Biden: Some people just like shooting guns because “it’s like driving a Ferrari”

posted at 10:41 am on April 11, 2013 by Erika Johnsen

I still find it bizarre that, of all people, this is the guy they’re sending out to lead the charge on gun control. I suppose, for one thing, he’s at least — ahem — unintimidating?

It’s used to be, Joe, we were dealing almost exclusively with hunters. … There’s a whole new sort of group of individuals who, I don’t what the numbers are, that never hunt at all, but they own guns for one of two reasons: Self-protection, or, they just like the feel of that AR-15 at the range. They like the way it feels. They just, you know, it’s like driving a Ferrari, you know. So, my impression is, there’s not the same sort of cultural norm about gun ownership with a lot of people who are buying guns now.

Actually, people go to the range because it is fundamentally irresponsible to own firearms for self-protection, hunting, or any use without being well-practiced in their handling. And sure, firing at the range can be a lot of fun, and I know I’ve had a bit of “new toy”-mentality when I bought my first gun, but that’s only because it’s an empowering activity in an “I refuse to be a victim”-type of way, not because it’s glamorous or showy or expensive.

The only gun control Biden should be concerned with is his own shooting off his mouth.

Let’s see…shooting an AR-15 is like driving a Ferrari? WOW! I can’t afford a Ferrari, so I’ll go out and buy an AR-15! Way to sell me, Joe, sounds like fun!

Joe Biden likes shooting his mouth off because he thinks it’s like driving a Ferrari.

North East coast liberal fails to understand fly-over country. I’m surprised! Not. It’s about self-protection and always has been. Being able to hunt is an added benefit but not essential to why I own weapons.

I have guns in my safe that I never ever shoot because they are investments and will payoff handsomely the day I decide to sell them.

And there is nothing in the world like shooting a sub 2″ MOA at 500+ yards, nothing, but gun grabbers will never understand such satisfaction because they think guns are only good for killing.

I guess I missed the part of the Second Amendment that makes cultural norms a factor. Must be hidden with the hunting provisions.

Bottom line, the Second Amendment does not precondition with motives one’s right to keep and bear arms. We should not allow our elected officials to take that civil right away from us.

Color me confused – is he trying to sell guns?

There’s a whole new sort of group of individuals who, I don’t what the numbers are, that never hunt at all, but they own guns for one of two reasons: Self-protection, or, they just like the feel of that AR-15 at the range. They like the way it feels. They just, you know, it’s like driving a Ferrari, you know.

Self-protection? You mean like Self-protection for a tyrannical government?

They just like the feel of that AR-15 at the range.

Does he mean useful (But Oh so Scary!) features like hand grips and adjustable stocks to make these guns easier to hold and use?

Does he mean guns that aren’t as powerful as big hunting rifles that are easy on the shoulder and you can carry quite a few more of those pointy things that clip into a magazine?

What’s really nice is shooting my AR out the window of my Ferrari.

Akzed on April 11, 2013 at 11:03 AM

Actually, it’s more like this:

“This is my rifle. There are many like it, but this one is mine. It is my life. I must master it as I must master my life. Without me my rifle is useless. Without my rifle, I am useless. I must fire my rifle true. I must shoot straighter than the enemy who is trying to kill me. I must shoot him before he shoots me. I will. My rifle and I know that what counts in war is not the rounds we fire, the noise of our burst, or the smoke we make. We know that it is the hits that count. We will hit.

My rifle is human, even as I am human, because it is my life. Thus, I will learn it as a brother. I will learn its weaknesses, its strengths, its parts, its accessories, its sights and its barrel. I will keep my rifle clean and ready, even as I am clean and ready. We will become part of each other.

Before God I swear this creed. My rifle and I are the defenders of my country. We are the masters of our enemy. We are the saviors of my life.

So be it, until victory is America’s and there is no enemy.”

–Marine Corps Rifleman’s Creed

I know a lot of “traditional gun owners”. But I also know a good few people who live in the middle of metropolitan areas, who never hunt or engage in any sort of actually USING their guns for something, who have ar-15′s modified to the hilt.

They like guns. It IS and awesome gun and fun to shoot. But there is a sort of “prepper’s” movement happening. And it’s purpose is to be ready and armed to the teeth should some sort or armed conflict or zombie apocalypse breakout. Which is of course their constitutional right in its highest essence.

But this is what he’s talking about.

It’s a veiled way to say that gun owners aren’t real men. A guy gets a flashy sports car because he lacks something in the man department. He’s saying the same thing about owning a gun. Personally, I quite enjoy going to the range… I hate hunting I used to go with my old man. We walk 2 miles and wait for a chance the whole day. Then when you did get a kill, you got to clean it and walk another 2 miles with a dead deer. Just wait… Uncle Joe will be calling hunters sociopaths next. I can hear it,”Folks these hunters aren’t like us. They spend all day out in the woods by themselves with only a gun as their company. Trust me, they’re survivalists black helicopter nuts. Why would anyone do this when there are supermarkets. Let’s use commonsense that my mother Finnegan taught me. I’m Irish you know!”

