Joe Biden: “Assault Weapons” Are Hardly Ever Used in Crimes, So We Should Ban Them

Maybe we should make this a daily segment, “Words of Wisdom with Joe Biden”.

In today’s Words of Wisdom with Joe Biden, Joe tries to answer a question about why we should ban “assault weapons” (as defined by the proposed 2013 Assault Weapons legislation) when those weapons account for less than 1% of all homicides in the US.

Joe’s answer basically boils down to the fact that he doesn’t think these weapons have any valid self defense or sporting purpose so we should ban them, despite their obvious absence in violent crime.

I’m going to write myself into circles if I try to summarize his comments anymore, so I’ll just let you watch the video below to hear all of Joe’s “Words of Wisdom”.
