Biden to make gun recommendations by Tuesday

Vice President Joe Biden appears to be taking his boss's demand for a quick recommendation on gun violence seriously.

Biden said Thursday that he will give recommendations to President Barack Obama by Tuesday on how to reduce gun violence in the United States. Biden is heading a task force that is meeting with numerous groups this week, including some for and some against stricter gun controls.

Obama, following a shooting that killed 20 children and six women at a Connecticut elementary school in December, had set a January deadline for the recommendations. Read more about the task force here.

    How IRONIC it is that Obama's success is now dependent on the same Senate that he left, never doing much more than vote present (not yes or no) for 143 days and channelling a half million to his personal friends via earmarked projects headed by his personal, long time friends Reverend Write and Father Pfleger in the community he once organized.

    How convenient that Eric Holder is Biden's right hand man in the picture. Maybe he can conduct these meetings like the WACO inquiry, where he let the ATF off the hook for the botching operation that incinerated 76 men women and small children that were ALL US citizens. And then Holder can tell us about the inside secrets to the Fast and Furious guns that were used to kill U.S. Border Patrol Agent Brian Terry on Dec. 14, 2010, in Peck Canyon, Ariz. Others whose murders have been connected to Holder's Fast and Furious weapons include Immigration and Customs Enforcement Agent Jaime Zapata and Mexican citizen Mario Gonzalez. Gonzalez’s sister, Patricia Gonzalez, was the state prosecutor for Mexican state Chihuahua.

    Beware of rhetoric

    I remember rhetoric from people advocating gun control several years ago in Canada "we don't need guns to protect our freedom or tyranny, we have the freedom of expression and the free press".

    It is false, my freedom of expression was violated, an obvious violation, and I was incarcerated. No news paper or news media reported the obvious violation to this day. So these are obviously not our protection from oppression and tyranny.
