Biden says guns will keep one safe. But that outgunning the bad guys is not something he promotes.

Because the bad guys vote DNC.

Someone send Joe the video of that chick on Hannity that showed the various rounds being fired.

Biden says there is “no reasonable societal justification, or constitutional justification” for having a so called “assault rifle.” Oh really?

There is “no reasonable societal justification, or constitutional justification” or moral justification for having Joe Biden either.

God, when I think of the child-like delight leftists used to have trashing Dan Quayle...

I don't know, personally I thought this was a good enough reason - LA Riots, 1992:

I'm reasonably certain this shopowner would agree.

Proving once again that liberals like slow joe are complete and utter morons. However he’s playing to a liberal crowd that has no clue just how much damage a gunman can cause with a shotgun.

Shoot a liberal in one knee with an “assault rifle” and put a 12 gauge slug in the other and ask them which is worse.

Check out the video of this trick shooter with a shotgun.

I suspect that liberals think there is this long involved process of firing, racking another round, and then a long involved loading process.

Personally, I’d rather face a man with an assault rifle than a 12 gauge.

I want the rifle to keep bad guys far enough away that they’re not in shotgun range, thank you very much, Uncle Joe.

Who would have sat out the last election had they known Great Leader’s first order of business would have been an assault on the Second Amendment?

Have Joe ask those Korean merchants that protected their property during the Rodney King riots. A shot gun at distance is much less intimidating than a AK or AR15! Plus there is a big difference in being able to fire six to eight rounds with a time consuming reload versus 30 rounds with a rapid magazine change. Biden continues to prove an inability to think logically, I guess that’s why he is lying plagiarist.

The November issue of the NRA’s Rifleman had a cover story warning us that O would launch an attack on the 2nd if he was reelected.

Slow Joe has apparently never heard the term “rat hole wound” - caused by a shotgun at close range, where the shot only spreads out a little bit.

My go to is my Benneli m4.

If the DNC’s main supporter, Hollywood starts driving nuts to using shot guns, he will want to ban them too.

Depends on the range. Buckshot’s only for reliable hits out to about 40 yards or so with most defense shotguns, and slugs (while they can hit out to 80 or 100 effectively) are much harder to employ effectively.

In close quarters, a shotgun is hell on wheels - many have said that the only thing better is a flamethrower - and it is extremely versatile. But the rifle allows for more standoff range and if your assailant can get that vs. you with s shotgun loaded with buckshot, he’s more likely to win.

By the way, that guy is using a shotgun that would be banned under the DiFi proposal.

Also, check out this lady load and shoot an old pump shotgun: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xbCjcEO9z1A

Shotguns and handguns are far preferred over rifles for these nutcases.

One thing I give thanks for is that the Sandy Hook nutjob decided on the AR-15 type and pistols instead of the other thing that was in the trunk of his car. They recovered a Saiga 12 shotgun, which at the distances to be expected inside a building is ridiculously devastating. There would have been a lot more dead kids and adults if he’d used that thing - and it would be a lot harder to defend against the even worse shrieks calling for bans.

Just a point of order - some of us have shotguns that don’t take nearly that long to reload with 5, 8, 10, 12, 19, 20, 30 etc., etc. Of course, they want to ban those too.

That’s a Saiga 12.

Yes I am aware of that, fine guns and a lot of fun, but as you pointed out I was thinking about what they envisioned for us.

Millions of democrat gun owners would vote for obama again even knowing he wanted to take their guns away. These people worship him and will do anything he tells them to do.
