VP Biden Says Chicago-Area Democratic Primary Result Sends ‘Clear Unequivocal Signal’ To NRA And Politicians

Before I move away from the topic of firearms and gun rights, U.S. Vice President Joe Biden decided to weigh-in on the victory of pro-gun “control” candidate Robin Kelly in the U.S. Congressional 2nd District (Chicago south suburbs plus more) Democratic primary this past Tuesday. According to Reuters’ Roberta Rampton yesterday, Biden told a group of state attorney generals:

For the first time since Newtown, voters sent a clear unequivocal signal… The voters sent a message last night, not just to the NRA, but to the politicians all around the country. There will be a moral price as well as a political price to be paid for inaction.

I’m going to disagree with the VP here. I’d guess that many observers familiar with “The Chicago Way” interpreted the primary as once again demonstrating that race, gobs of money, and having the blessing of “The Machine” wins elections here in the Chicagoland area. And local politicians screaming about the need for more gun “control” is just one more attempt to distract the masses from the crappy economy and huge financial mess these guys have gotten us into ($9 billion in unpaid bills and a $96 billion pension funding gap in Illinois from what I read yesterday).

By the way, going back to that post I published last week about the Vice President answering gun “control” questions at a Parents magazine event and telling one Facebook user they didn’t need an AR-15 for self-defense, get a shotgun instead…

  1. The anti-gun crowd doesn’t realize they’re pressing their luck.

    Legally speaking, there’s been an uneasy peace for years regarding various laws on what guns you could have and where, but a straightforward reading of the 2nd clearly precludes even CCW permitting. Heller vs. DC already re-affirmed the obvious individual right; now it’s just up to someone to challenge this other nonsense and ALL gun laws applying to law abiding citizens go by the wayside.

    I can easily see the anti-gun crowd going too far with individual battles and costing themselves the entire war.

    I can easily see the anti-gun crowd going too far with individual battles and costing themselves the entire war.

    It seems to me that gun “control” supporters are using the strategy of “throw everything against the wall and see what sticks.” Like I mentioned in a recent post, I can’t help but think this approach might lead to political hara-kiri, not unlike what happened back in 1994. Come November 4, 2014, elections will be held for 33 out of 100 U.S. Senate seats and all 435 U.S. House seats. We’ll see what happens then.
