Not From the Onion: Biden Says He Is “Shooting for Tuesday” on Gun Control Recommendations — But Cautions That “There’s No Silver Bullet”
Vice President Joe Biden culminated a week of meetings on gun policy Friday, telling representatives of the video game industry that “there’s no silver bullet” when it comes to confronting gun violence.
. . . .
“I’m shooting for Tuesday,” he said. “I hope I get it done by then.”
Biden added that he hopes that Congress will “pull the trigger” on new gun legislation, but added that he was afraid Republicans would “stick to their guns” and oppose new measures. When asked if he was serious, Biden replied: “Sure as shootin’!”

Don’t believe me? Let me Google that for you.
