Say What, Joe?

Joe Biden, on gun control:

Biden talked also about taking responsible action. “As the president said, if you’re [sic] actions result in only saving one life, they’re worth taking.

Really, Joe? Really? Saving one life is worth any price? Here are a few things off the top of my head that will not only save more than one life, but save many, many more lives than a silly ban on ‘assault weapons.’

  • Pull our troops out of the Middle East.
  • Ban swimming pools.
  • Implement some common sense car safety legislation (more on this later).
  • Order a serious study of the side effects of psychoactive drugs, and implement stricter controls on them.
  • Ban alcoholic beverages.
  • Ban hamburgers.
  • Free health care for all households with an income under $50,000/year. Subsidized low cost care for every household making under $75,000/year.

Some of these measures may sound pretty extreme to you (it’s silly to think that the government would risk angering the pharmaceutical industry), but it’s not me saying that they’re worthwhile; it’s the President and Vice President of the United States of America. Anything that might save even one life.
