“Buy a shotgun, buy a shotgun,” the vice president encouraged those worried about defending themselves. He was speaking in an online video as part of a Facebook town hall hosted by Parents Magazine on the administration’s strategy for reducing gun violence, which he has led at the direction of President Barack Obama.
Biden said he keeps two shotguns and shells locked up at home and he’s told his wife, Jill, to use them if she needs protection. He presumably was speaking about before he became vice president, a position that gives the couple full-time Secret Service protection.
“I said, ‘Jill, if there’s ever a problem, just walk out on the balcony … take that double-barrel shotgun and fire two blasts outside the house,'” Biden said. “You don’t need an AR-15. It’s harder to aim, it’s harder to use and in fact, you don’t need 30 rounds to protect yourself.”
Obviously Mr. Biden is not familiar with safe gun handling practices. He has advised his wife to “take that double-barrel shotgun and fire two blasts outside the house”. This buffoon has Secret Service protection. Why would he tell his wife to pull out a shotgun and just fire two blasts. She could kill one of the people there to protect them. I don’t know about you, but I have no intention of taking self defense advice from a moron like Joe Biden.
