JoBi Tells Religious Leaders: Morality Favors Gun Control


Noted theologian and United States Vice President Joe Biden entreated a room full of religious leaders to support Congress’ second attempt at gun control by recasting the language of gun-related violence in moral terms when communicating with their followers.

In a closed-door meeting Monday, Biden spoke with Christian, Muslim, Jewish and other religious leaders, calling for them to counter the National Rifle Association’s Constitutional basis for fighting gun restrictions with a moral one, according to TheBlaze.

That may be a tough sell to people like Rabbi Dovid Bendory of Jews For The Preservation Of Firearms Ownership or Pastor Chuck Baldwin, as well as the multitude of religious people out there who make compelling moral cases in favor of preserving 2nd Amendment powers.

Personal Liberty

Ben Bullard

Reconciling the concept of individual sovereignty with conscientious participation in the modern American political process is a continuing preoccupation for staff writer Ben Bullard. A former community newspaper writer, Bullard has closely observed the manner in which well-meaning small-town politicians and policy makers often accept, unthinkingly, their increasingly marginal role in shaping the quality of their own lives, as well as those of the people whom they serve. He argues that American public policy is plagued by inscrutable and corrupt motives on a national scale, a fundamental problem which individuals, families and communities must strive to solve. This, he argues, can be achieved only as Americans rediscover the principal role each citizen plays in enriching the welfare of our Republic.

    Joe Bite-Me, your typical misguided leftist, somehow believes being a victim is somehow morally superior to defending yourself.

    Sell your cloak and buy a sword.

    Even Christ understands “self defense”.
    The Jews are right there too.
    With the 1rst amendment under attack concerning freedom of religion, I hope they understand the 2nd amendment is their defense to protect the 1rst.

    There is NO possible moral reason for disarming the

    ~300 MILLION Americans who did not shoot anyone.

    Stop trying to punish the innocent for the acts of a VERY few.

    Stop it
    Stop it NOW.

      I think that the new town shooting was part of a government action?? I think that Obama is using those poor grieving families to further his own agenda !!

    If these “Religious leaders” buy what Biden is trying to sell them then they aren’t very smart, and they aren’t really leaders, they are followers!

    Considering that gun crimes have gone down 39% since 1993 (according to the DOJ), when Americans are buying guns in enormous numbers, how ironic that the administration wants to use gun violence as a reason to disarm law-abiding Americans.
