(The Hill) Vice President Biden said Monday that those who claimed the Obama administration was trying to take away guns from law-abiding citizens were spinning “a bunch of malarkey.”
“I know that’s a word you’ve never heard before, although it’s now in the dictionary,” Biden said at a roundtable discussion with law enforcement officers in Philadelphia. “That’s just simply not true. And 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 also pledged to bring the fight to rural areas, where instances of gun violence were less frequent than in cities and the tradition of gun ownership is strong. The vice president said he had read reports in a local newspaper that the administration had not done enough to reach out to rural voters.
“I’m coming, I’m coming,” Biden said. “The one thing I want to make clear is this is, this message of rational gun safety is a message that will be embraced by rural communities as well as urban communities simply because it makes sense.” Read more (if you dare)…
“I’m coming, I’m coming?” Uncle Joe makes himself sound like an extra from one of Mark Suben’s (aka Gus Thomas) old movies. Maybe all he and Barry really need is some time alone at an Idaho dude ranch, so they could relax and connect with their inner selves. Anybody willing to pitch in?
