Joe Bidenís Self-Defense Advice
Townhall.com ^ | March 3, 2013 | Daniel J. Mitchell

Good ol’ Uncle Joe.

Given his chief role as national laughingstock, the Vice President attracts plenty of abuse. I like this caption contest, which led to a clever winning entry.

Here’s an amusing joke (with the naughty word redacted), and the late-night talk shows have produced some good one liners about the Veep hereherehere, and here.

And let’s not forget the laughs we all enjoyed when he asserted that paying higher taxes was patriotic.

But Biden has reached new levels on unintentional humor with his recent advice on home defense, all of which appears to be illegal according to fellow Bulldog Mary Katherine Ham.

This video, which has been a viral phenomenon, looks at the practical implications of arming some people with 12-gauge shotguns.

Buy a Shotgun Joe Biden Lying AR-15

This is amusing, though it’s actually not that funny when you realize that this clown is in charge of the task force putting together gun control proposals for the Obama Administration.

By the way, if you like humorous videos dealing with gun control, here are my favorites.

P.S. And if you want serious videos about gun control, you can access several options by clicking here.

Colorado School Official Courageously Rescues Community from Vicious 7-Year Old Terrorist

While writing yesterday about a bureaucrat who might need to give up doggie day care service for his pet because of make-believe “deep spending cuts,” I mentioned that we need something akin to a medal-of-honor award for bureaucrats who endure untold suffering.

In that same spirit, we need some sort of national award for school officials who engage is spectacular acts of heroism to save their communities from the youth brigade of al Qaeda.

If we had this kind of award, some of the past winners would include:

And if we had such an award, Valerie Lara-Black might have an early favorite for the 2013. What did Ms. Lara-Black do to put herself in position for such a high honor? Well, she went above and beyond the call of duty.

A 7-year-old Mary Blair Elementary School student says he’s confused about getting in trouble…Thompson School District officials contend that the boy broke one of the school’s “absolutes.” Parent Mandie Watkins said Mary Blair principal Valerie Lara-Black called her Friday afternoon to inform her that her second-grade son, Alex, had been suspended.

Colorado Grenade Kid

Another thwarted terrorist!

What did this nascent young criminal do? What horrid offense against the community did he commit? Why was he suspended?

…for throwing an imaginary grenade during recess on the playground. Alex did not have anything in his hand at the time and made no threats toward other people, Watkins reportedly was told.

Thank goodness that Ms. Lara-Black was able to nip this crisis in the bud. Showing a mastery of bureaucracy, she quickly deployed her school’s policy against play weapons and she decided that an imaginary play weapon was just as dangerous as a real play weapon.

The rules are laid out by Mary Blair Elementary School in a list of “absolutes” that are posted on the school’s website and are aimed at making Mary Blair a safe environment. Included in those absolutes are no physical abuse or fighting – real or play – and the no-weapons absolute also covers real or play weapons.

I hope the school also has a policy against playing tag as well. After all, that’s a militaristic game that sometimes involves aggressive touching.

And if the kids play kickball during recess, I hope there’s a rule that all games end in ties so there are no winners and losers (or perhaps just require the kids to play soccer, where all games seem to end in scoreless ties anyway).

You can’t be too careful. It takes a lot of care and planning, after all, to raise the next generation of social workers!

Though I am a bit surprised that this happened in Colorado. The folks I’ve met at the High Lonesome Ranch, for instance, obviously were not lobotomized and emasculated while at school, so perhaps mind-numbing stupidity is a recent phenomenon in the state.

At least this type of thinking hasn’t spread to Texas, where policymakers are more likely to let teachers carry guns rather than turn them into enforcers of political correctness.

You can get a sense of how folks think in Texas from this coyote joke and this mock police exam.

Wasn’t that story of the kid and the make-believe grenade made up by his Mom?
I could be thinking about another article, but don’t remember.

I’d still be in first grade if today’s teachers had caught us playing “army” as kids. And the Mattel ‘tommy gun’ would have had them apoplectic (not to mention the toy (cap firing) grenades.

Update on the story of Alex:

“Alex, the local student who was suspended for throwing an imaginary grenade, has been executed by a School Board firing squad using assault rifles.

