Vice president Joe Biden this morning compared many gun owners to car lovers. “They just like the feel of that AR-15 at the range,” he explained, “it’s like driving a Ferrari.”
Biden distinguished gun owners who shoot at a range from hunters, whom he described as responsible gun owners. “There is a whole new sort of group of individuals now who – I don’t know what the numbers are – that never hunt at all,” Biden said, expressing concern over the latter group.
Biden participated in a conversation with gun owners on MSNBC’s Morning Joe as a part of the administration’s push for gun-control legislation in the wake of December’s mass shooting in Newtown, Conn.
