Biden Compares Gun Control
to Car Air Bags: ´We´re
Saving Lives´

Cybercast News Service, by Fred Lucas

Posted By:KarenJ1, 1/10/2013 6:29:04 PM

Vice President Joe Biden on Thursday compared restrictions on guns to auto safety regulations such as air bags, by saying neither the gun nor the auto industries wanted regulations to save lives. “Well they didn’t want to have air bags. Well, guess what? We have air bags. We’re saving lives,” Biden told reporters before a meeting with several stakeholders on the gun-control issue, as he plans to craft a set of proposals for President Barack Obama by Tuesday, Jan. 15. The proposals are expected to include a renewed ban on so-called assault weapons, and beefed-up background checks.

Comments:
What a complete moron he is. He really needs a Guardian.

We didn’t want the government to spend more money than they took in. Well, guess what? They did spend more. We’re going broke!

It is truly frightening that someone as embicillic as Joe Biden is considered worthy of promulgating proposals that deal with the rights of free men/women. That he is on the street is proof of a need to reexamine this nation´s mental health failures.

I´m listening to Mark Levin right now. He is pointing out how Government has killed millions and millions of people. They justify their actions by claiming they are "helping".
Banning DDT has killed millions..there is no justification in banning DDT..
CAFE standards call for smaller, lighter cars and this has killed 46,000 people.
Banning guns will lead to millions of deaths, if We the People allow it.

Beg to differ. Call Eric Holder, Joe.

Most of the statistics #4 mentioned are already available to the government. Why don´t they just check Chicago´s figures? They know how many crimes are committed with illegal guns. That´s what over 20,000 gun laws were supposed to cure. How well has that worked out?

There are some good points made in the comments after this article.

I like the observation that cars now need airbags in part due to the CAFE standards imposed by the government. Also that the right to bear arms is not comparable to the right to have an airbag in your car. And as to the government compiling stats on guns used in crimes, who trusts them to do this after F&F?

Mr. Biden is a huge reason I no longer respect the office, not the man. The man has demeaned the office to such a point that it is not worthy of respect.

The irrational gun control zealots ignore the lives saved by guns, appropriately called the, ´equalizers,´ in self-defense from predators. Pres. Reagan´s principle of, ´´Peace through Strength,´´ actually works, which is why Colt named his Single Action Army revolver, ´´The Peacemaker.´´ This principle applies to self-defense by individuals under attack by aggressors as well as countries under attack by barbarians.

The main reason for the rise in shootings in America is the growth of the underground economy and the gangs who are it´s enforcers. The main reason why there are school shootings is the phenominon of copy cat murders, which is fueled by all the attention that the press flaunts of such tragic events. The more our politicians make headlines on these murders, the more likely there will be copy cats.

FTA: Vice-President Biden asks, “How many weapons used are trafficked weapons? Are weapons used in gang warfare in our major cities -- are they legally purchased or are they purchased through straw men?"

You should answer your own questions re Operation Fast and Furious, Mr. Biden.

Vice-President Biden is the quintessential ´air-bag´ in this fight and why anyone would believe that they could have a serious meeting with him is mystifying, at best. It makes me sick that the Democrats/Progressives/Liberals are politically dancing on the graves of those precious departed children. Their faux concern is disgusting. Shame on all of them.

Lastly, Vice-President Biden and his family are protected by fully armed Secret Service contingents 24 hours a day, every day. That (along with his hippy-dippy mental state) should disqualify him (and all of his Administration, government, and media colleagues) from promoting his end goal of seizing the legal firearms of the American people. He´s a hypocrite - they all are - every last one of them.

What they are afraid to calculate is the number of lives saved by an armed citizenry. They suppress, with a willing media, any mention of an armed citizen, even an off-duty officer, interrupting a robbery, a kidnapping, or general mayhem. They know this defeats their argument so they suppress any good news about an armed citizen.

The FBI is probing past legal work done by Texas gubernatorial candidate Wendy Davis, according to a report her Republican opponent’s campaign calls a “bombshell.” The Dallas Morning News reported Friday that documents “related to Sen. Wendy Davis’ work as a lawyer for the North Texas Tollway Authority are part of an FBI inquiry of the agency.” The news outlet said it’s unclear how much this investigation revolves around Davis, the Democratic nominee for governor. “It’s not clear whether Davis’ work for the tollway authority is a focus of the FBI or only part of the material collected in connection

Researchers at Princeton and Northwestern universities have pored over 1,800 US policies and concluded that America is an oligarchy. Instead of looking out for the majority of the country’s citizens, the US government is ruled by the interests of the rich and the powerful, they found. No great surprises there, then. But the government is not the only American power whose motivations need to be rigourously examined. Some 2,400 miles away from Washington, in Silicon Valley, Google is aggressively gaining power with little to keep it in check. It has cosied up to governments around the world so effectively that its chairman,

