Skip to comments.Bill Clinton: “You’re way better off with a shotgun than an assault weapon. Trust me.”
Posted on 04/30/2013 7:13:24 PM PDT by SeekAndFind
Been getting our self-defense and firearm-selection advice from our esteemed vice president, have we? Or, would that be just our talking points? Via the Washington Examiner:
If you live in a city and you think you need protection of your home, youre way better off with a shotgun than an assault weapon, Clinton added. Trust me. Its not even close.
Groan. For the umpteenth time — yes, a shotgun is a very solid choice for in-home self-defense, but for goodness’ sake, stop trying to discount AR-15s and their ilk as an defense option because of your eagerness to discredit its possible uses and classify it as an “assualt” weapon. What a criminal can assault a law-abiding citizen with, a law-abiding citizen can just as easily deter and defend against criminals.
Thanks Bubba. I have found that I can always trust weapons advice from serial rapist democrats.
Just don’t see a lot of SWAT teams or the Chicago Black Militia with single or double barrel single shot shotguns...just thinking if the real Pros need an AR15 (aka as an AK-47) I think I’ll stick with a winner.
OK, well, the shotgun is for protecting the house. The assault
rifle is for the protection of life and property from the goons
sent by a tyranical government run amuck. Read Madison’s
Federalist #46, Clinton, and then read the Second Amend-
ment. Amazing that the Founders figured out that sooner
or later the Clintons, Pelosis, Obamas, and Feinsteins would
“...THEN it is true that a shotgun (provided it is a weaponized one with a 18 barrel and pump or semi-auto) IS the BEST choice...”
Mine is a pistol grip 12 ga with a laser and bright light on it, loaded alternately with 00 & slugs. I also have a semi-auto 45 w13 rd clips and a rifle w/30 rd clips that I can fire nearly as fast as if it were ‘selectable’.
Anyone want to come and take your chances? Bring your shotgun, Willie Jeff...ya sure ya know which is the business end?
Which is why your SS detail carries only shotguns, eh, Bill?
Piss off ya statist.
Well in a way, a six foot wide pattern of double-ought will definitely ruin someone’s day. The thing I don’t like is some government weeny like Bill Clinton who most likely has never fired a gun telling us what we need or want for home defense.
Willie Jeff, the Rapist-in-Chief, never got the training to know the difference between ‘this is my rifle, this is my gun’...
Says the President who banned my Benelli shotgun in 1994 because it has a pistol grip and was therefore an 'assault shotgun' even though it was no different than the same model without the pistol grip which wasn't banned.
Bubba, DiFi, and plugs are talking shotgun and home defense PRECISELY to steer us away from rifles AND the purpose of 2A.
Got you covered (in a manner of speaking) on both, Bill. Multiple times on each count, as a matter of fact. Thanks for your un-solicited advice though but I know what the meaning of the word “is” is....
Just buy a shotgun! Women love them!!
Bimbo brain Biden and the Bubba Bill wouldn’t lie, would they?
Hey Bill, when I want some advice on how to fit an underling the age of my daughter under my desk, I’ll definitely give ya a call. On any other matters, STHU!
Man, you better watch out for Mobama's guns.
Hey, even that's progress! Normally they think it's about shooting deaaaah!
Is that a pocket copy of Das Kapital or you just happy to see me?
Shotguns and body armor.
I’m no firearms expert, but I would bet a significant sum that 12 ga slugs or buckshot will blast right through standard body armor, at least at close range such as inside a house.
I’ll choose what weapon to shoot an invader with.
It’ll be .45 JHP 230 grain by Hornady until I run out and then I’ll switch the shotgun, with slugs.
Was googling around about slugs and vests. Ran across one comment I though interesting.
The slug won’t penetrate, but it will make the front of the best contact the back of the vest.
No idea if that’s true, but given the sheer energy release from a slug or 00 at close range, I don’t think anybody hit in a vest is going to be good for much for a while, whether the rounds penetrate or not. Rough equivalent of getting hit by a car.
