Biden Promotes Beto For Gun Control

"In a surprise moment at the end of his Dallas rally on the eve of Super Tuesday, former Vice President Joe Biden called former Texas Rep. Beto O'Rourke up to the stage -- and vowed to put O'Rourke, who has said the government should forcibly seize assault rifles from Americans, in charge of gun-control efforts.

 

Also at the rally, Biden accepted the endorsements of onetime rivals Pete Buttigieg and Amy Klobuchar, as the Democratic party's moderate wing rallied behind Biden to challenge anti-establishment frontrunner and self-described "democratic socialist" Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt.

"Ladies and gentlemen, tomorrow, March 3, 2020, I will be casting my ballot for Joe Biden," O'Rourke announced to applause at the rally's conclusion.

 

O'Rourke called President Trump an "existential threat" to "free and fair elections," and urged rallygoers to view Biden as the "antithesis of Donald Trump," someone who is "decent, kind, caring, and empathetic."

 

Biden, taking the microphone after O'Rourke spoke, then announced, "I want to make something clear -- I'm gonna guarantee you, this is not the last you're seeing of this guy -- you're gonna take care of the gun problem with me, you're gonna be the one who leads this effort. I'm counting on you, I'm counting on you, we need you badly."

I have a friend who argues we should allow anyone to purchase any sort of firearm they want but pay enough tax to pay for a month long cruise for the sane people.  By the time we all got back, the problem would solve itself.

Good to hear GOPers threatening armed resistence to gun control- it so fits their political philosophy.

 

No need to seize any guns - just do two things:

 

Thing One: Make semi-automatic weapons that can fire more than 8 times without reloading illegal, and provide a tax write-off for having your guns and magazines modified for compliance with the law. After one year for everyone to "get compliant", If you get caught with an illegal weapon/clip, you lose the gun, a lot of money and spend a year in jail.

 

 

Thing Two: Make manufactures liable for damage done by their semi-automatic weapons.

 

Modifications would largely be DIY - remove/block the passageway that allowes the gas from the exploding cartrige to rack the mechanism to fire again when the trigger is pulled. For the magazines/clips, install a metal bar/rod that reduces the space available for ammo to 8 rounds and superglue it in place. I've got an ancient (1904) shotgun that has a wooden dowel for just this purpose, so it's hardly a new idea.

Beta was right on target when he said, "O'Rourke called President Trump an "existential threat" to "free and fair elections," and urged rallygoers to view Biden as the "antithesis of Donald Trump," someone who is "decent, kind, caring, and empathetic."

Fox News, I mean the Fox Propaganda network, quoted what Joe Biden actually said about Beto. Joe said, "I'm gonna guarantee you, this is not the last you're seeing of this guy, you're gonna take care of the gun problem with me, you're gonna be the one who leads this effort."

 

Did Joe Biden say we're going to take away your guns? Of courses not! But that's what the Fox Propaganda network is trying to make their readers believe.

No, Joe didn't say that. Beto did. What is the gun problem that Biden is referring to that he wants Beto to take care of?
