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.”
