Biden Blasted for Criticism of Texas Law Allowing Guns in Churches

Former Vice President Joe Biden deserves every brickbat being thrown in his direction in the aftermath of Sunday’s church shooting incident in Texas for declaring in September that the state’s new law allowing guns in churches is “irrational,” the Citizens Committee for the Right to Keep and Bear Arms said today.

But Biden should not be alone in the hot seat, said CCRKBA Chairman Alan Gottlieb.

“The deafening silence from Biden’s fellow Democrats still in the presidential race is equally telling,” Gottlieb observed. “Not one of them has stepped forward to offer even faint praise for the courage of Jack Wilson, who used his legally-carried pistol to stop the shotgun-wielding killer from wreaking more havoc at the West Freeway Church of Christ.

“The gun control crowd has been predictably silent,” he continued, “because the use of firearms by private citizens in defense of themselves and others—especially a large crowd of worshippers in a church—just doesn’t fit the extremist gun control narrative.”

Sunday’s tragic incident was ended in six seconds after the gunman, identified as a man with a criminal record in at least three states, fatally shot two members of the church congregation. Wilson’s quick action and accuracy prevented further carnage.

“Within seconds,” Gottlieb noted, “video of the tragic incident revealed at least seven more church members with drawn guns carefully closing in on the downed killer. Their responsible use of firearms to defend their fellow congregants is exactly why Texas enacted its new laws. At the very least, Biden should apologize for his earlier criticism.

“Biden’s trash talk in September symbolizes everything wrong with his party’s increasing hostility toward law-abiding gun owners and the Second Amendment,” he said. “This year, we’ve already heard proposals for mandatory buybacks, registration and licensing, gun bans and Beto O’Rourke’s outright threat of confiscation. If anyone has been irrational, it’s Biden and his fellow Democrats for their demagoguery and anti-rights hysteria.

“What happened Sunday in Texas,” Gottlieb concluded, “reminded us all of individual heroism, and that actions always speak louder than words, and that brave people act while politicians pontificate.”

 

With more than 650,000 members and supporters nationwide, the Citizens Committee for the Right to Keep and Bear Arms (www.ccrkba.org) is one of the nation’s premier gun rights organizations. As a non-profit organization, the Citizens Committee is dedicated to preserving firearms freedoms through active lobbying of elected officials and facilitating grass-roots organization of gun rights activists in local communities throughout the United States.

    Coming from a senile old pervert. Who’s had taxpayer funded armed security (Secret Service) protection since 2007 till present and will be entitled to it for the rest of his life. As well as his entire family.

      As I understand it, the families of the VP lose the personal detail after they are out of office…

      1. avatar Miner49er says:

        Of course, after Republican vice president dick Cheney got drunk and shot that man in the face, the Secret Service detail was necessary to protect the public from him.

        I’ll take Joe Biden’s verbal gaffes any day over dick Cheney’s wanting endangerment with a firearm.

          (49r said) I’ll take Joe Biden’s verbal gaffes any day over dick Cheney’s “WANTING” endangerment with a firearm.

          1st it’s WANTON endangerment NOT “wanting” endangerment..
          2nd you must have missed the memo but aparently Dick Cheney is the ONLY old white guy NOT running for POTUS.. You might be okay with Bidens “gaffs?” but most of us see them for what they are. Biden doesn’t know WHERE he is about 20% of the time (the other 80% his handlers are on top of it), he can’t remember when he was VP, he brags about doing shit that he is encouraging impeachment for Trump for alegedly doing, he has a really fucked up proclivity for “touching” LITTLE girls, he claims to have been places and done things that are EASILY proven to be a lie.. He is either the biggest liar on the planet OR he has onset alzhiemers or a brain aneurism. Any one of those is scary in a POTUS. And I can already hear the “what about Trumps lies” bullshit, Trump says shit to get a response and is 100% successful, anyone who has paid any attention at all gets this, he says something, the liberals and the MSM go off for days 24/7 looking like the fools they are and Trump just goes on about the business of the country, it’s all just a game to him when it comes to those clowns and they are really too easy to set off, much like trolls like you. and 3….2….1

          As opposed to a face full of bird shot from 12 gauge shotgun wielded by a drunken asshole.

        The people who spread lies to justify taking our guns, are also spreading lies to force us into a green-new-deal, open our borders, rip up our Constitution, and infringe upon our medical freedoms. That is already enough to fight against.

        We need to stick together and fight side-by-side.

        That, and the thought of you coming at me swinging a brickbat is somewhat unsettling. 🙂

          Lifesaver. I have no doubt you are sincere in your beliefs. But pgtwo? Not so much. If big pharma did not have him out here discrediting your cause they’d have to invent him. Which I believe they did in his case.

          My wife is anti vaccine and has been interviewed by Sally Elkordy. I know anti vaxxers. pgtwo is, at best, a troll.

        3. avatar MADDMAXX says:

          I don’t understand the whole anti-“anti-vaxxer” thing. If someone does not want to be innocculated against disease then let them be… Who are they hurting? If they get infected the only people they can do harm to is another unprotected person.. The current outbreak of measles is not affecting those whom have (A) already had measles as a child or (B) received the vaccine. I had measles as a child and it didn’t kill me so who cares, I understand the deeper concerns about more serious problems like smallpox, rubella etc but if parents want to play russian roulet with their childrens future that should be their decision… I am not an anti-vaxxer but I also do not have the desire to get involved (or see it play out) on a totally unrelated forum.. Is there not a vaxxer vs. anti-vaxxer forum somewhere within the great worldwide intenet where you all can go to rant and rave at each other about something that most of us here do not really give a shit about.

