usccbJoe Biden:

“Yesterday we finished up in this room with … 17 members of the faith community … [I]n all the years I have been doing this, the first time there has been an overwhelming consensus, from the evangelical groups nationwide, and particularly those in rural areas, to the National Conference of Catholic Bishops to the National Conference of Churches, the Muslim community, because this does have a significant moral dimension—how we make the American community safer and how we go about it.…”

That’s a nauseating little snippet on a number of counts, but let’s focus for a moment on the participation of the National Conference of Catholic Bishops. It will be very interesting indeed to hear what they have to say. After all, we have heard a lot from them recently about the (supposed) threat to their First Amendment rights from Obamacare’s contraception mandate.

Let’s hope that they are just as assiduous in their defense of the Second.

    The invention of firearms coincides almost exactly with the decline in influence of the Catholic Church, and the expansion of our modern concepts of liberty in the West. It’s no surprise that an organization whose primary power derives from its sheer size, would support restricting the ability of individuals to fight tyranny.
