BIDEN: We’re counting on ‘legitimate media’ for successful gun control effort…

(Washington Examiner) – During a press conference on gun safety in Philadelphia, Vice President Joe Biden said that any reports that suggest that he was trying to take away gun owners weapons was a “bunch of malarkey.”

“To be very blunt with you, we’re counting on all of you, the legitimate news media to cover these discussions because the truth is that times have changed,” Biden added, warning that people would continue to “misrepresent” the White House suggestions for gun control as unconstitutional.

“The social media that exists out there, the tragedies that have occurred, the Supreme Court decision affirming that its an individual right to bear arms – all give a lie to the argument that what we’re trying to do is somehow unconstitutional, or somehow goes after the legitimate right to own and bear arms and to hunt and protect yourselves.” Biden added.
