You know its bad when a presidential candidate makes fun of an American after asking a serious question. Biden never even said anything relateing to the question but make fun of him. Again they are always dodgeing the gun control issue untill they get in to cause havoc with us gun owners..

Its question 38 Are our "babies" safe?

QUESTION: Good evening, America. My name is Jered Townsend from Clio, Michigan.

To all the candidates, tell me your position on gun control, as myself and other Americans really want to know if our babies are safe.

This is my baby, purchased under the 1994 gun ban. Please tell me your views.

Thank you.

COOPER: Governor Richardson, you have one of the highest NRA ratings.

RICHARDSON: The issue here, I believe, is instant background checks.

RICHARDSON: Nobody who has a criminal background or is mentally ill should be able to get a weapon. That is the key, and that includes gun sales. That includes gun sales at gun shows.

The key is going to be also attacking poverty, bringing people together, dealing with those kids in the ghettos that are heavy users of gun violence and they are victims of gun violence, to make sure that this country attacks the core problems of poverty, having child care, bringing parents together.

COOPER: Senator Biden, are you going to be able to keep his baby safe?

BIDEN: I'll tell you what, if that is his baby, he needs help.


I think he just made an admission against self-interest. I don't know that he is mentally qualified to own that gun. I'm being serious. Look, just like me, we go around talking about people who own guns. I am the guy who originally wrote the assault weapons ban, that became law, and then we got defeated and then Dianne Feinstein went to town on it and did a great job.

BIDEN: Look, we should be working with law enforcement, right now, to make sure that we protect people against people who don't -- are not capable of knowing what to do with a gun because they're either mentally imbalanced and/or because they have a criminal record, and...


BIDEN: Anyway...


COOPER: We got one more question. Before...

BIDEN: ... I hope he doesn't come looking for me.


Thanks to G3 for the video clip.

your welcome...that is very wrong how they show how they feel about us...i guess we are all crazy to them.
That guy opened himself up with that that kind of comment... referring to an inanimate object as his baby isn't really rational. We excuse it routinely, but in the case of an object that is a part of some controversy, the wise owner would never refer to it publicly as his baby.

I won't say that Biden was right to jump on it like that, I suspect he's got no more of a clue than does Obama or Hillary.
Agreed Tech, that guy was a tool and a fool considering the seriousness of the subject and his one time in life opportunity to not only represent himself but all of us gun owners on a nationally featured platform.

Thanks alot idiot boy.
You've given the haters and the confused yet another piece of mental ammunition to load into their own anti gun & gun owner guns.

Come on people, you have to freaking think and use tact.
There is a place and a time for everything and this was neither the place nor the time for what I'm sure he thought was a clever little ploy.
He was not clever.

Yeah, I know im sure they picked that comment for that reason in the first place it was not a good idea what he did. Still makeing fun of the public who your counting on to get you in? Yeah I know who this asshole is and I know he has no chance at winning but still that was bull shit.
I was listening to the news in the background and just happened to turn and look at the TV when he said are my babies protected and the first thing I thought was, Oh hell this is the wrong guy to be presenting a gun question for the whole U.S. to see. The voice and efforts of millions of responsible gun owners can be silenced by one idiot :(
