“A well regulated militia, being necessary to the security of a free state, the right of the people to keep and bear arms, shall not be infringed.” – 2nd Amendment to the U. S. Constitution.
Vice President Biden has been tasked with the responsibility of conducting a conversation, investigation and hearings on whether, our Constitution notwithstanding, the citizens of the United States should be allowed to own weaponry – specifically guns. This should prove very interesting and I plan on following this closely and report updates as they are warranted.
The Vice-President has an extensive history and record of being anti-gun and has long advocated greater and more restrictive gun control measures. This may disturb our sports heroes in the NFL, three-quarters of whom own personal weapons. Maybe they’ll organize a play to sack the Veep.
I hope that VP Biden brings with him to this discussion, the same open-minded thinking he brought to the subject of abortion. Perhaps you recall his statement during the Vice Presidential debate.
While he is a practicing Roman Catholic, he felt “that imposing his personal beliefs on others in the matter of abortion was ‘wrong.’”
I wonder if he will carry the same philosophy to his involvement in the discussion over gun ownership.
II be or not II be. That is the question.
