Read this exchange between our national embarrassment and a questioner at Joe’s Square Table-in-a-Roundtable discussion.
[a]… reader questioned how a “ban on guns” would work when prohibition of narcotics failed to keep them off the streets.
Biden responded curtly.
“There is no ban on guns,” he said. “No one’s banning the gun. No one’s taking my shotguns. I have two shotguns at home. They’re in a – in a cabinet. They’re locked. There is a ammunition there as well. No one is going to come and take my gun. No one’s going to take anyone’s gun. We’re talking about a background check.”
Continuing with added sarcasm, he asked whether the drug analogy even made sense:
“Are you suggesting [...] we just legalize all drugs? Is that what you’re suggesting? That would go real well in Parents magazine.” he said. “Let’s talk about everybody being able to – no matter what your age, go out and be able to purchase cocaine. What do you think about that idea? Look, these comparisons are not appropriate, quite frankly.”
Nice try, Joe. (Or are you even trying?)
The person’s premise is that narcotics are illegal and criminals still get them. So how is an “assault weapon” ban going to keep them out of the hands of criminals?
It’s quite appropriate, frankly. Now answer the damn question, you big dope.
Oh, and by the way, the glasses aren’t working as an affectation. Perhaps a mortar board and a monocle would keep people from thinking you’re a retard. Maybe a nice pipe. But not that soap bubble one you use in the tub.
