Ol' Joe has done spake. He says he's foursquare against a new "assault weapons" ban. Universal background checks, now that, he's kinda for.
Oooo, C for effort pard, but you failed the course. And thanks for playing. Next!
I woke up thinking maybe I'd been a little harsh -- after all, he is a Democrat. It's only fair to go to the Senator's own website and see what he has to say for himself. Answer: not much. Exactly zero on him opposing a new AWB and about background checks, this: "...the National Instant Criminal Background Check System,[...]. That system still
does not work as well as it should and should be examined again in the
coming weeks." And he led that off with a wistful observation about how the two parties came together in the aftermath of the Virgina Tech shootings to beef up NICS.
C'mon, Joe, you can do better. Do you want to be the long-term Senator from Indiana, or another there-and-gone fluke?
