This series is called “In the Court of Public Opinion”. Within this series I will be the prosecutor and I will present my case against the person, organization or whatever I get a hankering to prosecute. However I will only be the prosecutor. You the reader will be the judge, jury and executioner if need be. You will decide if the accused is guilty or innocent. You decide also what the accused is guilty of if anything. If they are found guilty then you are expected to decide the punishment and you are expected to carry out the penalty phase. You decide if the accused is guilty of corruption, arrogance, stupidity, ignorance, deception, something else or nothing.
In the Court of Public Opinion: The People vs Vice President Joe Biden
Dear honorable and respected citizens I bring before you, in the Court of Public Opinion the case of “The People vs Joe Biden”.
Vice President Biden has provided so much evidence that I may not be able to present it all in this forum. Therefore I will present the more pertinent evidence in his case. I would ask you to look at each piece of evidence and evaluate it thoroughly then decide for yourself what he might be guilty.
He once said “you want to keep someone away from your house, just fire the shotgun through the door.”– Sure go ahead and take his advice if you want to be arrested and convicted of a crime. Matter of a fact on a Monday just a few weeks ago, a young man in Virginia was charged with reckless handling of a firearm because he took Biden’s advice. He fired through a closed door and several windows. If he had been “lucky” and actually killed someone he would have been charged with murder. Justifiable homicide does not include killing someone through a closed secure door. Is this responsible advice for the Vice President of the USA to be giving citizens? Is this smart advice? Is it legal for a Federal official to tell citizens to take illegal actions?
He also said “if there’s ever a problem, just walk out on the balcony here, walk out and put that double-barrel shotgun and fire two blasts outside the house.”– He stated that this was the advice he gave his wife when she might be in danger in their home. Okay let’s say she had a “problem”, she did take his advice and did just that. Seldom does a homeowner know there is a “problem”, until the “problem” is already inside their home. She just fired two shotgun rounds into the air because she heard a noise downstairs within the house. Now here she is standing outside with a shotgun, on a balcony, overlooking the first floor exits. What do you think the “problem” or “problems” are going to do? Do you think they will be so quick to exit the house? If the “problems” are armed what do you think they will do? They definitely will be less reluctant to pull the trigger when they know that there is an armed homeowner about. There is another problem with his advice and that is she is standing there with an empty shotgun. She is actually a sitting duck or target with an empty gun. The “problems” won’t hesitate to use any weapons that they might have, especially since she fired first and she would be totally defenseless. We all know that is ridiculous advice especially for his wife because we all know she is under the protection of the Secret Service and there is little if any need for her to defend herself. I wonder how the Secret Service agents would respond to her “double barrel action”?
This statement from Biden is an especially good one “If you want to keep people away during an earthquake, buy some shotgun shells.”– I guess a lot of people attack during earthquakes and seldom after the quake. Attacks during earthquakes must happen very often in his neighborhood because he mentioned it but doesn’t mention other high risks such as from rapists, vandals, muggers or any other violent criminals. I think he forgot one little detail and that is that the shells are useless without the shotgun. He seems to have a love for shotguns I wonder why? Could it be because of their limited range? They are deadly when used up close and personal but are useless at any distance. Criminals rarely use shotguns ever wonder why?
