    Biden: ‘Just Fire the Shotgun Through the Door’

    BY: Washington Free Beacon Staff

    Vice President Joe Biden’s fondness for his shotguns has been documented by the Washington Free Beacon, and he continued to promote the use of these dangerous weapons in an interview with the outdoor website, Field and Stream.
    F&S: What about the other uses, for self-defense and target practice?
    BIDEN: Well, the way in which we measure it is—I think most scholars would say—is that as long as you have a weapon sufficient to be able to provide your self-defense. I did one of these town-hall meetings on the Internet and one guy said, “Well, what happens when the end days come? What happens when there’s the earthquake? I live in California, and I have to protect myself.”
    I said, “Well, you know, my shotgun will do better for you than your AR-15, because you want to keep someone away from your house, just fire the shotgun through the door.” Most people can handle a shotgun a hell of a lot better than they can a semiautomatic weapon in terms of both their aim and in terms of their ability to deter people coming. We can argue whether that’s true or not, but it is no argument that, for example, a shotgun could do the same job of protecting you. Now, granted, you can come back and say, “Well, a machine gun could do a better job of protecting me.” No one’s arguing we should make machine guns legal.

    There's a lawsuit just waiting to happen. Where did "identify your target" go?

    Yea, I can just "SEE" a Defense being built around some poor female blasting thru her front door, because she heard a noise, and thought a Mugger was trying to break in. The "Reality" turns out to be, "It was the Mailman" The Defense is "VP Joe Biden told me, I should just shoot thru the door, if I am scared, with my Trusty Double Barreled Shotgun"[woot]

    Apparently Joke'en Joe Got it WRONG....
    Biden Advises Shooting Shotgun Through Door

    Virginia Beach man charged for doing exactly that

    By Steven Nelson on February 28, 2013
    Vice President Joe Biden told Field & Stream magazine in aninterview published Monday, "[if] you want to keep someone away from your house, just fire the shotgun through the door."
    Coincidentally, a 22-year-old man in Virginia Beach, Va., was charged Monday with reckless handling of a firearm after doing just that a couple days earlier.
    Local TV station WAVY 10 reports that the man observed two masked men leaning into his bedroom window. The men allegedly had weapons and told him to close his bedroom door. He stepped outside of his bedroom and did as instructed, then fired his shotgun through the closed door and then several more times at the window.

    According to the news report there were no injuries and the suspects were not apprehended by police.
    Biden's comments to Field & Stream came as he summarized a hypothetical question in which someone from California pondered "when the end days come" or if there's an earthquake.
    Earlier this month, Biden told an interviewer that he had advised his wife, Jill, "if there's ever a problem, just walk out on the balcony here, walk out and put that double-barrel shotgun and fire two blasts outside the house."
    According to Delaware attorneys contacted by U.S. News, in Biden's home state it is only legal to use deadly force if there is reason to fear imminent loss of life. Shooting a gun in the air could result in felony reckless endangering and aggravated menacing charges, in addition to misdemeanor charges, the lawyers said.

    In December, Biden was selected by President Barack Obama to lead a task force on establishing new federal gun control laws. In January, Biden presented Obama will proposals including limiting the bullet capacity of gun magazines and establishing universal background checks for all gun purchases.
    A spokeswoman for Biden did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

    I think Joe has been watching too many Hollywood movies. Joe is giving Dan Quayle a run for his money and can give up any ambitions for POTUS short of BHO dying or having an incapacitating stroke.
