. . . from guess who:
“The one person I don’t want to have a weapon is a fugitive from justice. I’d rather have an ex-felon have access to a weapon than someone fleeing the justice system.”
Yeah, you guessed it. That was our “brilliant” VP, Joseph Biden, speaking to the National League of Cities this past Tuesday.
Suit yourself, Mr. VP. Personally, I’d rather neither had a weapon.
But I do have to wonder about the VP’s statement after thinking some about what he said. As I recall, someone with an outstanding unpaid traffic ticket is technically a “fugitive from justice”. I think I’d rather see that particular fugitive with a gun vice some unrepentant 35-year-old hard case who’s just got out after doing 15 years for rape and attempted murder.
(No, that’s not unrealistic. This guy will be eligible for parole after 20 years after being convicted of the kidnapping, rape, and attempted murder of a 10 year old child.)
There are some other real “gems” in the VP’s remarks. There is a short video at the link, so you can hear them yourself if you like.
I’d say enjoy, but unlike liberals preaching gun control I refuse to be a public hypocrite.
