From ABC news. Vice President Joe Biden said Tuesday that Americans don’t need semi-automatic weapons to protect their homes because a couple of blasts from a shotgun will scare off intruders.

“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.

  1. I saw this video and could not believe that someone such as the Vice President had no clue what he was talking about. It seems to me that mostly everyone who want to get rid of these “Assault” weapons has absolutely no clue about firearms in the first place. That is problem number one. Secondly, Joe Biden taking about shotgun is easier to aim, you do not aim a shotgun, you point it. Third, if you have a double barrel shotgun and fire two shells.. that leaves you defenseless because you just shot the only 2 shell you had loaded, unless you can reload fast enough. Why do we have people that so high up there in government and they have no clue what they are talking about?

  2. He and Obama should order the secret service to start carrying double barreled shot guns from now on, they should also give warning shots before shooting someone.

  3. Just a Shotgun!

    You’re sound asleep
    when you hear a thump outside your bedroom door.

    Half-awake, and nearly paralyzed with
    fear,you hear muffled whispers.

    At least two people have broken
    into your house and are moving your way.

    With your heart pumping, you reach
    down beside your bed and pick up your shotgun.

    You rack a shell into the chamber, then
    inch toward the door and open it.

    In the darkness, you make out two shadows.

    One holds something that looks like a crowbar.

    When the intruder brandishes it as if to
    strike, you raise the shotgun and fire.

    The blast knocks both thugs to the floor.

    One writhes and screams while the
    second man crawls to the front door and lurches

    As you pick up the telephone to
    call police, you know you’re in trouble.

    In your country, most guns were outlawed
    years before, and the few that are privately
    owned are so stringently regulated as to make
    them useless..

    Yours was never registered.

    Police arrive and inform you that the second burglar has died.

    They arrest you for First Degree Murder and Illegal
    Possession of a Firearm.

    When you talk
    to your attorney, he tells you not to worry:
    authorities will probably plea the case down to

    “What kind of sentence
    will I get?” you ask.

    “Only ten-to-twelve years,” he replies, as if that’s

    “Behave yourself, and you’ll be out in seven.”

    The next day, the shooting is the lead story in
    the local newspaper. Somehow, you’re
    portrayed as an eccentric vigilante while the
    two men you shot are represented as choirboys.

    Their friends and relatives can’t find
    an unkind word to say about them..

    Buried deep down in the article,
    authorities acknowledge that both “victims” have
    been arrested numerous times.

    But the next day’s headlinesays it all:

    “Lovable Rogue Son Didn’t Deserve to Die.”

    The thieves have been transformed from
    career criminals into Robin Hood-type

    As the days wear on, the story takes wings.

    The national mediapicks it up, then the
    international media.

    The surviving burglar has become a folk hero.

    Your attorney says the thief is
    preparing to sue you, and he’ll probably win.

    The mediapublishes reports
    that your home has been burglarized several
    times in the past and that you’ve been critical
    of local police for their lack of effort in
    apprehending the suspects.

    After the last break-in, you told your neighbor that you
    would be prepared next time.

    The District Attorney uses this to allege that you
    were lying in wait for the burglars.

    A few months later, you go to trial.

    The charges haven’t been reduced, as your lawyer had
    so confidently predicted.

    When you take the stand, your anger at the injustice of it all
    works against you..

    Prosecutors paint a
    picture of you as a mean, vengeful man.

    It doesn’t take long for the jury to
    convict you of all charges.

    The judge sentences you to life in prison.

    This case really happened.

    On August 22, 1999, Tony Martin of Emneth, Norfolk , England ,
    killed one burglar and wounded a second.

    In April, 2000, he was convicted and is
    now serving a life term…

    How did it become a crime to defend one’s own life in the
    once great British Empire ?

    It started with the Pistols Act of 1903.

    This seemingly
    reasonable law forbade selling pistols to minors
    or felons and established that handgun sales
    were to be made only to those who had a license.

    The Firearms Act of 1920expanded licensing to
    include not only handguns but all firearms
    except shotguns..

    Later laws passed in 1953 and 1967outlawed the carrying
    of any weapon by private citizens and mandated
    the registration of all shotguns.

    Momentum for total handgun
    confiscation began in earnest after the
    Hungerfordmass shooting in 1987.

    Michael Ryan, a mentally disturbed man with a
    Kalashnikov rifle, walked down the streets
    shooting everyone he saw.

    When the smoke cleared, 17 people were dead.

    The British
    public, already de-sensitized by eighty years of
    “gun control”, demanded even tougher
    (The seizure
    of all privately owned handguns was the
    objectiveeven though Ryan used
    a rifle.)

    Nine years later, at Dunblane ,
    Scotland , Thomas Hamilton used a semi-automatic
    weapon to murder 16 children and a teacher at a
    public school.

    For many years, the media
    had portrayed all gun owners as mentally
    unstable, or worse, criminals.
    Now the presshad a real kook with
    which to beat up law-abiding gun owners.
    Day after day, week after week, the
    mediagave up all pretense
    of objectivity and demanded a total ban on all
    The Dunblane Inquiry, a few months later,
    sealed the fate of the few sidearms still owned
    by private citizens.

    the years in which the British government
    incrementally took away most gun rights, the
    notion that a citizen had the right to armed
    self-defense came to be seen as vigilantism.

    Authorities refused to grant gun licenses to
    people who were threatened, claiming that
    self-defense was no longer considered a reason
    to own a gun.
    Citizens who shot burglars or robbers or rapists were charged
    while the real criminals were released.

    Indeed, after the Martin
    shooting, a police spokesman was quoted as
    “We cannot have people take the law
    into their own hands.”

    All of Martin’s neighbors had been robbed numerous times,

    and several elderly people were severely
    injured in beatings by young thugs who had no
    fear of the consequences.
    Martin himself, a collector of antiques, had seen most of his
    collection trashed or stolen by burglars.

    When the Dunblane Inquiry
    ended, citizens who owned handguns were given
    three months to turn them over to local

    Being good British subjects,
    most people obeyed the law.
    The few who didn’t were visited by police and threatened
    with ten-year prison sentences if they didn’t

    Police later bragged that they’d
    taken nearly 200,000 handguns from private

    How did the authorities know who had handguns?
    The guns had been registered and licensed.
    Kind of like cars.
    Sound familiar?

    rather an irate, tireless minority keen to set
    brush fires in people’s minds..”

  4. If you follow Biden’s advice – you’re felony stupid. Recklessly firing off two un-aimed rounds out a window can kill innocent people, regardless of how tactically unsound that approach is.

    For once, I kind of sort of almost agree w/ Biden. People *that* stupid (i.e. HIM) should definitely not own guns!

    Luckily, the average law-abiding gun owner is about 100 IQ points above that clown.

    1. If Biden actually believes a double barrel shotgun is a better home defense tool than an AR-15, he is as stupid as a chicken.

    1. I’m sure Sheriff Joe will show us how stupid a person can be!

      He does it every week, personally.

  5. The sad part is that he thinks he is the smart one and that we’re all stupid enough to believe what he says.
