Skip to comments.Vice President Biden doubles down on his bad advice
Posted on 02/28/2013 9:15:29 AM PST by JohnPierce
What is it with vice presidents and shotguns? I mean, Dick Cheney may have accidentally shot someone in a display of poor firearms handling, but at least he never claimed that it was a good idea to do so.
But despite being thoroughly lambasted for last weeks illegal advice to shoot wildly into the air from ones balcony, good ol Joe is back with more advice for those who are tired of living outside of prison.
In an interview with Field & Stream he made the following jaw-droppingly stupid statement.
Well, you know, my shotgun will do better for you than your AR-15, because [if] you want to keep someone away from your house, just fire the shotgun through the door.
Now I know what you are thinking.
You are asking yourself whether or not you are reading a satire article from The Onion.
But amazingly enough, you are not.
A sitting vice president of the United States actually offered that advice to American citizens.
There is so much wrong with his statement that I hardly know where to begin. But since there are those who are unfamiliar with self-defense laws and might actually take the Vice President at his word, I feel I should do a quick two-point legal analysis for you.
1) You do not have the right to use deadly force merely to keep someone away from your house.
That is not self-defense, it is murder.
2) Even when you otherwise might be facing a legitimate threat, you cannot fire blindly through a door without knowing who or what is on the other side.
That is not self-defense, it is reckless endangerment!
So unless you want to enjoy several years of BidenCare wherein you receive free meals, medical care, and housing courtesy of the prison system in your state, I would suggest you ignore what Joe has to say about self-defense.
You know many pro-gun advocates like to say that the reason anti-gun advocates are so afraid of gun ownership is because they know that they themselves would not handle the responsibility well. Joe seems to be the living example of that hypothesis.
So where will he go from here? What will be the next gem to fall from his lips?
I dont know
but I do know this
I would much rather go duck hunting with Dick Cheney than ring the doorbell at Bidens house.
I’d rather go shooting with Dick Cheney than Joe Biden any day in the week.
This could actually be a fun thread, if folks were to try and come up with the Veep’s next talking point.
Let’s see. 1) Shoot the shotgun in the air, 2) An AR-15 is hard to handle, 3) Shoot the shotgun through the door. That means the next statement is about your AR-15. Hmmm...something like, “Your AR-15 is useless, because 30 rounds lets you kill a guy 100 times, and you might hit an innocent (criminal) bystander just like Cheney did!”
Good Hunting... from Varmint Al
Joe can’t stop talking about the merits of using a shotgun for home defense. So is he ready to propose legislation allowing the use shotguns everywhere in the U.S.?
Lol. It COULD be a fun thread but the scary thing is that, no matter how outrageous the things we guess, I suspect his next comment will be even wilder.
When I read this, all I could envision were the mutilated bodies of Avon representatives littering the landscape of our country. Girl Scouts selling cookies?
If we followed Moochelle's eating advice we would look like this:
If we actually ATE what moochelle eats we would look like this:
The moral of the story... Don't trust the advice of Democraps.
I’ll wait until the bad guy is inside. I don’t want his innards all over my purty lawn.
When is *someone* in DC going to publicly state that AR15 is THE militia weapon; and ALL able bodied adults are automatically members of the militia. It is what we use to defend ourselves from a tyrannical government. 30 round magazines are essential, not a luxury.
Shooting criminals with them is fun, but not the primary reason we own them.
Joe sez: "If you shoot an intruder on your porch with a high caliber AR 15 with a 30 round clip, the body will be in so many pieces that it makes it impossible to drag the body into the house. Jeez man. Do I have to do the thinking for everybody?"
And, this is a surprise to whom!??
Perhaps that is what Biden sees when he closes his eyes. That would explain the slightly crazed look he constantly has.
