Biden heading to Virginia to push gun control

Good luck with that Mr BFD. Virginia’s House, Senate, Governor, AG and Lt Governor are all Republican. Might want to take your road show elsewhere.

WASHINGTON (AP) — Vice President Joe Biden is taking the White House’s campaign for gun control on the road to Virginia.

Biden plans a roundtable discussion Friday in Richmond with experts who worked on gun safety following the 2007 shooting at Virginia Tech.

President Barack Obama wants Congress to require background checks for all gun sales and ban both military-style assault weapons and high-capacity ammunition magazines. The president concedes passage will be difficult, but he also will travel to push the plan. His destinations have yet to be announced.

Virginia has an avidly pro-gun tradition, but lawmakers have been debating a bill to require that private sellers conduct criminal background checks on buyers at gun shows. The current law only requires dealers to conduct the checks.

Oh and I got another message from Virginia gun owners and one liberal gun owner: Molon Labe Uncle Joe.

    If Congress does what Obama wants, Congress will “infringe” on our right to keep and bear arms. That is, they, and anyone who assists them, will be in violation of the highest law in our land. I hope that few or none of us will give up anything, and that we will band together quickly enough and firmly enough to stop the infringement everywhere and always.

      Well here’s a little something on what New Yorkers are planning….

      • sDee

        great to hear. Great.

      • Reb Biker

        Let them lock us all up. At least we’ll be in good company. We can talk about guns!

        • Orangeone

          Welcome Reb Biker, not certain I’ve seen you at TRS! In case you haven’t noticed, we cling to our guns and bibles here and are PROUD OF IT! I look forward to your great posts!!!!

          • Reb Biker

            Thank you, Orangeone. I usually post on Weasel Zippers, CBS Chicago, and Clash Daily. I check the videos here every day, but haven’t posted much. I’ll try to hang around more often.

            • Orangeone

              Please do, you add great insight!

    • Ollie Winslow

      I’ll stand AGAINST them.

      • Reb Biker

        I’ll stand beside YOU!

      Abraham Lincoln offered Robert E. Lee control of the US Army. The only catch was he’d have to kill his own family members. General Lee chose to resign his commission and lead the Confederate Army. He is one of the finest Virginian’s that ever lived.

      The Democraps may soon be asking our cops and soldiers to make the exact same decision, and directly violate the Constitution which they swore to protect. I can’t see our own relatives coming to their relatives homes and taking their guns. And knowing us since childhood, they know that they’d have to kill many of us to do so. I just don’t see it happening. I see another Civil War coming first, and I don’t really see that happening, either.

        Here’s the link to the list of Sheriff’s who have outright said they will not enforce. This is a great site, the update continually.

        And here is the link from the Milwaukee Sheriff that told his residents to not wait for 9-1-1, rather buy guns 🙂 Go Scott Walker’s state!!! The MN news stations went nuts :):):)

        I just have to provide a few quotes from the article because they sum it up (BTW, he is a great sheriff and AA so haha Barky):

        ‘Milwaukee County Sheriff David A. Clarke Jr. set off alarm bells Friday with a radio spot some view as a call for citizens to arm themselves.

        In the radio ad, Clarke tells residents personal safety isn’t a spectator sport anymore, and that “I need you in the game.”

        “With officers laid off and furloughed, simply calling 911 and waiting is no longer your best option,” Clarke intones.

        “You could beg for mercy from a violent criminal, hide under the bed, or you can fight back.”

        Clarke urges listeners to take a firearm safety course and handle a firearm “so you can defend yourself until we get there.”

        “You have a duty to protect yourself and your family. We’re partners now. Can I count on you?”‘

      • Orangeone

        Thank you for that history, I was unaware of that. I have lots of reservations on Lincoln and this just sealed it for me. Barky is getting some of his tyrannical ideas from Lincoln. Time for Lincoln’s birthday to no longer be a holiday and for Robert E Lee’s to become one 🙂

    An open “note” to past and present members of Law Enforcement, the military, and the many shadow groups that may be armed because of actions taken in and around the White House: if you are ordered or asked to assist in carrying out Obama’s odious plans, especially for “gun control,” and you obey or agree, you will pit yourselves against several tens of millions of legal and law abiding gun owning American patriots. Think twice.

  • To keep and bear arms, is our NATURAL RIGHT, and no Congress, no President, no Comittee, no City, no County, no man, has any authority to deny it to us. As to the “type” of weapon I have an inalienable right to posses, that type is the type “needed” to meet the emergency, whether is burglary, home invasion, or some military type coming at me in violation of my natural rights. The Second Ammendment does NOT GRANT us the right to keep and bear arms, it simply codifies the protection of what is ours by NATURAL RIGHT.

    • sDee

      Precisely! The Second Amendment only restricts the Federal Government from infringing upon that right.

      The inalienable right remains even if they repeal the Second Amendment.

      • wraith67

        It would be difficult to get two thirds of the states on board with a repeal – more likely is ratifying that UN Small Arms Treaty and trying to use that as a fig leaf for Euro-trash law and policies.

        • sDee

          Sure but we need to have the mind set that any law to suppress it, bypass it, or even it repeal does not take away our right and responsibility to arm ourselves.

          Americans can never register, turn in nor surrender our weapons if we expect to remain free.

