Former Vice President Joe Biden recently appeared on NBC’s Today. He was asked about the horrific Texas church attack that left 26 people dead when a madman opened fire on the congregation. Biden was asked about the hero who stopped the attacker, Stephen Willeford. His response is raising eyebrows, to say the least:

“Well, first of all, the kind of gun being carried he shouldn’t be carrying.”

His response came in response to an audience member who was asking how Democrats can justify pushing gun control when it was clearly the presence of a gun in the hands of Willeford that ended the attack.

On November 6 Texas officials credited Willeford with ending the attack.

That’s right. If Joe Biden had his way, Willeford never would have had his gun in the first place. Then who knows what else would have happened.

Willeford is a former NRA instructor and NRA member. He ran out of his house with his AR-15 in his hand, took cover, and shot the killer Devin Kelley as he walked out of the church. Kelley fled, only to crash and die 15 minutes later. Here is the whole exchange with Biden:

“On Today, audience member Brianna asked, ‘How do you justify the Democrat view on gun control when the shooter was stopped by a man who was legally licensed to carry a gun?’

“Biden replied, ‘Well, first of all, the kind of gun being carried he shouldn’t be carrying.’ He then specifically mentioned ‘assault weapons’ and said, ‘I wrote the last serious gun control law that was written, it was law for 10 years. And it outlawed assault weapons and it outlawed weapons with magazines that had a whole lot of bullets, as you can kill a whole lot of people more quickly.’

“He added, ‘Number two, it’s just rational to say certain people shouldn’t have guns. Now the fact that some people with guns are legally able to acquire a gun and they turn out to be crazy after the fact, that’s life. There’s nothing you can do about that.’”

Yes, this really just happened:

    joe biden………….DUH..!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • “Absurdist” … I like that. It absolutely describes the leftist mindset.

  • Joe Biden continues to be a MORON! Period! They, whoever they are say he s a great guy and they may be right if he’s a guy you want to have a drink with but to run our country? ARE YOU FRIGGIN KIDDING ME!

    • DUTCHIET

      Please tell what do you have in the White House now?
      Certainly no genius by any stretch. He is nothing but an embarrassment to the great country and someone who nobody want to have a drink with because he will have you pay the tab

      • Dale Netherton

        A man who created a real estate empire and kept that crone out of the White House deserves nothing but praise.

      • DUTCHIET

        Dale, Please do some research of his past it is that of a man whose only strength is lying and hiring very good minds to run his business. When ever he is allowed to run his businesses they all failed. In fact, he has had to give up any control over many of his project or the banks would have foreclosed. And that is the truth, Look it up/
        Bankruptcy, is the only tool he mastered, to the point he was unable to get a loan from any US bank. That is why he is in bed with Russia, them are flush with cash and he is only too happy to laundry it for them .
        Open your eyes it is all there all you have to is read. One of the reason he refuses to release his tax report is because it will show he is not as wealthy as he keeps telling people. He will not need a telethon by any means but he had serious financial problem until he got elected.
        His only concern is and always has been and that is “the Donald”

    Biden was never qualified to be vice president.

    • markypolo

      dan: Neither was his Boss. But what to expect from a party of idiots and morons?

  • buster

    If Biden thought he was going to be the democrats presidential candidate he JUST BIT THE DUST…..

    • markypolo

      Not so fast buster. Joe Biden could be a convicted serial killer, Democrats would still flock to vote for him. Look how they protected the Clintons and Kennedy’s. Liars, crooks and Thieves will stick together to the very end.

  • DonRS

    Joe Biden is one of the dumbest men on the planet. Obama picked him to be VP so he would have no competition – and it clearly worked. People I respect, who knew “old Joe, the clown”, long ago, back in Rhode Island can only marvel at Joe’s low IQ. His gaffes are legendary. Just as are his “roaming hands” with the ladies, many caught on film!

    • DUTCHIET

      FYI
      Joe Biden is from Delaware

      • DonRS

        Indeed, my fingers tapped the keyboard too quickly. Both Biden and the people I spoke of, who knew of Biden’s stupidity, were from Wilmington, Delaware!

      • DUTCHIET

        if you think Biden is stupid, which he is not, he just has a great sense of humour, then what is you opinion of Trump the 2 Minute Man

      • DonRS

        I’m certain Biden is stupid and he is a clown. He has proven it, over and over! “Stand up Joe, oh wait, Joe is in a wheel chair.” Biden is also a pervert, pawing women, again and again, captured on film!

        Trump is stupid like a fox and you will rue the day you think he is! Maybe you only hear and view FAKE NEWS MEDIA, but the country has moved forward, handsomely, as a result of his very presence, straight talk and strength in the face of EVIL liberal’s all out assault and the resistance of Obama’s embedded SWAMP RATS treasonous actions.

        Trump’s triumphant trip to Asia, just ending, is another example that he is respected by our foreign adversaries. Our spineless “allies” whine and moan, but are equally fearful of his ability and success!

        He will be re-elected in 2020 in a LANDSLIDE!

      • DUTCHIET

        Your opinion of Biden is incorrect because you are mistakenly taking a sense of humor for stupidity. But that is your choice.
        Please Trump is not smart as a fox. Please do some research of his past is that of a man whose only strength is lying and hiring very good minds to run his business. When ever he is allowed to run his businesses they all failed. In fact, he has had to give up any control over many of his project or the banks would have foreclosed/

      • DonRS

        You don’t value my opinion and I don’t value yours. But our exchanges have been respectful – that’s good.

        Time and results will demonstrate which of us is correct. So far, the evidence is I’m correct!

        Stay tuned!

