During a Democratic Party fundraiser in California on Friday night, Vice President Joe Biden Mocks law-abiding gun owners. President Obama brought up gun regulation during a speech in Beverly Hills, California, saying that it is an important topic for his administration.
When he was running for governor of Delaware in the 1990s, Vice President Biden recalled what it was like to support gun control measures like banning some semi-automatic rifles and limiting ammunition magazine capacity. Joe Biden revealed that when gun owners criticized him for trying to take their firearms away, he would mock them for having high-capacity semiautomatic rifles.
“They’d say, ‘God darn, Joe, what the hell are you doing taking my gun away?” Biden recollected. “And I said, ‘Let me ask you a question.’ I said, ‘How many — when you go deer hunting, how many deer are wearing Kevlar vests?’”

“By the way, if you need 30, 40, 60, up to 100 rounds to fire,’ I said, ‘you’re a danger to yourself, man,” he continued.
As a gun owner, Biden made note of his possession of a shotgun and a rifle throughout his remarks. “I’m a gun owner. I own two shotguns. My son Beau passed away. He had another shotgun,” he said. “We used to like to skeet shoot. We weren’t hunters.”
Joe Biden also lashed out at Republicans who supported the idea of allowing teachers to keep guns in their classrooms. His wife, Jill Biden, is a teacher, and he warned the audience about its dangers of it.
“There’s a reason why the military takes so long to train somebody,” he said. “It’s not easy to pick up a rifle or a gun and blow somebody’s brains out in front.” According to Biden, the mere possession of a firearm makes the majority of gun owners more hazardous to themselves.
“More people get killed with their own gun in their home trying to stop a burglar than, in fact, any other cause.” He said. “Think about that. Because it’s hard to do. It’s a hard thing to do.” Stay tuned with us only on leedaily.com
