Biden, Bloomberg Continue Gun Control Push

    Bloomberg continues to push gun control. Old empty headed Joe nods alot, points at people while standing on stage, and offers people shotgunning tips like "racking the chamber on a double barreled shotgun to ward off possible intruders", or "shoot through the door".

    Good Ol Joe...better than an evening at the "Laugh Factory"!
