Time again

Weekly nag time--email the Congresscritters.  Call the Congresscritters, do the same with your state and local ones too if they are starting to make anti-civil right noises.  Keep on them, because they are keeping on us.

I'll give the man credit for chutzpah

Or, perhaps Joe just had a few drinkie-winkies before opening his mouth.  At any rate, our esteemed excuse for a Vice-President (and one of two factors, the other being Harry Reid, who forces me to wish the current holder of the Presidency continued good health), attended yet another event meant to gin up "concern" and "compassion" and yet more useless laws that abridge our civil rights.  And yet again, he shot off his mouth.

“Common sense facts are these assault weapons are unnecessary and dangerous weapons that put our law enforcement personnel at risk,” Biden said. “You guys know a lot of departments around the country. I’ve been working with the police agencies for 35 years. I am going to say something outrageous: You’ve had no better friend over the last 35 years than me."

Joe, not even addressing the continuing idiocy of the made-up term "assault weapon", if the damn things are so dangerous and unnecessary, explain to me why police departments across the US are buying the things in droves--at least in states where an increasingly long list of gun manufacturers will still sell them to the government?  I mean, since they couldn't possible be effective tools for the defense of those officers when they find themselves in a bad situation, then why would they want them?  Beacuse they are all black and scarey?

And yeah, you were right--what you said was outrageous. At least he wasn't offering foolish advice on home defense again.
