CCRKBA to Biden: It's Not Your Gun Obama Wants, It's Everyone Else's

Last update: 2:21 p.m. EDT Sept. 22, 2008

BELLEVUE, Wash., Sep 22, 2008 (BUSINESS WIRE) -- Democratic vice presidential candidate Joe Biden was trying to convince rural Virginians the other day that he's a devoted gun owner who will not allow presidential nominee Barack Obama to "fool with my Beretta."

"Senator Biden must think America's gun owners are dumber than rocks," said CCRKBA Chairman Alan Gottlieb. "Here is a man who has supported every restrictive gun control and gun ban law that ever landed on his desk, suddenly telling Virginia residents that he's a gun owner, and very pro-gun.

"Biden tried to sound folksy in Virginia, talking about his 'little over and under' Beretta," Gottlieb noted. "Senator, it's not your Beretta that concerns American gun owners, but their own Colts, Smith & Wessons, Kimbers, Winchesters, Marlins, Remingtons, Mossbergs, Springfields, Kahrs and Brownings.

"If Biden really does own an over-and-under Beretta, has he fired it lately," Gottlieb wondered. "What model is it, what's it chambered for, and where is it? Why does he think that's a more worthy gun to own than, say, an AR-15, or a Benelli semi-auto? What makes a Beretta shotgun more deserving of protection against Draconian legislation than a .45-caliber Model 1911, a .357 Magnum Ruger Blackhawk, a .50-caliber Thompson/Center or a .22-caliber Colt Diamondback? Would Joe Biden know the difference between any of these guns if he saw one?

"Joe Biden has spent the last three decades on Capitol Hill voting not merely against guns, but against the law-abiding American citizens who own these guns," Gottlieb stated. "He has voted against their civil rights, and against their traditional values, and now he is running as second fiddle to a Chicago suburbanite who has dismissed such citizens as bitter, and clinging to their guns and religion.

"And now we are supposed to believe that Joe Biden is a gun-toting defender of the Second Amendment, after years of trying to dismantle it," Gottlieb concluded. "This guy has spent a career in Washington, D.C. assaulting the civil rights of gun owners. Now he's insulting their intelligence."

From here until vote time he will change his stance back and forth depending on what crowd in what state he is addressing. And unfortunatly I think McCain will too.
