Skip to comments.More advice from Joe Biden: 'Just fire the shotgun through the door'

In an interview with Field & Stream magazine on Monday, Vice President Joe Biden once again touted shotguns as the best weapon for self-defense, offering advice similar to the questionable instructions he gave during a Facebook town hall last week.
During that interview, Biden explained his suggestion to his wife Jill for handling an intruder.
If theres ever a problem, Biden said he told his wife, just walk out on the balcony here walk out, put that double barrel shot gun and fire two blasts outside the house.
The problem with Bidens advice is that it would empty the shotgun and possibly get the shooter in trouble with the law.
Undaunted, Biden gave similar advice in his interview with the hunting and fishing magazine.
Field & Stream asked the Vice President whether so-called assault rifles and high-capacity clips, which the administration wants banned, should be allowed for self-defense and target practice.
Well, the way in which we measure it isI think most scholars would sayis that as long as you have a weapon sufficient to be able to provide your self-defense, Biden said. 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 theres 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 thats 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 ones arguing we should make machine guns legal.
“The problem with Bidens advice is that it would empty the shotgun and possibly get the shooter in trouble with the law.”
Yes, but we are dealing with the dumbest VP in American history. Stupidity and ignorance comes natural to him.
Great advice. Now Jill has an empty gun by which to defend herself when the intruder goes after her. Brilliant.
How is it Constitutionally lawfull that an imbecile can be Vice President?
The guy is a certified moron. A shotgun is not a Party Popper, even a 12 ga game load from Wal Mart has more knockdown power at close range than a 9 shot burst from a full auto 223
“even a 12 ga game load from Wal Mart has more knockdown power at close range than a 9 shot burst from a full auto 223 “
Horribly irresponsible advice.
Yeah a deer slug, center mass will do the trick. Plus the muzzle flash will blind them and the noise will deafen them.
Apparently Oscar Pistorius was just using a variation on Biden’s advice....
Liberals and their pet “media” would be having a friggin’ field day if Sarah Palin had said this.
First of all - “machine guns” are legal.
Secondly firing through a door in your home at someone is about as stupid as it gets. No matter who you hit, if anyone, you are probably going to jail. One exception I can think of is if you just retreated from a life threatening danger through that same door, and the threat was pulling a “Shining” style “here’s Johnny.”
“...Well, you know, my shotgun will do better for you than your AR-15...”
Hmm...stupidity such as that doesn’t even require a response.
And this moron is a heartbeat away from the _residency.
Then again, how could he be any worse...
Don’t ask a question to which you really don’t want to know the answer...
State law in CA is they have to be through the door, shooting through a door at someone outside on the porch will get you in jail.
walk out, put that double barrel shot gun and fire two blasts outside the house.
That will alert the 12 secret service people here to the problem and you will be fine.
Not in every state my friend....but Biden is still a retarded monkey.
12 guage= 3200 lbs/PSI
I believe that the reason why the government is focusing on AR's first is because they know that the AR is a tactical long range combat weapon and they know that they are doing everything to bring on armed rebellion.
So Biden may not be as stupid as it appears
Its like how theives lock their own stuff up tighter than anyone
In a insurrection scenario close combat would be a fatal mistake when outnumbered and outgunned. Traditional combat in the AR range would be most effective, especially against helicopters and drones. And that is where they would take it. Eye contact assault against ones own people could prove a disaster for them. They would need to demonize and surgical bomb isolated groups
I think the government leaders are perplexed that a group has not yet attacked them for their obvious tyrannical activities in violation of the constitution
In their consciences, the leaders know they deserve to be slaughtered, the American people just dont realize it yet. The American population is peaceful, fat and happy so far. And they wont know they are slaves until it is way too late, the propaganda and mind control machine is working very well for the evil leaders.
....until the ATM's run dry and the store shelves go empty everything will be fine. The american dollar is teetering on the brink
Self Defense Instructions to Joe Biden:
Get yourself a double barreled 12 gauge shotgun,
Load it with Double Ought buck shot,
Insert both barrels in mouth,
