Outrageous! Joe Biden Says “Consensus Emerging” on Banning Guns (Video)

You just knew this was going to happen…
After holding several meetings with anti-gun activists, gun manufacturers, the NRA, Wal-Mart… Joe Biden declared yesterday that there was a “consensus emerging” on banning guns.

You know whenever Democrats say “consensus” you’re about to get screwed over.

Now that the kabuki theater is over – Joe Biden told reporters there is a consensus to ban guns in America.
The AP reported:

Pledging swift action to curb gun violence, Vice President Joe Biden says he will deliver new proposals to President Barack Obama by next Tuesday.

Biden said Thursday that while he had not finalized his recommendations, a consensus was emerging over banning assault weapons and high-capacity ammunition magazines as well as tightening background checks.

Some of those measures are likely to face opposition from some pro-gun groups, most notably the National Rifle Association. A representative from the NRA met with Biden Thursday afternoon and, in a statement, suggested the group was unlikely to be a willing partner.

“We will not allow law-abiding gun owners to be blamed for the acts of criminals and madmen,” the group said in a statement at the end of a 95-minute meeting.

Obama, after the horrific shooting of school children in Newtown, Conn., appointed Biden to lead a task force on preventing gun violence. He set a late January deadline for recommendations, which he pledged to act on swiftly.

The vice president said Thursday that while no recommendations would eliminate all future mass shootings, “there has got to be some common ground, to not solve every problem but diminish the probability.”

The White House knew they were going to ban guns before they even held their talks.

Reminds me of the tactics used to pass Obamacare. Over 80% of Americans were satisfied with their healthcare when the Progressives declared the consensus was that people wanted Obamacare. I agree with Rush, the Dems have had their proposed bill written for years — they’ve just been waiting for an emergency like this to implement. Their motto is “No crisis can be wasted.”

    Barry and the gang could care less about the children of Newtown or anywhere else. They just see this as an opportunity to advance their agenda to enslave We the People and they know they need an unarmed citizenry to carry this out. Well, it’s not going to happen.

    Hapless Joe can take his consensus and put it where the sun don’t shine. We are armed and have the means to communicate sans the internet bud, so keep that in mind when you try to come for our guns, especially in the red states.

    I see Barry has now armed security for life thanks to our esteemed members of Congress. Way to go guys. You know, there is no reason on this earth why former presidents cannot pay for their own security once they leave office. This is outrageous and just one more needless expense borne by the beleagured taxpayer.

    if the shtf, the first targets of the patriot militia should be the people in the urban voting precincts who didn’t cast one vote for reducing the government leviathan. if the marxist head of the teachers union can call for death of the rich, i can call for death of the drones. 100% effectiveness in reducing low information social justice types en masse.

    Here in Illinois last week when they tried to ban pump shot guns and 80% of the handguns, the response was so overwhelming that the democrats wouldn’t even vote on it. They were getting calls ever 2 seconds. The majority of the people want guns but that will not stop the radical left from just lying and the press will run with it.

    Obama Opposed Gun Ban Exception to Defend One’s Home

    by Keith Koffler on January 11, 2013, 9:58 am

    As a state senator in Illinois, President Obama opposed legislation providing an exception to handgun restrictions if the weapon was used in the defense of one’s home.

    Obama’s vote would have maintained the status quo, which made it a violation of municipal gun ban law to use a firearm to save your own life in your own home. But the bill was passed anyway without his support.

    The vote is a sign of how committed Obama may be to strict gun control measures.

    The Illinois vote is hardly ancient history, having occurred in 2004 as Obama was running for election to the U.S. Senate. In opposing the measure, Obama lined up well to the left of the mainstream, as the Illinois Senate included 32 Democrats to 26 Republicans but approved the bill by an overwhelming margin and subsequently overrode a veto by then-Gov. Rod Blagojevich.

    Obama did not participate in the veto override, which occurred in November 2004, likely after Obama had resigned his state Senate seat in order to prepare for his new role in the U.S. Senate.

