Joe Biden Invents Phony Gun Statistics — Because SHUT UP HATERS, That’s Why!

Posted on | April 18, 2013 | 49 Comments

Stephen Gutowski describes the goofball’s latest anti-gun idiocy:

By combining, apparently in his head and on the fly, the demonstrably inaccurate “80,000 plus people a year” with the debunked claim that 40% of gun sales in America don’t require a background check, Mr. Biden reaches the completely unverifiable claim that “between 30,000 and 50,000 who get a gun who are not qualified. Probably higher.” That claim, the child of two other blatantly inaccurate claims used to forward gun control agendas, is, of course, itself used to forward a gun control agenda.

Facts? Logic? Who needs silly stuff like that, when you’ve got President AngryPants ranting against his opponents as moral inferiors? Besides, there’s always “shameless emotional bullying — political necromancy,” and the familiar “absolute moral authority” of victimhood employed to silence rational policy debate.

Our political, academic and media elites deliberately foment this atmosphere of hysterical emotionalism that empowers, for example, the insufferably smug Lawrence O’Donnell to blame the NRA — ! — for the Boston Marathon bombing.

The decadent creatures who would rule over us are forever “Hijacking crises for fun and profit,” as Ed Morrissey says. Or, more to the point, they are hijacking crises to augment their power and enhance their narcissistic enjoyment of imaginary superiority to the rest of us.

    Speaking o fmaking up stats;
    Where did that bloviating asswipe come up with his “90%” number?

    Reagan described Biden as being “part of the lynch mob.” He didn’t like him or trust him. I think at this time, Biden isn’t responsible for anything he says. And that’s pretty sad and scary since he’s the VP.

  • Adobe_Walls

    Reid keeps insisting they voted “against” the wishes of 90% of the voters in every state. 95% of our elected officials have neither the integrity nor the intestinal fortitude to vote against 90% of the people.

    Considering his advice, Biden is one of those who should not have a gun.

  • caseym54

    Joe Biden is clearly less qualified to be VP than either Dan Quayle or Spiro Agnew, and that’s a pretty low bar.

    Why does everybody get so upset about lying by this administration? This bunch in Congress and the WH would lie even if the truth would do them some good. They are hard wired to lie.

    Actually, under the Manchin-Toomey Unemployment Act of 2013, Biden’s brain aneurism would have been grounds to take away his fancy Beretta shotgun.

  • richard mcenroe

    There was a poll. You know how reliable polls are. Better than voting. /sarc

  • jsn2

    Not that we need more proof, but the silence from the media after another dimwitted comment from Biden proves how far in the tank they are for this administration. With his teeth Biden would be great in a Poligrip commercial. With his brain he would make a great maitre d at Red Lobster.

    Dear Senator Reid, the American people are no longer buying it. If you said Good Morning we’d look out the window to see if the sun had come up, Sincerely, All of Us.

    Actually Dan Quayle is a good man and was far brighter than the character the media portrayed him out to be.

    I disagree with that last part: eventually he’d say something stupid and offensive and get fired.

    OTOH, the thought of President Biden surely keeps many of us bitter clingers praying for the health and safety of The One.

    Funny innit: Gabby Giffords has “absolute moral authority” because she got shot by a madman, but people who didn’t get shot by a madman because they defended themselves with a firearm have NO moral authority.

    Such is the illogic and idiocy of the leftistas.

    “30,000 and 50,000 who get a gun who are not qualified. Probably higher.”

    Nah, there aren’t that many liberal democrats with guns. One thing is for sure, he’s not qualified to a be a turd in the punch bowl.

  • Adjoran

    I think you have the roles reversed there.

  • Adjoran

    Obama, Biden, Reid, Pelosi, and company feel perfectly free to lie because they know their audience. The hard leftists will follow them no matter what they say, and the parasites and cult followers are too stupid to figure it out.

    He would grope some woman and get fired.
    I noticed his hands were pretty busy at that lame propaganda outing.

    The bigger picture is that the media ia in league with Democrats not to expose their lies, therefore, as Rush points out the low information voter thinks this is true and votes accordingly. That’s why that one Democrat consultant even said media bias is now a threat to our democracy.

    Paul Ryan says spending is 24.5% of GDP and the media SCREAM its 24.4% RYAN LIED GRANDMA DIED!!!!!
    Biden says crap like this and ………..crickets. So people believe it.
