Biden Continues Gun Control Tour

PHILADELPHIA — Vice President Joe Biden told regional law enforcement officials here Monday that new laws are necessary to curb gun violence and he pledged to take the message to small town America.

“If we can save the life of one single person, one child, without any impact on an individual’s constitutional right, then why in God’s name should we not do that?” Biden said at a round-table discussion. “We’re going to be judged very harshly if we don’t.”

Among those attending was Christine Dunning, police chief in Wilmington, Del., Biden’s hometown. Earlier Monday, a gunman opened fire in the New Castle County Courthouse in Wilmington, killing two women and wounding two police officers. The shooter, who was previously convicted of kidnapping and bank fraud, was also killed.

    If I can save only one child's life by owning an AR15 with a 30 round magazine, then the goobermint should leave me the fuck alone!

    “If we can save the life of one single person, one child, without any impact on an individual’s constitutional right,"

    Well, because what you propose will fail in both particulars.