Another jewel from Biden “Guess what, a shotgun will keep you a lot safer — a double barreled shotgun — than an assault weapon…It is harder to use an assault weapon to hit something than it is with a shotgun.”– I guess he doesn’t really know much about weapons. He is correct in the fact that it is easier to hit a target with a shotgun in open spaces but has he ever tried to use a shotgun in close quarters? In close quarters a legal length shotgun is harder to maneuver than the shorter barrel “assault weapon”. The other problem with his love for double barreled shotguns is that you only have two chances to stop an assault. At least with the “assault weapon” or any other weapon with a clip, you have many more chances to hit your target. The more rounds in your clip the more chances you have. There is this incorrect mentality among the ignorant public that just because you point your gun at someone and fire it then you will hit them. Nothing could be farther from the truth. If that was true, then explain why there are so many police shootouts where hundreds of rounds are fired and no one was hit? Remember the police are highly trained in the use of firearms and they still miss more than they hit. You also need to consider the fact that, if the criminal is inside the house with you, then he is probably in very close proximity to you already. That probably means he is within what is called “point blank range”. Point blank range basically means it is very hard to miss the target. That means it would be hard to miss anyone with any weapon. You probably wouldn’t miss with a shotgun, but you could, but then again you probably wouldn’t miss with 10 to 20 rounds either. I would rather have the chances I with the 10 to 20 rounds than the chances from just two shotgun shells. You never know how many intruders might be in your house, reloading just might give them enough time to take the shotgun away from you. You may not be aware of this but most of the time when an assailant takes a gun away from a victim they typically use that same weapon against the victim.
Biden stated this as well “It is true that the vast majority of gun deaths in America are not a consequence of the use of an assault weapon, but that begs the issue of whether or not assault weapons have any utility.”—Look at what he actually said, I’ll put it simpler terms. Since the few people are killed by assault weapons then what good are assault weapons? Does that mean that all the weapons that are actually used in gun deaths in America have a viable use, thus they can be considered acceptable? Okay since the vast majority of gun deaths aren’t from what he calls “assault weapons” then why is he going after them? Why isn’t he going after the real cause of violent deaths in America? By the way, any weapon that is used to assault another person is an assault weapon even a baseball bat, there is no real gun category called assault weapon.
Biden tried to justify the poor performance of this administration with this one “When people take a look at what has happened since we have taken office in November and compare it to the alternative, we’re going to be in great shape.”—I would love to ask him just how great everything is now, 2.5 years after he made this statement. With national debt at an all time high and growing, gas prices rising out of sight, jobless numbers increasing, American wealth evaporating, taxes for the average American at an all time high, our military being gutted like it has never been before and corruption now being considered the norm not only in the boardroom but in government offices as well.
Biden stated “The other thing I’ve hear from my friends who oppose this – this whole jobs bill – that this is just temporary,” …
“Well let me tell you, it’s not temporary when that 911 call comes in and a woman’s being raped, if a cop shows up in time to prevent the rape. It’s not temporary to that woman,” …. “It’s not temporary to the guy whose store is being held up and there’s a gun pointed at his head, if a cop shows up and he’s not killed. That’s not temporary to that store owner. Give me a break! Temporary! ”— How many times has a woman called the police while she is being raped? How many times have you heard of a policeman stopping a rape from occurring? I will give you the fact that on a random coincidence a cop just might show up by accident and stop a crime but no jobs bill will ever have anything to do with that. Besides street cops do not work for the federal government they work for the local law enforcement and the “jobs bill” is for Federal workers not local law enforcement.
Biden’s take on high capacity magazines, “We are calling for the prohibition of high capacity magazines all together. High capacity magazines leave victims with no chance and leave policeman outgunned sometimes too,”—High capacity magazines does give a potential victim the chance of not being a victim if they just happen to have the magazines installed within their own weapon. However if the magazines are outlawed then it is likely that the criminal could have one and the law abiding victim would no chance of having one. Laws do not protect us from lunatics and criminals because by definition criminals act outside of the law. Only the law abiding citizens are restricted by the law. The law can only restrict the criminal after he has committed the crime and has been apprehended, not before. That doesn’t help the victim who is probably already dead. Laws do not stop criminals from committing crimes.
This is one of my favorites “We have one for drugs so why can’t we have one for guns?”—Biden said this in reference to making laws to stop gun trafficking like the ones we have for drugs. Yes we have laws against drug trafficking and they work so well don’t they? We can expect the same success with gun trafficking laws as we have had with drug trafficking. This has to be the lamest excuse of all for passing any law.
I rest my case. Now it is your turn to do your duty. You decide from the evidence presented is the accused guilty or not. If the accused is guilty then you decide what the accused is guilty of and what his punishment should be?
