Interesting comments VP Biden made about hunting and guns.

I find it hard to understand how responsible gun-owners could back the irresponsible system supported by the NRA, which purposefully has forced forward legislation that makes getting a gun in the United States a very easy thing to do, most especially for criminals.
I would think, upon looking at the picture provided of the dinner, that as proud as most gun-owners are of their weapons and their 2nd Amendment rights, they would want to do more to prove to all just how responsible they were.
Responsibility is the exact opposite of what one reads on the pro-gun blogs, including the one from Southern Delaware, .. DelawarePolitics.net. They are so irresponsible, I cannot see them even showing up for this Wild Game Dinner.
Bottom line, if you are truly responsible, you will want guns out of the hands of criminals.... Having no rules, no oversight, no records, is the exact opposite of responsibility......

The NRA doesn't represent the views of the majority of 'responsible' gun owners. Instead, the NRA is a schill for gun manufacturers who make a profit from selling military assault rifles. Again, big money trumps what's best for society.

I'm pretty sure the NRA is to be more trusted than Shotgun Joe Biden when it comes to firearms safety...first, it's illegal to discharge a firearm outside one's house to "scare off" intruders (as Joe instructed us to do) and second...how many people think it's a good idea to shoot through your door with a shotgun if you think there may possibly be an intruder outside?(also instructions from Biden).

Earl Grey. I'm not so sure you are right in that comparison. I'm not defending the Biden shotgun remark. I am emphasizing that as far out as that shot gun remark may be, the NRA consistently is worse or more out there with the things they propose...
They should not be considered as the "voice" of responsible gun owners... Actually Biden is ironically closer to representing them than the out of this world idealogical NRA... who does receive close to 60% of their funding by gun manufactures.

This series will make a great companion to "Growing up Gotti"
and "Hoarding: Buried Alive".

I'll side with Eddie Eagle...and you can stand by your man Joe.
