White House Supports Biden's Shotgun Comments

Yesterday I wrote an article covering the comments made by Vice President Joe Biden during an interview with Parent's Magazine. What I didn't cover was the White House's support of Biden's comments. The White House press secretary Joe Carney told the press that Biden's comments were in line with their position on the Second Amendment and that the President fully agreed with the Vice President. In a complete dodge, Carney addressed the fact that Obama too felt American's wanting to excercise their Second Amendment right to protect their home do not need a military style rifle to do so, "a shotgun would be a logical choice."

What Carney did not address was the matter of irresponsibly firing a double barrel shotgun in the air, and the legality of such an action. This administration has proven time and time again just how out of touch they are with the American people, this case is no different.

I find it funny that the people making these "decisions" regarding what is best for us citizens are protected daily by secret service or body guards often times armed with the very weapons they are chastising. When they are ready and willing to provide armed security for every man woman and child in this country, then and only then can they pretend that we as a people are safe from violence.
