Biden: Chicago Election Shows Voters Want More Gun Control


Vice President Joe Biden stated yesterday that gun control enthusiast Robin Kelly’s victory in the Chicago Democrat congressional primary is a sign that voters want stricter gun control and are turning against the all-powerful gun lobby.

“For the first time since Newtown, voters sent a clear unequivocal signal,” Biden told a group of state attorney generals, who were meeting in Washington.

The voters sent a message last night, not just to the NRA, but to the politicians all around the country. There will be a moral price as well as a political price to be paid for inaction,” Biden said.

Biden’s remarks were made to an audience of states’ attorney generals who were meeting in Washington D.C.
