More bad firearm advice from Joe Biden – Shoot through a door Posted by Steve McGough on February 28, 2013

Actually, this could be criminal. If someone told you it was perfectly acceptable to fire a round through a door at a target you had not identified, how do you think that would go over?

More Vice President Joe Biden advice on self-defense strategies. First it was warning shots for the heck of it, and now we have the guy suggesting this? While on the discussion of modern sport rifles…

F&S: What about the other uses, for self-defense and target practice?

V.P. 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.

Shoot through the door?

There is a famous guy (bladerunner) in South Africa going on trial now for doing just that.-Tom

Sure glad ‘we’ didn’t have the ‘shoot through the door policy’ back in my drinking days.
Come home with half a package on and have the ‘little lady’ pump a few rounds through the front door.
Also handy if your kid is coming home late for a date.

I am convinced that just before the election ‘they’ had joebama out making ludicrous statements etc to keep ‘us’ off balance and let everyone neglect what was going on around them.

If I was correct then - they did keep him under wraps for awhile - with this latest couple of statements on firing a weapon ANYWHERE, ANYTIME,
THEY must be fixing to unleash a tsunami on us...

The NRA needs to start running ads with a stupid Biden quote, then put the basic firearms saftey rules he is ignoring on the screen.

NRA???

Why should they ‘waste’ money on such an ad.

The R’s ought to be standing in the well EVERY day pumping this info out.
The press can only ignore them for so long, if for nothing but to tell them to STFU it is a start...

Shooting through a door is pretty close to the height of paranoia.

NOT KNOWING who might be on the other side, but just “feeling uncomfortable”, and putting a couple of loads of lead shot moving at about 1,000 fps into somebody’s face, thorax or abdomen, may be just a little overreaction.

Besides, what if you have a steel-faced door? Wouldn’t that blunt the force of the discharge quite a bit? And does anybody have any idea how LOUD the discharge of a 12-gauge shotgun makes inside a closed room?

Joe Biden obviously watches too many cop shows on TV or in the movies.

Joe is not to bright. An ar-15 shooting a hot load will be under 4 ft/lbs of recoil. A 20 gauge shooting a moderate load will be somewheres around 6-7 ft/lbs of recoil. A 12 gauge shooting an ounce and a quarter of OO buck will be around 30 ft/lbs. A 3" 12 gauge shooting a maximum load 1oz sabot at 1950 fps will be punishing.

Besides the fact that shotguns are very hard to handle in tight quarters because they are so long.

Good one, Joe. You just fired off a couple of rounds from your balcony, and ran into the house because it didn't work (you just let the criminals know you've used up your ammo).
The neighbors call the police because they heard the gun shots. The police show up on the other side of your door. You blow them away. Police blood spatters everywhere.
Good idea, Joe - NOT!!!

LOL. According to Biden, if we feel threatened we can shoot anyone on the other side of a door. So, why not invite a few liberal neighbors over for dinner? Tell them to knock three times.

An excellent idea for MSNBC. They can run it back to back with the Ed Show.

= = = = = = = = = = = =
In a ‘perfect world’ ALL the bidens and his ilk would be issued shot guns AND steel doors with instructions how to aim and shoot.

Then let the ‘smart guys’ figure out the weird ‘blood splatter’ patterns.....

It is hard to believe these people are our ‘Leaders’

We never opened our eyes after A Gore came so close to assuming the role. That should have been a wake up call for ALL R’s, but looking at what is occupying PA Ave at the present means ‘we’ learned absolutely nothing.