    Fight to end gun violence is key to defending democracy
    In a January 18 article, People’s World, an official publication of the Communist Party USA (CPUSA), declared that “the ability to live free from the fear or threat of gun violence is a fundamental democratic right — one that far supercedes any so-called personal gun rights allegedly contained in the Second Amendment.”

    How to Ban Guns: A step by step, long term process
    A December 21 article for the Daily Kos is one of the candid admissions against interest by the Left that the real end goal is a total monopoly of gun ownership by the government.

    • sDee

      It was clear that the person who wrote that kos article is not planning on ever having to register nor give up their own guns – just ours.

    Ironic that this is Virginia’s motto Sic Semper Tyrannus

    Oh Virginia – will you stand up to the Tyrant now?

    • Reb Biker

      Yes, WE will! I’ll bet Virginia is one of the most heavily armed states in the nation, with the possible exception of Texas. We Virginians loves our military, we loves our guns, and we have two words for anyone that wants to take them… MOLON LABE!!!

  • ryanomaniac

    This whole thing is awesome. I really mean that. There are a ton of democrats that love guns. Tons. Of course most Republicans and conservatives do also. If Obama keeps beating this hornets nest and sends out this campaign apparatus to push gun control the Democrats will get cleaned out in 2014. I mean demolished. They think they are advertising a great idea but they’re really advertising that they want their ass kicked. They’re just too stupid to know it yet.

    Pride comes before the fall.

  • Dear Mr. Vice President,

    That’s a bunch of malarky!

  • Joe,

    You’re old school; out numbered and out witted by us “bitter clingers”.

    Ditto to the punk on Pennsyvania Avenue

  • madnessofjack

    Ruger has a “take action” page to send a message to our representatives that gun owners take their gun rights seriously and wont stand idly by as the “progressives” seek to cripple the 2nd amendment.

    Please help and spread this around

    Back off, Biden.

    Drudge links to a well reasoned article by David Mamet.

    Gun Laws and the Fools of Chelm

    • Rocco11

      Love Mamet, his book “The Secret Knowledge” is a must read.

      • sDee

        That is where I’d always hoped the liberals and hippies I’d grown up with would also have come. Standing by my side. The “in your face, upside the head” realization that their mistrust of government and power was indeed well placed. That yes, the media was truly a global controlled entity.

        Instead those liberals and democrats have embraced the totalitarianism of Marx, Mao and Muhammed, blinded by their own fears and rationalizations.

    Obama and Biden are both fools…

  • c4pfan

    I think it has to do with keeping this in the news cycle.

  • sjmom

    All the administration is doing is angering their opponents and it is as if they really want a civil war. If they keep it up they may get their wish.

    • TimeForAnarchy

      Where do I enlist???

  • Orangeone

    Laser for the focus on jobs must need new batteries……

  • wraith67

    I’m sure that Joe will find some people with PhDs after their names to say something to the effect that gun ownership is a mental health issue (ie, if you own one, there’s something wrong with you) and that eliminating high cap magazines and ARs will be the only “reasonable” thing that should be done.

    • sDee

      That is one to be very careful of. Mental health profession is primarily liberal.

  • BHliberty

    I heard that Obama’s first stop will be in Nevada! Imagine that, Harry Reid’s state! Ugh!

  • martha chandler

    Lord, I hate this old fart.

  • Sober_Thinking

    Biden remains a clown…

  • Biden is obviously wasting his time. even if they pass it we will not comply

    • TimeForAnarchy

      Let’s see BozoJoe go to south west VA, in the mountain country, and sell his anti-gun agenda.

      And no, I won’t comply either.

  • Dictator Obama and his “cling to their guns and religion”, ignorant statement. He’s not a President of all the people, that’s for dam- sure.

  • Obama and his minions are forcing a showdown now. They want Americans to choose between Washington and the Second Amendment. Trust me, the Second Amendment will win, especially in places like Virginia, West Virginia, Texas, and most of the other states in the union, except perhaps in places like New York or California. Connecticut already has some of the toughest gun laws in the country. And how did that work out for them at that school house? The problem is the killers, NOT the guns. Defend the schools properly and maybe you can avoid more of those types of shootings. After all, many large urban public schools already HAVE armed security on campus. So why is this such a bad idea? If we can spend the money to protect banks, we can spend the money to protect our kids properly.

  • TimeForAnarchy

    Can BozoJoe even find Virginia?

    • Orangeone

      If he eventually arrives, it will be long after the paid attendees have taken their departure.

  • Ollie Winslow

    I will defend my 2nd Amendment rights until Kingdom come. Obama,Biden,Feindstein,and all the treasonous gun grabbers can GO TO HELL.

  • Guppymonster

    Any attempt by obama to impose gun control upon america would constitute an impeachable offense on his part not to mention the fact that no american is required to honor any law which violates the Constituion or their constitutional rights. Obama is organizing (after all he is a community organizer) individuals to stage marches or other theatrical events urging gun control which his lackeys in the press will duly report upon. The fact remains that sixty-five percent of all americans would defy any gun ban imposed upon them. Americans are never obligated to obey any law which violates the Constitution and no state may impose such laws either other than for a short while.

  • Reb Biker

    If he brings his traveling Stupid Show here to Virginia, he’s barking up the wrong tree. Gunpowder flows through our veins. Many here even reload our own cartridges. That’s like going to a kennel and telling the dogs not to eat ham bones. That boy is dumb as a rock.
