Biden and Bloomberg Team Up to Again Pressure Congress on Guns

As the U.S. Congress debates gun control legislation, two of the countries’ leading advocates on the issue–Vice President Joe Biden and Mayor Michael Bloomberg–held a City Hall press conference today to pressure federal lawmakers to have enough “courage” to vote in favor of the bill when it hits the floor. Standing behind victims’ family members from last year’s massacre at a Newtown, Connecticut elementary school, Mr. Biden and Mr. Bloomberg argued the measures being proposed are neither controversial or unconstitutional.  

“There’s not one single thing being proposed–not one, not one , not one, not one–that infringes on anyone’s Second Amendment constitutional right. Not one,” Mr. Biden said. “Three months ago, a deranged man walked into Sandy Hook Elementary School with a weapon of war. That’s what he walked in with–a weapon of war. That weapon of war has no place on American streets and taking it off American streets has no impact on one’s constitutional right to own a weapon.”

“There’s no doubt that requiring background checks for all gun sales saves lives and there’s no doubt that the American people support it,” Mr. Bloomberg said. ” The only question is whether Congress will have the courage to do the same thing or if they will allow more innocent people, including innocent children, to be gunned down. It has been 97 days since Newtown, in that time, we estimate that more than 3,000 Americans have been murdered with guns. Almost none of the victims generated national headlines, but each murder was a tragedy for the victim’s family and for the community. If Congress does nothing, another 12,000 people will be murdered with guns this year alone. We just cannot allow that to happen.”

The pair also praised each other’s advocacy on the gun control issue.

“There’s been no better person to be leading this effort in Washington than Vice President Biden,” Mr. Bloomberg said, labeling Mr. Biden “a stand-up guy.”

For his part, Mr. Biden extolled Mr. Bloomberg’s organized lobbying efforts, declaring, “There has been no support that has been more consequential than the support coming from Mayor Bloomberg. It has been immense. It is organized, it is committed and it is consequential.”

    I don’t care if there are 5 Sandy Hook’s per day (that actually happen the way they’re trying to claim it did), I shall never give up my tools of self defense from government creeps who currently hold power in Washington.

  2. skipnclair barker says:

    Its not their right to take away our rights to defend ourselves or are families. This is a god given right given to men of all nations and of all races. Who do they think they are, that they can take away something that is God given? Our forefathers knew this, and that along with fighting a war to gain independence from the homo King georgie da 3rd ,they knew how crucial the 2nd amendment was. That along with helping future generations to fight tyranny as they did is the other reason. So to anyone politician gun grabber liberal or who or whatever, do not even think you have the right to infringe on what The Lord God Almighty gave man and was also given by our forefathers not only with their wisdom but with the blood of those that fell then, and continue to fall to preserve all rights granted by God and the Constitution. Perhaps some should stand in the middle of a national cemetery in this nation ,and reflect before they dare think of taking away any rights. And like D replied above I don’t care if there are 5 sandy hooks a day false flag or not these rights shall not be taken away or altered. They are given By God and the blood of millions. And to the elected and police who took an oath to uphold these rights and speak of ways to infringe on them you are traitors, should be removed from office, tried and shot.

    Vote for another gun control law and see how fast you’re out of a job. We’re keeping score.

    Bloomberg & Biden are Zionists and belong in the Knessett.

  6. Apostle says:

    Desperation on the cusp of madness, Bloomberg and Biden both know that the US Financial System is about to collapse, and the last thing these 2 criminals want is an armed populace ready to take the guilty to justice. When the SHTF both Biden and Bloomberg will have their heavily armed bodyguards defending themselves, and want the DHS to cleanup the rest of the masses that refuse to be disarmed. Funny how these 2 shills can interupt the Constitution for everyone.

  7. Strayhorse says:

    bIDEN AND bLOOMBERG’S RIGHTS TO FREE SPEECH RESULTED FROM THE USE OF FIREARMS NOT JUST IN WAR BUT BECAUSE AMERICANS DARE TO STAND AND DIE FOR LIBERTY AND THE U.S. CONSTITUTION. ALL TYPES OF FIREARMS WERE USED TO DO THIS. NOT JUST MILITARY STYLE. WE STOPPED A WAR BY USING X2 NUCLEAR BOMBS – WHAT’CHA GONNA STOP TERRORISM WITH – WORDS? 10+ YEARS AND AMERICA HASN’T TERRORISM. JUST LIBERTY.

  8. WTH says:

    Bloomberg, especially, appears to be in need of some serious counseling for his excessive and apparent need to control people and their rights to be able to choose anything from the size of their soft drinks to whether or not they feel they need protection in the form of a gun.
