…well…except for his home.
You just know if Slow Joe Biden is involved with a bill there must be something cockeyed about it.
Remember this is the same Joe Biden that had some real spiffy advice for his Missus Jill Biden concerning safety at their secluded home:
We live in an area that’s wooded and somewhat secluded. I said “Jill, if there’s ever a problem, just walk out on the balcony here, walk out, put that double barrel shotgun and fire two blasts outside the house. I promise you whoever’s coming in is not gonna!”
You don’t need an AR-15. It’s harder to aim. It’s harder to use. And in fact you don’t need 30 rounds to protect yourself!
Buy a shotgun! Buy a shotgun!
Alrighty then. The two shotgun blasts in the air ploy. Girl Scouts selling cookies everywhere beware!
That’s just the tip of the Biden iceberg of folksy wisdom.
So yea, Biden was the sponsor of Senate Bill 3266 “Crime Control Act of 1990,” which included the “Gun-Free School Zones Act of 1990.”
That bill was signed into law by President George H.W. Bush with many misgivings. In fact he said:
I am also disturbed by provisions in S. 3266 that unnecessarily constrain the discretion of State and local governments.
…Most egregiously, section 1702 inappropriately overrides legitimate State firearms laws with a new and unnecessary Federal law. The policies reflected in these provisions could legitimately be adopted by the States, but they should not be imposed on the States by the Congress.
Take a look at Section 1702:
Interesting that all of these mass shootings are taking place at gun-free zones aka killing zones.
Even crazed jihadis or mentally ill maniacs choose their targets. And the best targets are those that won’t shoot back. Plain and simple.
Right now we’re hearing all sorts of nonsense about limiting gun ownership. We have enough laws on the books now — probably more than enough — to handle the problem, if they were enforced.
But here’s the catch: criminals and thugs don’t follow the law. They don’t follow the law when they buy a firearm, and they certainly don’t follow the law when they use those guns for violent and ruthless purposes.
So don’t believe the gun-grabbers who say they just want to ban ARs. They only want to ban high capacity mags.
The Bloombergs and Feinsteins want to start with that. But the prize is eradicating the Second Amendment and total control. The grieving children just happen to be convenient props, pawns in their game to render patriots defenseless.
Just say no to more firearms laws!