    The Illinois legislation was passed after a man who shot a burglar in his home was fined $750 by his town for disobeying its handgun ban. The absurdity and injustice of the situation doesn’t seem to have made much of an impression on Obama.

    Just eight years earlier, in 1996, Obama answered “Yes” to a survey question asking whether he would support state legislation to “ban the manufacture, sale and possession of handguns.” The Obama 2008 presidential campaign claimed the form had been filled out by an aide who mischaracterized Obama’s position, even though Obama’s handwriting was found on survey.

    Plugs Biden is a barely sentient idiot. He probably thinks a consensus is used to count prison inmates. He should limit himself to one syllable words that he can comprehend, like “er” and “duh.”

    The country is in the verge of a civil war and doesn’t want one. However, at some point the people are going to have to fight back before they find themselves in Bill Ayers’ re-education extermination camps.

    I could see us arriving here 30 years ago. And here we are.

  • The Battle of Athens (also called the McMinn County War) was a rebellion led by citizens in Athens and Etowah, Tennessee, U.S., against the local government in August 1946. The citizens, including some World War II veterans, accused the local officials of political corruption and voter intimidation. The event is sometimes cited by firearms ownership advocates as an example of the value of the Second Amendment in combating tyranny.


  • bigL

    Notice how they give Congress cover? No bills, no votes,no roll-calls. Taxation with out representation. Exec orders being used to spend money. No votes on money issues. All these plans need enabling legislaton and a vote of funds. Three are new, NEW issues and can’t, imo, be stashed in a presidential stash fund, which if it exists needs to be scotched.Once the congress hasto put their name on some of these issues everything slows down.Notice how fast everything has to be done by the donks, Huge bills are un read. Thanks GOP.
    Changes to the B O R should be done thru the amendment process from the congrss as a bill passed and sent to the states for ratification.
    The Republicans are derelict in their duties.The GOP is not doing its job…

    Is it time to show old Joe a true consensus…when do we march on Washington?

  • babeola

    Friend bought a 22 squirrel rifle LAST NOVEMBER and was stunned with the ATF forms asked to check boxes “semi automatic weapon?” and “Detachable clip?” NEVER BEFORE had these questions been asked about gun purchased on ATF forms.

    SO THERE IS NO DOUBT WHATSOEVER THAT THIS HAS BEEN PLANNED FOR A LONG TIME. It takes the government a while to change forms. They have been contemplating this for a while now.

    There are places all over the south where men & women have been training for this very war for a long time.. They are called “Compounds”, though I do not agree with some of the things they do, I do agree with their training to fight against the government… These men & women have been stock piling guns, ammo, grenades, rocket launchers & are VERY good marksmen… They are ruthless & will not give up for nothing.. They have been waiting on this day & they think it’s coming real soon…and I do to!!!!

  • AuntieMadder

    JayO: “I agree with Rush, the Dems have had their proposed bill written for years — they’ve just been waiting for an emergency like this to implement.”

    Emergency like what? There is no emergency. There’s no crisis, either, really. It’s not as if 20-something kids and their teachers are being held hostage; they’re gone and nothing will bring them back. It’s more like what Breitbart’s Shapiro told Piers Morgan, and I paraphrase, they’re standing on the graves of the children from Sandy Hook.

  • JKB

    Wait a minute, the Progs have been arguing that arming teachers or putting guards in the schools wouldn’t solve the problem because they might not be in the classroom attacked. Therefore, we shouldn’t consider that solution. Now Biden says we should go for solutions that reduce probabilities. You know what’s scary, Biden is turning out to be one of the better thinkers on the Left.

    Oh, and it wasn’t just Progs. Remember Gov. Christie opposed guards because the shooter might come in a side door instead of the front. BTW, he’s so done as a presidential candidate for that stupid remark.

    a “consensus” means that we as the MINORITY are going to overrule the MAJORITY. This is called Apartheid. This is how you ruin everything and take away everyone’s rights.

