EXCLUSIVE: Gun-Rights Leader Gottlieb Smacks Biden Gun Grab Scheme

Joe Biden
Joe Biden has long been hostile to the Second Amendment

U.S.A.-(Ammoland.com)- Never one to mince words, Alan Gottlieb, chairman of the Citizens Committee for the Right to Keep and Bear Arms (CCRKBA) issued a scathing news release about former Vice President Joe Biden’s “new” gun control scheme announced at a Nevada gun control forum, calling it “the same goal with a different sales pitch.”

But in an exclusive chat with Ammoland News, the veteran Second Amendment advocate, looking somewhat tongue-in-cheek at Biden’s current dilemma surrounding his son, Hunter’s involvement with a Ukranian gas and oil project while the elder Biden was vice president, wondered, “Maybe if we paid his son $50,000, like the Ukranians did, Joe might become a Second Amendment supporter.”

The younger Biden, according to published reports, was paid $50,000 a month by Burisma Holdings, the Ukranian energy firm. At the time, according to The Federalist, then-Vice President Biden “oversaw Ukraine policy for the Obama administration.” Conservative commentators are already raising the issue.

The Washington Examiner is suggesting “Biden's 2020 presidential campaign could be ‘blown up’ by suspicions over Joe's and his son Hunter's dealings with Ukraine, according to one of his top allies.”

But so far as Gottlieb is concerned, the real problem with the elder Biden is his long history of gun control.

“We all know that on the campaign trail Biden has been all touchy feely,” he said, adding this promise: “We are going to make sure that he keeps his hands off of our guns.”

The former vice president has been a “champion of every gun control scheme that came along” while he was serving on Capitol Hill. In a news release, Gottlieb noted Biden has frequently bragged about pushing the Clinton ban on semi-auto rifles and so-called “high capacity” magazines in the 1990s that studies later showed “had little to zero effect on violent crime rates.”

“Remember,” Gottlieb said, “this is the same Joe Biden who once famously counseled people to fire a double-barreled shotgun into the air from outside their house to scare away home invasion robbers. That’s not only illegal, it’s dangerous in a populated area. And this guy thinks he can tell us about ‘gun safety’ measures?”

Under Biden’s scheme, announced during a gun control forum in Nevada, semi-auto rifles would be regulated under the 1934 National Firearms Act, same as full-auto machine guns.

Owners would have the option of licensing and registration, or they could sell those firearms to the government. According to Gottlieb and CCRKBA, Biden’s plan still has the ultimate goal of eliminating ownership of the most popular rifle in America, today, and gun owners fear that’s just for starters.

“The Biden gun ban scheme falls right in line with the other Democrat presidential candidates’ goals of prohibition and confiscation,” Gottlieb asserted. “What we need to ban are assault politicians that have no respect for our rights guaranteed by the Second Amendment. We will get a chance to do that at the ballot box in 2020.”

Biden and other Democrats will have a problem selling any kind of “buyback” in the wake of Democrat presidential candidate “Beto” O’Rourke’s infamous threat last month to confiscate AR15 and AK47 rifles. As reported earlier by Ammoland News, the new FBI Uniform Crime Report for 2018 once again shows that a fraction of all homicides in the United States involve rifles of any kind. Biden and his contemporaries may try to ignore this, but it is a question that will keep coming up.

Gottlieb did give Biden a rather left-handed compliment. He said Barack Obama’s vice president is at least “consistent.”

“Biden has consistently voted against the rights of law-abiding gun owners,” he stated. “He has consistently pressed for gun control laws that have not prevented criminals from committing crimes with firearms that Biden’s laws said they shouldn’t have. He has consistently been wrong on Second Amendment issues. And now he’s offering a re-packaged version of gun control that he hopes will sound like a moderate compromise to the gun prohibition crowd.”

“Joe Biden has consistently ignored the fact that the Second Amendment protects a fundamental right, not a privilege that can be regulated by his, or anyone else’s gun control scheme.”—Alan Gottlieb, CCRKBA

As the campaign continues, with Sen. Bernie Sanders sidelined, at least for the moment, with heart-related problems, more people are looking at Biden’s age as a potential disqualifier. He is 76 years old, three years older than President Trump. But Biden commits gaffes, like during a speech in which he was attempting to associate Trump with white supremacists.

“We’re living through a rare moment in this nation’s history,” Biden asserted, “where our president isn’t up to the moment, where our president lacks the moral authority to lead, where our president has more in common with George Wallace than he does with George Washington.”

Perhaps Biden forgot that the late Gov. Wallace was a Democrat.

Such lapses led Gottlieb to observe in his chat with Ammoland News, “Unlike the Second Amendment, Biden is past his expiration date.”

“Biden is past his expiration date.” That date shudda been the day he signed up to run for ANY elected office! Does the other thing that nearly all the “Never Trumpers” do, he refers to President Trump as “Mr. Trump” in many of his denigrating references. He rarely uses the more respectful form of reference, President Trump! Biden shows he has little respect for the office of The President of The United States (this guy respects anyone or thing?). The whack can’t keep his mouth shut, or his teeth in!

This old buzzard has lost all of his senses, if he ever had any. Crazy Joe is not just a nickname, it is the truth. I think a red flag called on him would be appropriate if there were ever a time one should be used. He and the burn have been government dependants every since they became adults.

Uhh, maybe ‘for sale,’ but NOT to the gubment – and/or ONLY ‘confiscated,’ as Heston proclaimed, “From My Cold Dead Hands!” Brings gloves, ’cause more than a few will be too hot to handle when picked up…….

These crooked politicians should all get two terms, one in office and the other in prison. Their term in office must end NOW.

And the joke is on us. The $600,000 that Biden’s ne’er do well son got, was probably a tenth what Biden himself took out of the deal. Criminals all.

I’d like to see some verified numbers. Several have said he was paid $50,000 per month, but have heard reference to $80-$85,000? The China deal was $1.5 BILLION to that corrupt outfit on who’s board ole Hunter sat, wonder what his “commission” was for that?

As sad as it is to say, I highly doubt anything they deserve will come to them. Don’t you know Democrat’s can do no wrong? Just look at hitlary clinton! This woman should be on death row right now but these people have so much money, paying off to threatening to murder is just part of their lives. Even with the insanely disturbing and numerous photos and video of this obvious pedophile that people call “creepy joe” Still has the most support as the democratic presidential candidate when he should be investigated for human trafficking and raping children.

Pretty spot on ‘Stuck!’ Hope does spring eternal, as long as there is breath. However, in the case of this ‘over officious,’ ‘self-enriching,’ ‘bloated sow,’ government, I’ll not be holding my breath until the MUCH DESERVED “perp walks” of any and all connected to that “Clinton Crime Family” begin! All of those 17-18 “intelligence” agencies should be dismantled and reformulated to do ‘for the country,’ and NOT against it. You could start with that “corrupt CIA” outfit and just eliminate it completely!

I remember when “Uncle Joe,” while talking gun control with then President Barrack Obama, said we all should just get ourselves a shotgun. And now he wants to outlaw even peashooters. Every time the goal post moves, his ass is sure to follow: see hypocrisy.
