Vice President Joe Biden said Thursday that while he had not finalized his recommendations on curbing gun violence, which he plans to deliver to President Obama by Tuesday, a consensus was emerging over banning assault weapons and high-capacity ammunition magazines as well as tightening background checks.
Biden said the White House is determined to act quickly to curb gun violence and will explore all avenues – including executive orders that would not require approval by Congress.
As for this “consensus”, U.S. Sen. Bill Nelson has a poll up on his web site that asks; ‘Would you favor reinstating the federal assault weapons ban that expired in 2004?’
And wouldn’t you know it, Biden is right about a consensus emerging…
The problem is, it is not a consensus in favor of the ideological agenda being pursued by Obama and the Far Left. While not scientific, the poll results indicate an overwhelming sentiment not to initiate a federal assault weapons ban.