        4. avatar LifeSavor says:

          JWM,

          Thank you for your understanding. I do appreciate it.

          You may want to reconsider your thinking about PeeGeeTwo. He knows and has spoken with people I know. He knows the research. He is not a troll. He is strident, and strongly motivated. My guess, he and I have something else in common: someone we love badly damaged by vaccines. For me, it was my daughter. You can imagine events like this make zealots.

          All of that said, I like to point out that medical freedom is akin to free speach, privacy, and our right to defend our families and ourselves.

          Once again, JWM, thank you for your understanding.

        5. avatar LifeSavor says:

          MaddMax,

          You understand a great deal. Thank you.

          There is some convergence regarding medical freedom and gun rights, but your point that this is a gun forum is well-taken. Thank you.

        6. avatar Hannibal says:

          MADDMAXX, the problem is that many people cannot be safely immunized due to age, compromised immune systems, or a host of other factors. This is especially true of the very young. Herd immunity can take care of this because the disease simply can’t survive with so few hosts. Smallpox, a horrific disease, was eradicated thanks to vaccines. Polio would be gone but for a few countries where the populations are, essentially, anti-vaxxers.

          And don’t think that they’re only hurting themselves. You don’t really think a family that has a kid striken by a terrible, life-threatening disease ends up paying all the costs of it, do you?

          LifeSaver. If he’s an actual anti vaxxer, and I will take your word for it, he’s a loose cannon that does more harm than good.

          To set the record straight. I’m not anti vaccine. My wife is. She’s also a church goer and I’m not. So, we’re a mixed marriage.

          And yes, the .gov has no business in our medical lives.

        8. avatar Geoff "I'm getting too old for this shit" PR says:

          Nothing personal, Lifesavor. You at least talk guns, and self-defense, little ‘peegeee’ doesn’t. He’s like a one-trick-pony, spewing anti-vaxx crap and *nothing* else.

          This situation with him has been deteriorating for the last few years and has gotten to the point TTAG management devoted an entire article to it and has told him to knock it off. And he did, for a small while. Now he’s back to his old tricks.

          He doesn’t contribute to the comment section, it’s just a personal soap box for a dangerous and lethal ideology.

          Have you seen what smallpox does to a human? See for yourself, plenty more out there :

          https://www.snopes.com/fact-check/one-vaccinated-one-not-smallpox/

          Vaccines have eradicated that horror…

        9. avatar strych9 says:

          The problem with the vaxxer movement, other than being built on scientifically illiterate bullshit, is that for all the screaming about “muh rights!” they fail to take into account any one else’s rights.

          Living in an actual society is about balancing things out. Your rights end where the rights of others begin and all that. Such balance is absolutely lacking from vaxxers.

        10. avatar LifeSavor says:

          All,

          A few clarifications. I was ready to end this thread because it is not about guns, but some of the criticism, above, is painful.

          1. The “anti-vax” movement is not actually against all vaccines. It is against how vaccines are manufactured, the lack of testing, the suppression of data, and the elimination of choice.

          2. The “anti-vax” movement is not an ideology (although, for some, there is a religious component). It is based on solid science. There are plenty of world-class researchers in this movement. You can find some of it at the National Vaccine Information Center.

          3. The movement is growing because the way we do vaccines continues to cause severe damage to many.

          I do not want to argue the above details on this blog. Please, understand I have spent 20 years deeply involved in this topic. I am not stupid. I am not ignorant. I can argue both sides effectively.

          Thank you for your patience and understanding.

    Allowing guns in church might actually stop some shootings and the Democrats can’t have that because they need more bodies and warm blood to dance upon to promote their gun control agenda. The only thing they care about is power and they only care about the loss of human life when it allows them to get more power. Otherwise they don’t give a shit. After all these are the same people we are many of them silently hope for our death and many openly call for the government killing us all to confiscate our guns by force.

    But Biden as well as all Democrats nowadays do not give a shit about the lives that are lost as long as there’s enough of them to force gun control down the countries throat. Also the far left is very secular and despises Christianity and Judaism. Politicians going to church is just a floor show to pander to voters. Voters that they despise and want wipes out so the population can be replaced by illegal immigrants.

    You read my above statement correctly. Too, there exists morally and historically no difference between this armed volunteer security guard (undercover) who rose to the occasion with his semi-automatic pistol: 9mm, .40 S&W, or .45 Auto? vs. the Pilgrim or Puritan in Plymouth Colony in Massachusetts during the 1600’s who went to church carrying a matchlock musket. Too, these separatists had these smooth bore muzzle loading single shot weapons (crude and primitive compared of course to modern firearms). They kept these within instant reach during worship, assembly, and corporate gathering. Yes….I say “more tribute to this armed hero of the faith.” How many innocent lives he saved will never be known.

He is nothing more than a bobble head with a voice.

  26. avatar Ty says:

    Before this I just presumed that because in the United States that churches are private property that the carrying of firearms on church grounds would in general be the prerogative of the property owner. I know that even in states with restrictive gun laws, in much of California for instance, that there are usually legal loopholes for private property owners to allow carrying of firearms on the grounds of their own property. Of course, in such states these legal loopholes are sometimes superseded by more restrictive local ordinances.

    Also, I would think that one thing that might dissuade Church owners from allowing their parishioners from carrying firearms onto church grounds is the possibility that the Church could be held legally or civilly accountable in case of an serious accident involving firearms on church property. I’m thinking that if I were an owner of a church that I would prefer that only people with some credentials stating proof of extensive training with firearms be allowed to carry on church property.
