Joe Biden serves as a model for the imbeciles and dolts of America. Any person, no matter how thick, can grow up to become Vice President:
In an interview with Field & Stream magazine on Monday, Vice President Joe Biden once again touted shotguns as the best weapon for self-defense, offering advice similar to the questionable instructions he gave during a Facebook town hall last week.
During that interview, Biden explained his suggestion to his wife Jill for handling an intruder.
“If there’s ever a problem,” Biden said he told his wife, “just walk out on the balcony here— walk out, put that double barrel shot gun and fire two blasts outside the house.”
The problem with Biden’s advice is that it would empty the shotgun and possibly get the shooter in trouble with the law.
“I did one of these town-hall meetings on the Internet and one guy said, “Well, what happens when the end days come? What happens when there’s the earthquake? I live in California, and I have to protect myself.”
I said, “Well, you know, my shotgun will do better for you than your AR-15, because you want to keep someone away from your house, just fire the shotgun through the door.” Most people can handle a shotgun a hell of a lot better than they can a semiautomatic weapon in terms of both their aim and in terms of their ability to deter people coming. We can argue whether that’s true or not, but it is no argument that, for example, a shotgun could do the same job of protecting you.
Oscar Pistorius claims to have fired a gun through the door, and how’s that working out for him?
And, yes Mr. VP, we’ll have to argue about which weapon is easier to handle. I haven’t shot either one, but all reports I’m aware of confirm that a shotgun blast is a barely controlled explosion. The kick is enormous, and the spray of shot is wide and indiscriminating.
What is it with our Vice Presidents and shot guns? It’s a dangerous combination!
