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

Cybercast News Service, by Fred Lucas

Original Article

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.

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?

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.

National security should serve policy objectives. It should not be a victim of political correctness. Politics should be kept especially far away from the practice of intelligence. Today´s decision by the NYPD to close the unit that was mapping Muslim communities in New York is very likely a product of political pressure. It is a decision that will make the city targeted in the largest terrorist attack in modern history less safe. I have gone on record in the past—on Al Jazeera, of all places—to explain why the program was a good idea and crucial to preventing terrorist plots in the future. In

Michael R. Bloomberg, making his first major political investment since leaving office, plans to spend $50 million this year building a nationwide grass-roots network to motivate voters who feel strongly about curbing gun violence, an organization he hopes can eventually outmuscle the National Rifle Association. Mr. Bloomberg, the former mayor of New York, said gun control advocates need to learn from the N.R.A. and punish those politicians who fail to support their agenda — even Democrats whose positions otherwise align with his own. “They say, ‘We don’t care. We’re going to go after you,’ ” he said of the N.R.A.

How do you ensure that you won’t be ostracized, denounced, or fired if you are a media celebrity, captain of industry, or high public official? For some, sexist banter is certainly no problem. Stand-up comedian Bill Maher called Sarah Palin a c–t and a tw-t, but suffered no ill consequences. David Letterman joked on air that Sarah Palin’s 14-year-old daughter had had sex with Alex Rodriguez during a New York Yankees game. There was no downside to that either. President Obama tosses around “sweetie” as he wishes. No problem with that. No one believes Barack could be condescending to women.

But the man who once dreamed of being a transformative leader in the Reagan mold is inspiring few of those young people to follow his lead.

The Bureau of Land Management has been charging him grazing fees since the early 1990s, which he has refused to pay. Further, BLM has issued orders limiting the area on which Bundy’s cows can

Although the Civil Rights Act, the landmark legislation which just reached its 50th anniversary, made great strides in desegregating the economy, economic discrimination is still widespread, and anti-discrimination legislation alone can never rectify the economic damage inflicted upon blacks by slavery and our Jim Crow apartheid regime. The Civil Rights Act was a mild reform, all things considered, but one conservatives fought with vigor and one many conservatives are still bitter about to this day. When the Civil Rights Act passed in 1964, the primary purpose was to root out discrimination in public accommodations (like hotels and movie theaters)

Toddlers show racial bias when picking playmates, a study reveals. They also take account of how fairly others behave. Researchers tested the reaction of white 15-month-olds as toys were distributed. Two white adults divided the toys, one equally and the other unequally. Seventy per cent of the toddlers chose to play with the researcher who distributed the toys fairly. But in a second test, when one researcher favoured a white recipient over an Asian one, they picked the ‘fair’ researcher less often, the journal Frontiers in Psychology reports.

Well, no. And yes. No — very few people in Washington, D.C., who work for the government have any idea what they would do if a 10-kiloton nuclear device exploded at the intersection of 16th and K
