Joe Biden Tries To Pass Himself Off as Pro Gun

I’ve previously discussed how Joe Biden, the running mate of Barack Obama, is one of the most anti gun rights politicians in America.  Biden has called gun owners mentally unstable simply because they wish to own a gun (see this video clip), and has pushed for a variety of draconian gun bans.  Joe Biden is also highly rated by the leading anti gun rights groups.  Now, Biden is trying to pass himself off as a pro gun rights guy in order to get votes from gun owners:

At an annual fish fry with members of the United Mine Workers in Castlewood, Va., Biden claimed that he supported gun rights, and would not let Obama take his trapshooting shotgun.  In making this statement, he was attempting to cover up his anti gun rights record, as well as Obama’s similar anti gun rights record.  The fact is that while Obama and Biden may not want to ban the particular sporting gun that Biden mentioned, they both have supported or written laws that would have banned my trapshooting gun.  Obama has also gone on record as wanting to ban my target practice rifle, along with every other semi automatic firearm.  Both Obama and Biden have supported bans on guns suitable for self defense, and Obama voted to allow the prosecution of people who defend themselves against criminals in their own home.  In the wake of the Supreme Court’s landmark D.C. v Heller decision, Biden authored another anti gun bill that would ban guns suitable for self defense.  In short, Obama and Biden would be the most anti gun president and vice president in American history – and Joe Biden is being disingenuous when he tries to pass himself and Obama off as supporters of gun rights.
