Libtards like Dianne Feinstein,, Michael Bloomberg and Andrew “Mario Jr.” Cuomo, think is criminal for a non-government employee to possess a semi-automatic weapon,. The party line advice from the Strutting Delaware Blue Hen on personal defense, from Red Alert Politics:
Joe Biden is all about gun control these days — but that doesn’t mean he’s against using them to protect oneself in a natural disaster situation.
“You want to keep people away in an earthquake, buy some shotgun shells,” he said on Thursday.
The Vice President participated in a PBS “Fireside Hangout” about gun safety, and one questioner asked about using assault weapons as protection during “the big earthquake” or a natural disaster.
“Guess what, a shotgun will keep you a lot safer — a double-barreled shotgun — than an assault weapon in somebody’s hands who doesn’t know how to use it, even one who does know how to use it,” the VP said. You know. It’s harder to use an assault weapon to hit something than it is a shotgun.”
Big Sis, b/k/a Janet Napolitano has a rather different view, from Hammer of Truth:
The Department of Homeland Security is currently soliciting RFP’s to purchase 7,000 “personal defense” weapons, also known as “assault weapons” when owned by civilians. From Radio Vice Online:
Biden says all you need for personal defense is a shotgun. On the other hand, Napolitano wants bo buy seven thousand machine guns, for her civilian work force. Whom do you believe?
:Addendum: Reax, Phineas, Sister Toldjah:
Let’s keep this straight, shall we? When you want an AR-15 for home defense, you’re a dangerous, mouth-breathing, knuckle-dragging, Bible and Constitution (and wife) beating radical who finds his manhood enhanced by getting your hands on an “assault weapon.” And should you want a magazine that holds ten or more rounds… You’re just fantasizing about shooting up a mall, aren’t you?
But, when the DHS wants its agents to have similar weapons… Those aren’t “assault weapons,” silly! Those are for “personal defense!” And, unlike you, they really do need high-capacity magazines! Ten rounds? Bah! Let’s go for 30! And the option for full auto-fire!