So tell me Bill.
Why does the Secret Service use Uzi’s if a shotgun would be better?
Bill you married Hillary, got caught cheating at least a dozen times, if you were an average Joe you would be in jail for being a sexual preditor, and lost your law license for perjury. If I need help finding and marring a dog like Hillary, lessons in being a sexual pervert, or lying in court, I will give you a call. Considering weapons, keep your opinion to yourself Opie. Retiring from the Army provided me with the skill set you will never have you panzy.
“You dont have a clue about firearms.”
But I’m sure that never stopped him from saying, Hey baby, why don’ we go on upstairs and y’all can clean my barrel! Wooooohoooo! Yeah!!! /s;)
Women prefer .410 and 20-gauge shotguns because others have too much kick. But for men, why limit them to shotguns when a pistol or carbine is really better?
An assult weapon is belt fed.
You'd think so, but then you'd be wrong. The statists realize that their personal powers, and secret knowledge, far surpass that piece of parchment Constitution, which some unknown professor says is written in a language so archaic that nobody has understood it in the last 50 years.
We are fortunate to have the world's leading authority on home protection, and the second-smartest male in history to lecture us about the benefits of using a shotgun, assuming they permit us to own anything in the way of weaponry.
Uncle Joe first praised the double-barrel shotgun as more then we'll ever need, because bad guys surrender when you fire that first shot into the air from the back porch. But then he also said that the bad guys would surrender just at the sound of a pump action chambering a round. What's the better form of wisdom, considering they both came from Mr. Shotgun himself?
The best I could come up with was a form of bipartisanship. A single-barrel 12ga shotgun with two tubular magazines:
Aside from a few mods I made to the Kel-Tec KMG for my own comfort and preferences, the shotgun itself is set up to handle six 3" shells in both magazine tubes, with a lever to change from one "tank" to the other. I have great expectations of using the Mexican "shorty" shells also. This should give a total capacity of about 25 rounds, with one in the chamber, although if kept empty, I always have that magical "chunk, chunk" sound of chambering that first round.
Thank you for being so frank about so serious subject, Mr. Biden. I just don't know what I would have done without it, except go with something more inappropriate, like my sub-MOA AR-10.
My shotgun has a whole lot more kick than an AR15. Both have their uses, but fortunately we have a Second Amendment. My right to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed. That means I get to decide what firearms to use in my own defense. It’s not like the size of soft drink I can buy, which is within Bloomberg’s power to regulate when he knows better than I do how thirsty I am. This is a God-given human right, and government lacks the authority to infringe on this decision even if Clinton, Obama, or Pelosi thinks I’m wrong in my choice.
So. Bill, who did you shoot?
Shoot! I was in the Army, and trained with and USED the AR15/M16. Why should I trust Clintoon, who, as far as I know, never fired a gun in anger?
I have been researching the best ways to overcome the balance of any confrontation of a superior armed force or superior numbers.
And usually it boils down to what they fear the most and thats long range standoff weapons, the further the better.
They train for confrontation against assault weapons, I will train otherwise. Like Quigly said, “Doesn’t mean I don’t know how to use one”. We can and should fight for assault weapons, but there is better alternatives for an edge.
Let me know if the messkin ammo works..... 25 rounds in that will make me jealous .
A Benelli M4 with a XRAIL was my Uncle Joe (who has touched us all, albeit inappropriately ) with the suggestion to buy a shotgun.
Taking firearms advice from a polidiot is like taking birth control advice from a bowling ball return. Yet Joe the village idiot did good.
That KSG is on my wish list. Let me know how and what etc .... Very interested in your trusted review !
Hey Bill, people need protection outside their homes as well. Are you saying we should carry shotguns in our cars? idk what this man is yapping about.
Sturmgewehr in WWII defined the “assault” rifle.. and many others were/are not belt fed.
Check military’s definition, ok.
For example, A full auto capable AR-15 is indeed an assault rifle, and it is magazine fed.
