Obama Blesses Anti-Gun Biden Run

posted on August 26, 2015

Hillary Clinton’s inability to gain the public’s trust amidst scandal is keeping the door open for other Democrats to enter the race for president in the 2016 elections.

Now, a “senior Democrat” told CNN that Vice President Joe Biden has received President Obama’s blessing to make a bid for the White House. Biden has been meeting with several Obama fundraisers; it’s conceivable that, there being no love lost between Obama and the Clintons, they’ve kept their powder dry awaiting Obama’s blessing on a successor. 

Gun owners know Biden as a staunch, if careless, opponent of gun rights. He was Obama’s choice to head the Gun Violence Prevention Task Force, which lost the Senate fight for universal background checks, and he opposed the Protection of Lawful Commerce in Arms Act. He also supports bans on so-called “assault weapons” and standard-capacity magazines, once infamously advising Americans to just “buy a shotgun” and fire it into the air.
