Vice President Joe Biden continued his campaign for gun restrictions on Wednesday, telling NPR’s “All Things Considered” that the “black helicopter crowd” become paranoid when the government suggests universal gun registration.
“What is the downside of saying you can have clips with only 10 rounds in it?” Biden wondered. “What does that violate? Hunting? Sportsmanship? If you need more than 10-rounds to hunt — and some argue they hunt with that many rounds — you shouldn’t be out there hunting.”
Biden said needing more than three rounds to hit a deer means you’re an “embarrassment” as a hunter.
“You can’t get the deer in three shots? You shouldn’t be hunting. You’re an embarrassment,” he said.
He then returned to his regular refrain that his gun control proposals wouldn’t violate anyone’s constitutional rights.
“What am I doing to infringe upon your Sec… your constitutional right?” Biden asked rhetorically.
He then addressed the White House’s push for universal gun registration.
“When you go to [gun] registration, it raises all the black helicopter crowd notion that what this is all about is identifying who has a gun so that one day the government can get up and go the house and arrest everyone who has a gun, and they’ll cite Nazi Germany and all that.”
