”, Joe Biden.

  6. Joe says:

    What is it about a squirt gun that gives the dumbest man in Washington a woody?

  7. Ghost of FA Hayek says:

    I believe joke Biden serves a specific purpose for the left
    First, remember that before the gun grabbing left can get it’s way, ALL legal gun owners must be demonized in the eyes of the public at large, much in the same way the wealthy are by way of class envy rhetoric in order to get to this wrong headed “tax the rich” and gimme my free sh** (to hell with the economy) high the nation is on right now.
    People are still to cognoscente (using the term loosely) to buy the lefts arguments that some deer hunter in Minnesota, or a suburbanite from Texas trying to protect his home are at any moment ready to “snap” and go shoot up a school.
    But that is exactly what the left hopes for them to believe, and Joke Biden (with his proclivity to parrot the stupid things he hears) is the ice breaker.

  8. Dupree says:

    I’m listening to Obama blather right now. He quickly talked about the “gun” control agenda, and has since been going on and on about the fiscal cliff diversion. No one in the media has yet asked one question about the gun control initiative. Like it’s not even an issue!

  9. Comrade J says:

    I propose moron-control in government.

    All the federal executive and legislative branch employees must surrender their batches immediately. Clown-in-chief included.

  10. Tax Slave says:

    Joe’s in charge of mental health policy? The inmates REALLY ARE running the asylum.

  11. Ghost of FA Hayek says:

    People who argue for the banning of arms ask for automatic rule by the young, the strong, and the many, and that’s the exact opposite of a civilized society. A mugger, even an armed one, can only make a successful living in a society where the state has granted him a force monopoly.

  12. Bill T says:

    “The Federal Bureau of Investigation recorded more than 16.8 million background checks for gun purchases in 2012, the highest number since the FBI began publishing the data in 1998. A record number of requests for background checks for gun buyers went through on Black Friday in November, the FBI reported at the time, in part because of fears that President Barack Obama and other lawmakers would tighten gun control laws.”

  13. Bill T says:

    The official Chinese government news agency, Xinhua, has demanded the US immediately adopt stricter gun control measures to reduce the number of firearms the US populace is permitted to possess.

  14. Stickman says:

    um, before you get too happy remember ol’Joe is the wonderful guy who brought us that beacon of truth and fairness VAWA…

    If he is even half as successful as he was with that steaming pile of legislation. we will all be lucky if we can even play shoot-em-up video games in 4 years.

  15. Mr Evilwrench says:

    Well, yes sir, Mr. China sir. I wonder if they have their invasion and occupation plans drawn up yet, and how much slick willy and barky consulted on them.

    I’m pretty big and intimidating, and could probably turn someone’s face inside out once, but my sciatic nerve issues are such that sometimes I can’t walk at all. Without my EDC I’m vulnerable to any 5 year old girl that’s determined enough. Anybody comes for mine gets shot in the face.

  16. Mr Evilwrench says:

    Sorry, hope I’ve canceled my italic tag.

  17. Ghost of FA Hayek says:

    “The Federal Bureau of Investigation recorded more than 16.8 million background checks for gun purchases in 2012,
    Bill T
    So if we are to follow leftist doctrine to the letter, we must now assume these government background checks have cleared those now LEGAL gun buyers to purchase LEGAL firearms, and cannot be questioned.
    Just as we shall not question the EPA
    The Justice Department
    The State Department
    Ect ect ect
    The government has officially given it’s okie dokie.
    Only government can assure us our safety, right ?

    So where is the problem ?

  18. asswipee says:

    ok, an update from southern ohio.

    ammo sales – very high…a friend tells me ups/fed ex is making double digit deliveries PER DAY.

    others tell me that local gun shoppes are SWAPPED…many ladies, btw.

    survival instinct…a natural and hard-wired reaction, we’ve got about 2 million years of local adaption (evolution)…we won’t go easily.

    but, i’ve got a little cash…going to venture forth and procure…

    if you’d like to hear the results, say so…

  19. Clingtomyguns says:

    As much a nincompoop Biden may appear and ultimately be in his appointment as a media diversion (see below how Obama will likely implement gun control through the rogue ATF, without Congressional oversight), he is dangerous precisely because he has a long history of being a ardent anti-Second Amendment advocate:

    “Vice President Joe Biden is a long time gun-control supporter. He was a major architect of Violent Crime Control and Law Enforcement Act of 1994 which included major curbs on assault weapons, not only barring the manufacturing of 19 different brands of firearms, but also outlawing the possession of newly manufactured high-capacity magazines. That law expired in 2004, and so far, efforts at re-introduction have failed. The National Rifle Association has given him an “F” on gun rights. Biden also voted against a law that prohibits lawsuits designed to bankrupt law-abiding firearm manufacturers.”

