Biden said nothing he and Obama are proposing would impinge on the Second Amendment’s guarantee of every American’s right to “responsible” gun ownership. I don’t know, sounds like DIRECT impingement to me.

Nor, he said, should anyone worry that Big Brother-style restrictions are on the way. Oh, like Obama’s executive order bypassing congress regarding the CISPA internet privacy legislation?

“There is that old saw that this is a slippery slope,” he said. Unabated gun violence is “the slippery slope I am worried about." Does he mean the one where the crime rate in this country, including gun violence has been steadily going DOWN for years?
