    During a Google+ Hangout session, Vice President Joe Biden was asked about banning "assault weapons," despite the evidence that proves the majority of gun deaths are not the result of people using such weapons.

    According to Vice President Biden, this fact proves the weapons have little utility and should not be owned by the general public. A convenient catch-22: assault weapons should be banned because they're dangerous; if assault weapons aren't responsible for many deaths, then apparently people aren't using them and there should be no problem with banning such weapons.

    Regardless, this twisted logic does not answer the question proposed to him. If "assault weapons" are not responsible for the majority of gun deaths, why target them? It would make more sense to ban the guns that are being used in the majority of gun deaths.

    Well, if Breitbart says it - it must be true. Actually, I saw no proof in the article that Biden admitted that.

    This is an important point and I'm sure the NRA will make the most of it. In fact it could impede any hope Obama has of banning so-called "assault" weapons.

    They are already set to ban assault weapons. Now it's time to turn their attention to shotguns and then handguns. They have only just begun their attack on our right to bear arms. They aren't going to give up. Stay tuned.