    Basically Biden, useful dolt he is for Obama, is the Obama Regime’s version Joseph Goebells, who quoted: “The most brilliant propagandist technique will yield no success unless one fundamental principle is borne in mind constantly – it must confine itself to a few points and repeat them over and over.” As you can imagine with Biden speaking to sympathetic and emotion sheeple: “We’ve got to keep our kids safe folks, the children, the children, we can’t have any more tragedies like Newtown …. It’s just these assault weapons we’ve got to get off the streets for our kids sake, not sporting guns, quack, quack, quack.”

    While Biden squaks, behind the scenes Obama’s Gestapo, the BATFE, will be using hamfisted harrassment power grab to drive gun and ammo dealers and out of business, which is already occurring:

    “A Houston firearms shop owner who prefers not to be named told me that a U.S. president can exert strong gun-control influence by simply dictating new instructions to the BAFTE which are then imposed as “directives” upon Federal Firearms Licensed (FFL) merchants. FFL-holders are subjected to periodic audits, and those who receive too many write-ups for “willful” non-compliance can be regulated out of business. Incidentally, this process was not sanctioned as part of the 1968 Gun Control Act that Congress passed after Bobby Kennedy was assassinated.”

    “BATFE has assumed broad discretion in determining special features of firearms that can be imported or sold which far exceed stringent restrictions established by existing federal laws. For example, using the unconstitutional and oft-abused “sporting purposes” test as justification.

    Consider, for example, precedents established with Obama’s choice of Andrew Traver who has worked to terminate civilian ownership of so-called “assault rifles” (a prejudicially meaningless gun term) to head the BATFE. He collaborated with Chicago NBC TV in a story that was supposedly about semi-automatic “assault weapons” (one trigger pull, one single “bang”)…but which disingenuously showed highly regulated fully automatic machine guns being fired.

    The scariest appointment consequences by far involve the federal judiciary, most particularly those which will influence future Supreme Court interpretations of constitutional protections recognized by the Second Amendment. Imagine more justices in the philosophical mold of the president’s most recent addition, Elana Kagan, a gun-unfriendly attorney who participated in writing the 1998 Clinton White House executive order banning imports of 58 types of “semiautomatic assault rifles”.

    Then there’s Sonia Sotomayor, an Obama nominee who joined Justice Stephen Breyer’s dissenting opinion in the narrow 5-4 McDonald v. City of Chicago decision which clarified that Second Amendment rights apply to states.

    An Obama reelection presents an extreme risk of replacing at least one of five Supreme Court justices who have vindicated Second Amendment protections in the precarious Heller and McDonald decisions. If this were to happen, our right to bear arms might become a lost historical memory for future oppressed generations to read about.

    On the 30th anniversary of the assassination attempt on President Ronald Reagan, Jim Brady who sustained a debilitating head wound in the incident and his Wife Sarah met with White House press secretary Jay Carney to push for a ban on “large magazines”. According to Sarah Brady, the president dropped by and brought up the issue of gun control “to fill us in that it was very much on his agenda”. She reported: I just want you to know that we are working on it. We have to go through a few processes, but under the radar.”

    Gun owners might be well-advised to remember another off-the-record conversation in Seoul, Korea…one where our president assured Russian President Dmitry Medvedev that “This is my last election. After my election I have more flexibility.” He continued: “On all these issues, but particularly missile defense…this can be solved, but it’s important to give me space.”

    And that’s how this Regime will regulate your guns, and soon your healthcare, out of typical citizens hand, and into theirs. The fix has been in for removing guns from private ownership by Obama since he got elected, just as the Nazi’s used their methods to purge the Jews of their guns, before loading them into freight cars to concentration camps. Now that he’s been reelected, Obama no longer needs to hide his plans.

  20. […] Biden, Vice President of the USA, headed up Comrade Obama’s gun task force in the hysteria following the Newtown shootings. What would happen if someone were to behave as if […]