Steve Lynch is a Democratic Rep. from Massachusetts who doesn’t hesitate to buck the party line from a centrist point of view, and to speak openly about problems in the party and with party positions. Lynch ran for Senate to fill John Kerry’s seat, but lost in the primary to now-Senator Ed Markey. Lynch recently was interviewed by The Boston Herald about upcoming Obamacare problems and how devastating they will be for Democrats. That runs contrary to cut current news cycle Democratic spin that (allegedly) meeting sign up goals means electoral problems related to Obamacare are over. U.S. Rep. Stephen Lynch, the

Then-Sens. Joe Biden and John Kerry were both opposed to Hillary Clinton’s 1993 health-care reform program, according to documents released by the Clinton presidential library. Clinton marked a handwritten “No” beside Biden’s name on Clinton’s list of Capitol Hill lawmakers that she needed to win over for her universal health care law, known as the “Clinton health plan” or “Hillarycare,” to pass. John Kerry, meanwhile, was marked with a “Probably not.” “Hillarycare” ended up dying in the Democratic-controlled Senate in 1994 without coming to a floor vote. As vice president, Biden has been a loyal supporter of the Obama administration’s

Wayne Crews of the Competitive Enterprise Institute and Alexis de Tocqueville, author of the classic Democracy in America, were born in different times and places. But the French aristocrat and American think tanker have the measure of the federal behemoth in the age of Obama. Writing in 1835, Tocqueville eloquently predicted how it would function, while Crews today supplies in his annual compilation of federal rules and regulations, “10,000 Commandments,” the hard numbers that describe the behemoth´s contemporary reach and costs. It is always worthwhile to revisit de Tocqueville’s description of what he called the

Prominent Washington correspondents are accusing President Obama and his aides of knowingly stretching the truth on issues like the so-called women´s pay gap just to create controversy and keep issues -- and the president -- relevant. Washington Post columnist Ruth Marcus kicked off the attack last week when she blasted as “demagoguery” the administration´s tactics during the pay gap debate. “The level of hyperbole -- actually, of demagoguery -- that Democrats have engaged in here is revolting,” she wrote. CBS White House Correspondent Major Garrett then weighed in this week in his National Journal

President Obama addressed the White House press corps today, announcing that with the final numbers in, Obamacare´s exchanges have attracted eight million sign-ups -- 35 percent of whom are "under the age of 35," he said. Several elements of his comments were misleading: (1) At first blush, the 35 percent stat is both significant and impressive. As recently as last month, the share of "young invincibles" signing up for plans was struggling in the 25 percent range, far short of the actuarial target of nearly 40 percent. A leap into the mid-30´s, while still shy of the goal, would constitute a major step, and would bode well for the risk pools'

It’s the stuff of Westerns: a showdown on the desert plains, the big bad government against an underdog farmer. Though the story has only grabbed national headlines in the past several days, rancher Cliven Bundy has illegally grazed cattle on the Nevada land surrounding his farm for over 20 years. He hasn’t paid grazing fees since 1993, and refuses to renew the necessary grazing permit.(Snip)Rather than using the avenues and pathways presented to him, Bundy has staunchly declared his own law and allegiances. Unfortunately, reality doesn’t work this way. If only it did—we could rebel for paying stupid taxes, refuse to

A group of seven multiracial Washington and Lee University (W&L) students are demanding the school remove all Confederate flags from campus and "acknowledge" General Robert E. Lee´s "dishonorable side." According to the Roanoke Times, "seven multiracial students, calling themselves ´The Committee,´" have also demanded the school "acknowledge and apologize for participating in chattel slavery." They want recognition of "Martin Luther King Jr. Day on the undergraduate campus" and an end to "neo-Confederates" marching across campus "to the Lee Chapel on Lee-Jackson Day." The students say they will "engage in civil disobedience" if their demands are not met by September 1st. They added: "The

The White House is going to war with another fox — and this time, it’s personal. The Wall Street Journal reports that a red fox has been causing chaos around the White House, tripping security alarms, digging up Michelle’s garden and distracting the president from his duties. The Secret Service won’t give any details about how often the fox trips the White House’s obviously sophisticated security alarms, but rest assured, officials say, they’re watching. President Obama was apparently “stunned” to see the fox roaming freely down the oft-photographed White House colonnade, home to the world’s shortest, but most dramatic, outdoor strolls.

To "honor the dignity and work of immigrants," Democratic House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi helps Bishop Marc Andrus wash the feet of two children Thursday at Saint John the Evangelist Episcopal Church in San Francisco. Pelosi also used the occasion to talk about passing HR15 - bipartisan immigration legislation that her office says would "reduce the deficit by nearly $1 trillion, secure our borders, unite our families, protect our workers and provide an earned pathway to citizenship." The Democratic leader´s ceremony coincides with Pope Francis´ similar ceremony in Rome to mark Holy Week.

Imagine a vendor on the National Mall, selling burgers and dogs, who hasn’t paid his rent in 20 years. He refuses to recognize his landlord, the National Park Service, as a legitimate authority. Every court has ruled against him, and fines have piled up. What’s more, the effluents from his food cart are having a detrimental effect on the spring grass in the capital. Would an armed posse come to his defense, aiming their guns at the park police? Would the lawbreaker get prime airtime on Fox News, breathless updates in the Drudge Report, a sympathetic ear from Tea Party Republicans?