      • DUTCHIET

        If you know anything about business, and I mean anything, then you know having bankruptcy as your first line of defense is very bad. It is never be your go to strategy .Yes it is legal, but tell me how many times would you do business with someone like Trump, never knowing if you will get paid in full or maybe not at all ? It may be legal but it is not morally acceptable as a policy.
        And tell me why you are saying that the “corrupt” city leaders caused Trump’s problems? It is common knowledge that Trump mismanaged the operation that the banks insisted that he stop his involvement in the day to day operations. This has been repeated with just about every project that he personally was managing. His success’ have been when he has put the right people in charge and walks away. When he has been directly involved you know failure and bankruptcy follow like night follows day.
        This dealing with Russia will prove me right.But we will have to wait until the investigation is completed

      • DonRS

        “If I know anything….” You’re sanctimonious attitude is disgusting. You know nothing about me, NOTHING. I seriously doubt your business experience and level of responsibility in business comes close to matching mine.

        Where did I say, or how do you “know” that bankruptcy was Trump’s first line of defense? I didn’t and you don’t!

        Second, “how many times would you do business with someone like Trump, never knowing if you will get paid in full or maybe not at all?” Apparently, your vast knowledge of business does not include awareness of the number of companies that have filed for bankruptcy and are thriving, today, working with many suppliers!

        The trouble with “common knowledge” – its usually WRONG! Lack of specific knowledge of a situation allows people, maybe you, to get their only exercise – leaping to their preconceived sanctimonious conclusions.

      • DUTCHIET

        I am what “sanctimonious” because I challenge your business knowledge? Don, if you have all that business experience, why would you thing using bankruptcy so often is a good policy? Yes, some business’ come back, but to have bankruptcy as a major policy it not taught at WHARTON.
        My friend “common knowledge” may be the improper use of the term because not everyone has read of Trump’s past, so I apologize, but let me preface that by saying if you will take the time to read Trump past business dealing you will find out that he does have his strong points, mostly bulling. But he is not a very good business person and has failed many time because of his own incompetence. This is a fact, not my opinion and it is all in public records.
        Why are you avoiding answering my question about would you do business with such a person, one who doesn’t always pay his bills?

      • Mitch is Right

        Douchiette (little douche) – you must realize that you are indeed a leftist tool, truly a leftist IDIOT! You speak of concepts such as “legality” and “moral acceptability” but you vote for leftist democraps such as oblunder and corrupt hillary. All rank and file democrat voters are hypcrites!

      • DUTCHIET

        Mitch, Tell me does calling me names make you feel better about yourself? Or is that the only way you can argue a point? If you want to defend something name calling is about the least effective means. It makes you look very bad. You know like you have no argument and cannot prove a point , so if you call me names you must be right. Sorry but you are wrong and you make my point for me

    • Maybe Joe thinks he should have used a shotgun. Joe is Barry lite.

      • DonRS

        Very “lite”!

      • Joe M

        Well he was correct when he said “certain people shouldn’t have guns.” Like democrats, black and muslims. At least that would be a good start.

  • Bragar

    biden and obama had one thing in common-neither of them was qualified to run anything more than their mouths. Even then, pseudo intellectualism and moron speak took over…

    • Sue

      Two quotas filled. Half black and mentally challenged. This allowed easy manipulation by unelected outsiders.

    • TO BLACKS

      DID YOUR SON CRASH YET?

  • pmat33

    Joe Biden has always been a Democrat Court Jester…he just doesn’t recognize he is the joke.

  • DUTCHIET

    Did anyone read what Biden actually said? He said the shooter should not have had a semi auto gun. He was not referring to the hero who saved the day. Please get it right. Here is the quote from the article

    Well, first of all, the kind of gun being carried he shouldn’t be carrying.’ He then specifically mentioned ‘assault weapons’

    • jackw97224

      was asked about the hero who stopped the attacker, Stephen Willeford.

  • evcosports

    Biden is the Dumbest man ever to be VP or US Senator and that is saying a lot..

  • Pat Sugrue

    crazy Joe heck that will help if he runs get hillary in there too that will totally put the dems out of the race

  • markypolo

    LOL. Joe Biden was “unfit’ to be a Vice-President. But then look at the moron Democrats put in the White House for 8 years as President. This is the product of allowing idiots and morons (many with NO jobs/ government employees) to VOTE.
    A Country full of idiots and morons will eventually be ruled by one. I fear Donald Trump is but a respite from the eventual downfall.

  • jackw97224

    Biden is a loser and a plagiarist. Oh, and shoulda, hada, oughta, coulda, mighta are just plain stupid! Joe would rather we no be able to defend ourselves from violence/aggression. Oh, but wait, that is exactly what government is: violence, aggression, force. So of course, Biden wants us to be stinkin’ naggar slaves on his plantation state so that he and his brother and sister masters/politicos and their overseers/enforcers can control us. Yes, Biden wants us to be disarmed, just as all tyrants want the people disarmed.

    • deusexmachina1

      It’s people like him that convince me that I need to be armed now…more than ever…

  • deusexmachina1

    This walking zipper accident thinks that he’s always the smartest guy in the room…

    He could be alone and that still wouldn’t be possible…

  • peanut butter

    Uncle Joe has always been movin’ kinda slow.

  • reagangs

    And this is the guy that said to scare wild animals away, to just shoot a shot gun into the air while standing on your porch. Genius ????

  • JACK COLEMAN

    I hope he runs in 2020 😜😜😜😜😜😜😜

  • Frankiedoodle

    Biden truly is an idiot, isn’t he?

  • Esau’s Message

    He did not answer the question directly. He side stepped and kept side stepping, changing from one topic to another in under one minute. Moreover, his response was completely incoherent. It’s as if he were hitting bullet points. Uncle Joe is movin’ kinda slow at the conjunction.
