Joe Biden says he’s counting on “legitimate news media” to push gun control package

Vice President Joe Biden thinks he and his gun control plan have been victimized by the media.

During a press conference on gun safety in Philadelphia on Monday, he asserted that certain media outlets were attempting to “misrepresent” the proposed assault weapons bans as unconstitutional.

“To be very blunt with you, we’re counting on all of you, the legitimate news media to cover these discussions because the truth is that times have changed,” Biden said.

Biden explained that this isn’t the first time in his political career he’s been ‘wrongfully’ attacked for proposing an assault weapons bans. According to Biden, when he ran for Senator, “a lot of money was spent saying I was taking away everyone’s shotgun.”

“Well, that’s a bunch of malarkey,” Biden concluded, trying to score points by using what is apparently his catchphrase now. “I know that’s a word that you’ve never heard before, although it’s now in the dictionary.”

The Vice President claimed the Obama administration’s gun control package doesn’t actually violate the Second Amendment.

“The social media that exists out there, the tragedies that have occurred, the Supreme Court decision affirming that its an individual right to bear arms — all give a lie to the argument that what we’re trying to do is somehow unconstitutional, or somehow goes after the legitimate right to own and bear arms and to hunt and protect yourselves,” Biden added.

    People better wake up and see what Obamas real plans and communist ideas are and what he wants too do to this country. Just research his feelings on his communist up bring and all of his parents and family and friends that are communist.. His mother was a founding member of the little red church on the hill , Hell his Banner of his face even reminds me of Stalin or Lenin’s political banners and portraits always shaded on the right side of their faces and surrounded by red ..
    Just research Obamas life long dislike of the Constitution and his ideas to improve on that..
    Obama is a plain clothes Communist pure and simple go read his book Dreams of my father and you will quickly understand why hew had Winston Churchill’s bust removed on day one.. And you will have a better idea for his plans for use as a free people..

    Communist Run under the cover of Dem party not all but-
    1. Why the push to disarm Citizens
    2. Why the attacks on truth and massive lies.
    3. Why the efforts to stop Media like Fox news etc ..
    4. Why the push for power to rule Citizens not serve as
    elected members once voted into office?
    -are bad but some have lost their way!

    • Peter Kuttler says:

      Disarm? So you don’t consider a shotgun for example as a weapon. You need assault weapons right? To defend against who? An army? In this case why not allow some more powerful weapons? I would like a rocket launcher please ? Why is this communist government restricting my freedoms? So silly.
