Vice President Joe Biden has shown his utter stupidity in comments regarding firearms. I suppose politicians like Biden who live their lives lying, cheating and BSing those they are supposed to serve just have no concept of reality because they live in the Washington, D.C. make believe world. Recently his comments regarding shotguns have demonstrated he has not idea what he is talking about and furthermore gives advice that could get people killed.
Some women took Joe “Shotgun” Biden’s advice about trying out a shotgun….this was the result.
Notice the ease of use for women using the AR-15!
Now, following the tragic circumstances surrounding Blade Runner Oscar Pistorius, who has said he shot through a door and killed his girlfriend by accident, Biden has suggested that women take that shotgun, which the video demonstrates is a bit much for the common female to handle, and just point it at the door and shoot through the door.
Field and Stream website provides the interview where “Shotgun” Joe gives out this piece of advice:
F&S: What about the other uses, for self-defense and target practice?
BIDEN: Well, the way in which we measure it is—I think most scholars would say—is that as long as you have a weapon sufficient to be able to provide your self-defense. 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. Now, granted, you can come back and say, “Well, a machine gun could do a better job of protecting me.” No one’s arguing we should make machine guns legal.
While I think a 12 gauge shotgun is a wonderful home defense weapon, Biden’s advice not only is used to take aim at the Second Amendment, but it puts the lives of women in danger, not to mention the fact that you never know who is behind the door you are firing through. If you have the ability to know, that is one thing, but the issue surrounding what Biden is talking about is not just protecting a home. The issue of the Second Amendment is preserving a free state. On this issue Biden is wrong, dead wrong.
I’m sure he’ll continue promoting the shotgun for women though, even though the overwhelming evidence is that ARs are much easier for women to handle and fire. Sorry Joe, your rhetoric has melted my BS meter.Don't forget to Like Freedom Outpost on Facebook and Twitter, and follow our friends at RepublicanLegion.com.
