    Vice President Joe Biden, who is heading up the President’s task force on gun control proposals, announced Tuesday that he would be meeting this week with the National Rifle Association, among other groups.

    And his timing is just a bit suspect; the day before meeting with the NRA, Biden will be meeting with gun control organizations and shooting victims. Presumably, his welcome for the NRA will be somewhat less hearty.

    The NRA, under heavy public pressure thanks to the White House’s bully tactics after the Sandy Hook massacre, said it would visit the White House to “hear what they have to say.”

    This is all a dog and pony show, of course. The Washington Post has already reported that the administration wants a broad swath of gun legislation; Democratic Congresspeople proposed eight separate gun bills on the first day of the term; and Mayor Thomas Menino of Boston, who co-chairs Mayors Against Illegal Guns with nanny Mayor Michael Bloomberg, said that Biden promised him action before the end of January.

    So why is the NRA visiting? Because the White House has given them no other public relations choice. President Obama has singled the group out for criticism. The White House’s media lackeys, including David Gregory of NBC News, have grilled the NRA, asking them to back off their organization’s stated mission.

    I don't much care for the NRA, but I suspect they will tear Biden a new asshole. If that's possible since he's already the biggest fucking asshole there is.

    You can take heart in two items in this...

    1. Anti-gunners have no argument other than the pure emotional one. A failed basis for discussion, and;

    2. The Pro-Constitution crowd gets to go second. That means their legitimate arguments will be the lasting ones in the mind of the V.P.

    In either case, the current regime does not have the needed votes to do away with the Second Amendment, and any weapons ban is challenged on grounds of Constitutionality.

    Joe Biden, while at times too quick with his mouth, could tear any ultra right on this Board a new butt hole. The NRA reps will be very, very non-attack mode with the VP. Also to consider: the administration does not want to do away with the 2nd Amendment, but Heller 1(F) gives it and SCOTUS the cover to regulate certain types of weapons.

    So...the Vice President, tasked with coming up with legislative suggestions, is talking to all sides of the gun control debate. And, this is a bad thing? How and why?

    If he DIDN'T talk with the NRA about this, you'd bitch about that too.

    NRA better be prepared!!!!
    Obama and Biden's plan is to PR them to death. They will pull out gun victim after gun victim to gather sympathy for their cause. Obama and Biden will tell story after story about how guns killed innocent children. They will cry and weep for the victims. Hugging family members and letting them demand more gun control.
    Then point to the NRA and say how can you be so cold hearted and not feel sympathy for these people.

    Then one miss place word out of the mouth of the NRA will be jumped on with contentment. They will characterize them as evil, blood thirsty, closer minded individuals that seek to destroy society.

    The NRA and gun right activist better be prepared to play this game or kiss your guns rights good bye.

    This is all a knee jerk reaction.

    There are loads of gun laws on the books. The Clowns in DC are trying to show how concerned they are with deaths by gun. If those kids had been killed with a knife or a hammer you'd be seeing laws for the use of both.

    Knee jerk plus.

    Jesus. What a load of horseshit. Guns don't kill people. People kill people.

    Don't see anyone advocating to remove all nutjobs and killers from society and putting laws on the books to allow LEO to remove them even if they haven't done anything.

    Guns don't kill people. PEOPLE kill people.

    The second Ammendmant will still be around when the Clowns in DC are gone.