    What is emerging and from what I have seen this is their playbook, War of Women, Contraception, Obamacare, Coal regulations, if one liberal gets through then it is the law.

    Biden is now playing the same game, consensus word, majority feel, it is the same song and dance and it is getting sickening to those of us who Believe in our Constitutional Right. Who once had some inkling of faith in our Government but now we are fighting Government EVERY STEP OF THE WAY.

    These evil bastards know exactly what they’re doing. While every piece of news the past few weeks is about gun control, we the people haven’t been paying attention to the economic and StalinCare BS that has been emerging. People can only absorb just so much crap before they throw up their hands. This is exactly what they want. These bastards learned in 2010 when StalinCare was passed and the Tea Party emerged that only one Marxist crisis at a time allowed the Patriots to focus. Now we are looking at several and it is overwhelming. (Calling Saul Alinsky!)
    BTW and a little off topic; ever notice that a majority of the Marxist gun control type who want to “save the children” are the very types who march and scream that a woman should have the right to an abortion?

  • Paddy

    Lets assume that Obama is well on his way to establishing a dictatorship. At some point after guns are outlawed and confiscation begins, civil disorder will occur as planned. Obama will declare martial law, suspend Congress and the courts. But, to what end?

    His ploy is dependent upon local, state and federal law enforcement agencies remaining loyal and willing to aid and abet Obama. I doubt that they will. There will be blood shed in our streets, and the police will act to quell it. But, I believe they will act to protect the public without supporting Obama.

    Then there is the military. Will they stand by or mutiny and/or take over by a coup d’etat to remove Obama? I believe that most Americans love their country and are patriotic. They will not allow Obama to become president for life. In fact, his term of office may end prematurely.

    We are in jeopardy of loosing our country, but we won’t let it happen. New leaders will emerge to lead the effort to purge our tyrant in making.

    When Economy Collapse Cities will become War Zone.

  • Look-Out

    From #52’s link (thank you Lim Lynn) —

    In recent years there have been massive cuts to the police budget in Chicago due to financial difficulties. At the same time, gang activity has dramatically increased in the city.

    As a result, Chicago has become known for murders and violence. The murder rate in Chicago was about 17 percent higher in 2012 than it was in 2011, and Chicago is now considered to be “the deadliest global city”.

    If you can believe it, the number of murders in Chicago during 2012 was roughly equivalent to the number of murders in the entire country of Japan during 2012.

    And the primary reason for all of this violence in Chicago is the gangs. As I have written about previously, there are only about 200 police officers assigned to Chicago’s Gang Enforcement Unit. It is their job to handle the estimated 100,000 gang members living in the city.

    Approximately 80 percent of all murders and shootings in the city of Chicago are gang-related, and as the gangs continue to grow in size the violence in the city is going to get even worse. If Barack Obama wants to do something about violence in America, perhaps he should start with his home city.

    This is not a time to take away the ability of law-abiding American families to defend themselves. Instead, people need to put even more emphasis on self-defense as police forces all over the country are cut back.

    Just recently, the city attorney of San Bernardino, California told citizens living there to “lock their doors and load their guns” because the police force in that city is being cut back again.

    And that is good advice. As the economy continues to decline and as millions more Americans fall into poverty, the violence is going to get even worse.

    Gangs are a major cause of violence, but the failing economies in our major cities will cause more cutbacks in police forces. Citizens will have to fend for themselves against those who will break the law in desperate times.

    Chicago was just one of a number of cities in the article, but it highlights how this POtuS and his crew haved failed. They know what they’re doing. They’d like their “civilian armies” patrolling our streets, keeping us all in line.

    No, I think knowing there are plenty of mothers (like the one in the article) who’ll blast an intruder with some gunfire will serve to dampen the desires of the majority of criminals.

    But along with fighting for our 2nd Amendment rights, demands that the gangs in our cities and future terrorists training in rural camps be ELIMINATED/LOCKED UP/DEPORTED ought to be at the top of our TO-DO LISTS.

    They’re being IGNORED…smells like they’re on Barry’s team to me.
