Joe Biden: I Pray For Another High Profile Victim to Push Gun Control Movement
Joe Biden just can’t stop putting his foot in his mouth.
This time, Biden basically said that what the gun control movement needs is another high profile victim to push its message of civilian disarmament.
According to the Washington Times,
Vice President Joseph R. Biden said Friday the nation needs another high-profile, respected spokesman for gun control who is able to convince fearful members of Congress to buck the National Rifle Association and other organizations and vote for firearms restrictions.
Speaking at a Washington memorial service for the late James Brady — former White House press secretary who was wounded in the March 1981 assassination attempt against President Reagan — Mr. Biden said the fight to stop gun violence must never end.
What we need is another Jim Brady, who has the skill and the ability to convince those who are afraid, who walks the halls of Congress, to step up and do what they know is right. One will come along. It will happen. I pray God it is sooner rather than later.
Biden also said 75% of the American people support new gun control measures. Wait, I thought that number was 90% according to this administration? Oh, we’re just making up random numbers as we go, got it.
According to Gallup’s (who no one is going to call a pro-gun polling service) historical data, the support for gun control is actually less than 50%, close to an all time low of 44%, down from 70%+ in the 1990’s.