Since Biden is wealthy enough to afford multiple Ferrari’s and an AR-15′s, I will have to conclude that he is speaking out of experience.

Since I cannot afford a Ferrari, I will therefore purchase several AR-15′s since they are within my price range.

Thank you, Joe, for that advice.

Shooting – like fishing, rock climbing, flying, or driving – is a skill. Most normal people find some satisfaction in working on new skills. Especially if those skills may one day come in handy.

Gun ownership has far more to do with simple human nature than any Ferrarri Factor.

freedomfirst on April 11, 2013 at 11:22 AM

I watched a very little bit of this this morning. Frankly, I couldn’t stand it. They hopped all over the place and were very intent on their OWN points of view. For example, when discussing bullets that could explode inside, the pro-gun guy pointed out that those bullets could be used in many kinds of guns, including pistols and bolt-action shotguns.

Well, that didn’t stop Mika! Then she changed the topic to — automatic rifles are bad, deflecting the question away from the bullets. It was maddening.

But I swear Biden uttered an unequivocal falsehood. He was talking about the availability of large-capacity magazines/rifles (this was in the conext of the mentally ill) and was talking about how every shooter — every one in the mass shooting cases — had come by his guns. Well, Adam Lanza took his mother’s. I can’t remember the exact wording, but I turned the television off. No one challenged him, of course.

First, the gun-grabbers tried saying we all want kids to die. When that didn’t work, they said guns aren’t truly good for self-defense. Then, women might get too hysterical and shoot an innocent person.

Then, shoot into the air or through the door at an unseen target. Next up came the idea of saying we’re all paranoid and watching the sky for black helicopters.

Now, we’re all a bunch of emotional adolescents whose only motivation is because we like shiny baubles. Funny, if a wanted a ‘Ferrari’ kind of firearm, I’d go for a .50 cal Barrett.

The gun-grabbers, most obviously Biden, are looking for any reason that will stick. So far, none of their arguments really have in persuading people who are pro-Second or indifferent to change their minds. This seems one of the biggest fishing expeditions in political history.

What will guns be to Joe tomorrow: That the men need p*nis extensions and the women suffer from p*nis envy?

Some take slight offense at the self-defense phrase – but I saw someone else express it this way:

That should cover all the bases on that matter.

As for guns…well, show me where in the Constitution it mentions hunting, or target shooting, or sport shooting.

Beuller? Beuller? Anyone?

Tyrannical government or foreign invader were the sole reason for the Second Amendment.

No other reason.

None.

As for all the new and improved gun laws being pushed through…show me one of them…in any state…or at the federal level that, if passed into law, would prevent one single incident of some whack-job deciding to go play assassin in a big way?

Aurora?

Newtown?

Oak Creek?

But, go ahead…trust the government…they never get it wrong, ever…and always, always have our best interests at heart…and they will protect you 100% in any incident or event…100%…if you just let them disarm the Nation wholesale.

I’m confused. I this clip he says a shotgun blast will not go through 1/2″ of drywall. But earlier advised to ward off home invaders by using that shotgun to shooting through your 1 1/2 inch solid core steel or wooden front door because it will go through that. How exactly does that work?

Unicorn Power!

Biden also knows his media flunkies won’t note his inconsistencies. His every pronouncement is new and his very first, all previous ones that don’t match up ignored by the LSM like they had never been spoken.

Biden reminds me of Chance Gardener in the film “Being There” (1979). He’s has the mind of a child, and gets high up in politics just by “Being There”. Near the end of the file the housekeeper spills the beans:

It’s for sure a white man’s world in America. Look here: I raised that boy since he was the size of a piss-ant. And I’ll say right now, he never learned to read and write. No, sir. Had no brains at all. Was stuffed with rice pudding between th’ ears. Shortchanged by the Lord, and dumb as a jackass. Look at him now! Yes, sir, all you’ve gotta be is white in America, to get whatever you want. Gobbledy-gook!

Biden: “It’s the truth. I’m serious. I’m not joking.”

I wonder if it’s his arrogance that makes Biden come across as such a fool.

An unadulterated fool and a dunce…. the gift that keeps on giving.

Out here in the sticks gun ownership and proficiency are more about self reliance and preservation than anything else. If the grocery supply chain is interrupted, meat is easy to come by if you have a rifle of some sort.

I can protect my livestock and chickens (and their eggs) from coyotes and wolves pretty easily if I have a rifle of some sort.

I can protect my property from interlopers and ne’er do wells quite easily if I have a rifle of some sort.

It is up to ME to decide what the best tools are for my family’s sustainability. Take that choice away, and you’ve put my family in jeopardy. Put my family in jeopardy and we’re going to be cross.

This dolt makes one ashamed to be part of the same country.
