Vice President Joe Biden assured gun-rights advocates that the federal government would not create a federal “central registry” containing gun owners’ personal information if Congress passes universal background check legislation.

Biden also called an effort by a group of Republican senators to block gun control legislation “embarrassing” and “mind boggling.”

“There is no record kept in some big database,” Biden said, holding an example of a background check form at the White House on Tuesday alongside Attorney General Eric Holder.

“No record’s kept of your name. No record’s kept of your request…no central registry for anything.”

The former Delaware senator continued to downplay the concerns of gun control critics, saying, “No way that Uncle Sam can go find out whether you own a gun because we’re about to really take away all your rights and you’re not going to be able to defend yourself and we’re going to swoop down with special forces folks and gather up every gun in America. It’s bizarre.”

Biden asked the audience of law enforcement officials to “imagine” what the leaders of other countries are thinking about a Republican threat to block any gun control legislation in the Senate.

“I served in the Senate for 36 years and you’ve got 13 senators including the minority leader saying I will filibuster proceeding on dealing with this national tragedy,” said Biden.

“What an embarrassing thing to say. Imagine what they’re saying in other capitals around the world today. I’m being serious now. Just close your eyes and imagine. The rest of the world follows everything we do.”

This is one of the few times that Biden is telling the truth. They don't want a guns registry. They want all the guns. The registry, insurance, all those are merely steps toward achieving the goal of total disarmament and subjugation of the American people.

A list is not the objective! The progressives want to establish a mechanism that makes ownership of a new gun dependent on receiving "permission." Few of us are wondering, "permission" from who?
Assume the existence of "universal background checks," and then assume another mass killing. Obama's first action would be to order the suspension of all additional back ground check approval until the investigation is final.
I can imagine Assad in his bunker saying, "Damn, why didn't we think of background checks and dis-arming all those crazy traitors?"

First the German government registered all the firearms, next they confiscated them, then they rounded up all the disarmed Jews, finally they murdered them. It couldn't have happened... but it did.

It all started with a politician like J.Biden saying, "Hey..."

If you believe that you'll believe anything". As in " I did not have sex with That woman".

Members of this Obama socalled democratic Administration miss no opportunity to display their contempt for the citizens and the nation they "represent".

Why should they? They follow the footsteps of "democratic" politicians who seem to have a lock on high places in the PARTY. A proper Freemasonry?

As model Edward Kennedy whose true character was FINALLY made public when Chappaquiddick forced it from the media praetorians. After which hors de combat for the brass ring his place as lifelong Father of the Senate, with all inherent powers to CHANGE the nation.

The Kennedy surrogate WJ Clinton. Governor of Arkansas witih spouse Hillary whose personal and political histories dared not see the spotlight of day. Et Voila the path prepared for the finale of their production: BH Obama and Joseph Biden. With insurance for Hillary, Kennedy surrogate once removed, as heir presumptive as Secretary of State in Obama's Executive Offices.

You'd think Americans would be bored up to their teeth with these same people as their spokespersons. Are ther no fresh faces in that PARTY?

Seems Americans like to be "taken for a ride". They after all elect these people one time and EVEN after knowing the methods and goals of these thugs elect them again

AND AGAIN.

Why not that finger in the face, that poke in the eye if not worse from these "representatives of the People"? Who obviously know their people.

Of course, they will never have a big database because as soon as they feel they have nearly every gun registered (or near enough), they'll use it to confiscate the guns. Then they won't need it, so they won't have it. Or, they may have it, but since no one on it will be a gun owner anymore, it technically won't be that registry anymore.

And why is it exactly that we should care what the rest of the world thinks about how we run our internal affairs?

And there's no way Uncle Sam can find out if you own a gun? Right now there isn't. If the little Progs get their way there will be. They won't keep records. Of course not. And they won't give access to the data to people who would like they did as reported on Fox News today that the EPA acknowledges releasing personal details on farmers and ranchers to environmental groups.

Nope. You can trust the Government. They never lie and they never go back on their promises. Ever.

Sure.

Just read that Jo-Jo is mocking the "black helicopter crowd" about gun confiscation.

JoJo- here are a couple reasons for doubting your word.

1. The most transparent administration in America's history. Although those were the divider in chief's words, I see nowhere that you have ever challenged that lie.

2. Affordable Healthcare Act (aka obamacare): that monstrosity is anything but affordable. It will cripple healthcare for decades and we may NEVER recover from it's interference even if it's repealed. I know you gub'mnt types could care less, you have us to extort your healthcare costs from.

Tell me again why anyone should believe you?

IF everyone follows what we do, and not viseversa, then their citizens should all be armed and free of fear from their government. Hmmm, not so?
