Biden criticizes gun owners who are not hunters: ‘They like the way it feels…it’s like driving a Ferrari’

“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. “But they own guns for one of two reasons, self-protection or they just like the feel of that AR-15 at the range. They like the way it feels.”

Biden imitated holding a weapon and added, “You know, it’s like driving a Ferrari, Do you know what I mean?”

“My impression is there’s not the same sort of cultural norm about gun ownership with a lot of people who are buying guns now,” Biden added recalling a dinner he attended in Delaware sponsored by the “White Neck Hunting Club.”

    Of course we “like the way it feels”. It’s called recreational shooting. Same reason people go skiing or learn to cook as gourmets or have sex. I say that as one who has never hunted and doesn’t plan to start.

    It isn’t Biden’s call to make. He’s a temporary politician. The Constitution is permanent. By the way why would a hunting club invite Biden to a dinner?
