Too much ammunition seldom a detriment
northjersey ^ | March 7, 2013 | Jim Hinton

I find it almost laughable, if it weren’t serious enough, the remarks Vice President Biden made in a TV interview regarding home security–even making it personal by mentioning what his wife should do to deter a home invasions. Paraphrasing, get a double-barreled shotgun, a 12-gauge, and walk out on the balcony and fire two blasts. That will deter anyone from coming in. You don’t need an "assault weapon;" they are not easy to operate, and you don’t need 30 rounds. Get a shotgun.

Having seen his wife on TV, she seems to be a small-statured, petite woman. And in applying Newton’s third law of motion–for every action there is an equal and opposite reaction–I supply the following. A 12-gauge 2 3/4-inch shotshell with a one-ounce load of lead pellets fired at 1,180 feet per second in a 7 1/2 pound shotgun results in a felt recoil of 17.3-foot pounds of energy striking your shoulder. In contrast, a 5.56-by-45 mm NATO (.223 Remington) cartridge with a 62-grain bullet fired at 3,025 feet per second from a 7-pound "assault rifle" results in a felt recoil of 3.9 foot pounds of energy striking your shoulder. I wonder which would be easier for a petite lady to use for self defense.

Additionally, firing two blasts off the balcony can get you arrested for illegal discharge of a weapon in a residential area. Perhaps even a charge of reckless endangerment for, after all, those pellets have to come down somewhere. Suppose that you have fired those two blasts and the intruders are not deterred. Now, with both barrels empty, you are armed with a very expensive club. All of this coming from a man who wants to enact more firearm regulations.

And, according to his statements on TV, no one needs 30 rounds of magazine capacity. I would hope that based upon Vice President Biden’s aforementioned expertise on personal protection, don’t bet the farm. I realize that every situation is different, but if you ask any combat veteran, law-enforcement individual, or private citizen that has been in a life-threatening situation involving a firearm, hearing click when you want to hear bang means trouble. There are only two times when having too much ammunition is a detriment–that is when the vehicle you are riding, flying or sailing in is on fire or when you are trying to swim.

Funny, in all the fire fights I’d ever been in in VietNam, I don’t remember anyone ever saying, “Gee, I wish we’d had less ammo.”

GUESS WHO THIS IS???

Former congressman and governor, Mike Castle (center), joined Delaware police officials, Governor Jack Markell (left), and Delaware Attorney General Beau Biden (right) at a Wednesday press conference in the Carvel State Office Building to voice his support for a bill that would expand the scope of background checks for the sale or transfer of firearms.
Indeed, it is Delaware's own Mike Castle!

SUPPORTING GUN CONTROL LEGISLATION!!! Lord I thought he was a Republican.

Notice Christine O'Donnell is NOT out and about trying to take away our guns.

And they wonder why we hate Mike Castle. Thank us for getting rid of the guy though us Delaware peons have suffered the wrath of the fine, fine Karl Rove for doing so.

But you can believe a SENATOR Castle, R-would be voting FOR gun control had we not threw his butt outta there.

Time for the McCain/Liindsay voters to do the same. (Photo: Courtesy of the Office of Gov. Jack Markell)  photo NewPicturehhhhh_zps70a31c6d.jpg

And after firing those two illegal warning shots, you have no ammo left.
Now the perp is pissed off and knows you can’t fight back.
Hope you know how to use an awkward club.

As the British Soldier said to his companion while shooting natives at Islanwana...”.Give ‘em a .577. Smash em, flatten out.!”

Companion says...”But the ammo runs out! The bloody spears don’t!”

From the movie ZULU DAWN.

Here’s a test for Joe. Let’s limit him to a single secret service agent, armed with a single double barrel shotgun.

I’d like to see a member of the press ask him that question in public and see what his answer would be.

How many of those idiots standing against the wall who are probably for gun control too, take their weapons home at night just in case?

John Dillinger’s 1911 converted to full auto and .38 Super, complete with a Thompson submachine gun forearm. “During the bank robber era, some guns-savvy outlaws had gunsmiths make select-fire handguns for them. In fact, an Arizona gunsmith created a full-auto 1911 .38 Super for John Dillinger, complete with vertical forearm. In the early days, it was no big deal. It wasn’t until the National Firearms Act of 1934 that machineguns were treated any differently than other firearms.” -— Patrick Sweeney "1911, The First 100 Years"

I see you showcased your practice ammo. The real stuff is still back on the pallet.

You must have a belt fed weapon. Make mine the M134D (aka GAU-17/A) 7.62 NATO Mini-gun. It sounds like a two speed chainsaw on steroids.