A little harsh, you say? No. Testimony from school Principal Valerie Lara-Black showed that she had determine that Alex had again broken school policies by thinking of a picture of an assault rifle.

Following this damning testimony, Alex was immediately taken behind the School Board building and executed by a 15-member board composed of local leaders. Parents of children at the school applauded the action.

No memorial service will be held for Alex since the school does not believe in such nonsense. Instead, his body will be dissolved in sulfuric acid and disposed of in a hazardous waste site.

His parents could not be reached for comments. They have mysteriously disappeared, along with his younger sister. The family dog has been shot for barking at a police cruiser that drove past the family house while it was being demolished by city crews.”

My cohort from the early fifties would be getting out of jail about now if today's rules applied then.

Cap pistols, smashing whole rolls of caps with a rock, setting off incendiary bombs made of alum foil wrapped strike anywhere matches and a rock, fireworks of all kinds, would have had Homeland Security ship us to Gitmo. One of the most prized toy guns was a Daisy pop-gun, your basic BB rifle without the BB capabilty. Stick the muzzle in the turf and shoot the sod plug at your friends butt. Satisfying dirt cloud, clear evidence of a hit and the yelp. Good stuff.

But at the heart of all these games was that we were "playing men" regardless of the scenario, army, cowboys, knights, Bengal Lancers, or cops and robbers were all the first steps in acknowledging our inherent masculinity, our DNA destiny.

Still, there’s the credibility of the enemedia in question.

Just a heads up.

I’m not sure this is stupidity on their part. I think it’s very calculated conditioning of young minds, kind of like aversion therapy. Making punishment swift, absolute and merciless for any thought, mention, suggestion, representation of mimicking of any real or play weapon may serve to make these kids grow up with an automatic trigger that unleashes massive negative responses to the idea of a weapon. Kind of like the “Catholic guilt” that nonbelievers love to lampoon.

Mental gun control, and our kids are the lab rats.

Great comment by Mule Skinner: "Democrat is Just another word for STUPID"

That has been my tagline for a few weeks now. Taking self defense advice from Slow Joe, is akin to taking financial advice from a bank robber.

To: Kaslin; All
WARNING: The video "Buy a Shotgun Joe Biden Lying AR 15" is supposedly pro-second ammendment, but, deliberately or not (I'm still not sure) is is the biggest piece of covert anti-gun propaganda to hit YouTube in a long, long time. It is a textbook example of blatantly irresponsible, dangerous behavior of "gun owners" who are actually adolescent-minded males putting loaded shotguns in the hands of wholly uninstructed young women and setting them up for being knocked on their butts while captured on video.

The reality is - and you can go to ANY Cowboy Action Shooting meet to see how true this is -- that very small, petite women are VERY capable of handling 12 gauge shotguns, thank you very much, let alone the average-sized gals on this video. The ONLY reason these girls were knocked on their asses or dropped the guns was because someone was willfully, and arguably criminally, negligent in giving them proper instruction.

The boys involved -- and that's all they were -- I hope end up having their asses kicked by the big brothers or fathers of the silly gullible gals involved, or better yet by their own fathers, for putting the girls and every bystander present in serious danger. In one shot, the gal could very well have gotten her head blown off, if it had been a hammerless side-by-side dropped in that matter after only one round was discharged. This video is DISGUSTING.

I love AR 15s, I think everyone should have the right to own one, and I know by personal experience how much gentler they are to shoot than 12 gauge shotguns. I also know that they're a HELL of a lot harder to come by and a HELL of a lot more expensive -- try $1500 to $4000 as opposed to $350 for a shotgun. Furthermore, as a regular shooter of pistols, rifles, and shotguns at multiple targets, I know how shockingly easy it is to miss with a pistol a bigger, closer target than what is easy to hit with a shotgun.

In other words, for women who can't get ARs, the shotgun is the next best thing for home defense -- specifically, shooting probably in the dark at an intruder INSIDE the home. This video does a disservice on so many levels -- spreading the LIE, the MYTH, that petite women can't handle shotguns, and worse, the shameful exhibit of blatant stupidity on the part of the gun owners (they certaintly weren't real men) involved.
