Follow Biden's Shotgun Advice, Go Directly to Jail

Follow Biden's Shotgun Advice, Go Directly to Jail

In an ongoing effort to make it appear that the administration isn't interested in banning all guns, but rather only the evil-looking ones, Vice President Joe Biden has been handing out helpful advice to women wanting a gun and gun owners in general.

"Tactical Joe" Biden has made headlines talking about how a shotgun is much better for home defense than an AR-15, and has stated that a double-barreled shotgun is easier to use and fire than an AR. Anybody who knows anything about guns knows this isn't true — especially if you're smaller framed.

For those of you who don't get it, here's why Mr. Biden is saying these things. The administration knows they can't come out publicly in favor of a ban on all guns — which most high-ranking members of the administration from the president on down are on record, at one time or another, of supporting. By saying they think shotguns are much better than ARs for personal defense, they are trying to persuade the ignorant and just plain dumb among us that they are only against those "ugly black guns" that aren't good for anything but shooting up schools.


In a recent interview, Biden said that he tells his wife that if she ever feels threatened by a home intruder, she should just "walk out on the balcony here, walk out and put that double-barreled shotgun, and fire two blasts outside the house."


Apparently Mr. Biden has been living such an isolated life in Washington, D.C., that he doesn't realize that firing your weapon randomly into the air is against the law — everywhere. But that didn't stop him from giving out more advice.

For a recent interview with Field & Stream, Biden recommended that if you wanted to keep someone away from your house, "Just fire the shotgun through the door."

Perhaps Oscar Pistorius was following Joe Biden's advice when he said he fired his gun through his bathroom door at who he believed was an intruder, killing his girlfriend? The South African police have charged Pistorius with murder, and even if the incident occurred exactly as he stated, firing blindly at a mystery noise on the other side of a door is one of the stupidest things you can do with a gun — even though the second-highest-ranking government official in the United States is saying otherwise.

The same day Joe Biden advised people to trade in their ARs for shotguns and start shooting through doors to scare people away, a man in Virginia Beach, Va., did just that. Trevor Snowden was at his apartment when two masked men leaned in his bedroom window. They pointed guns at him and told him to shut his bedroom door.


Snowden moved into the hallway, retrieved his shotgun, fired through his bedroom door, then opened the door and fired several more rounds through the window.

In a review of the lean facts around this incident, it seems a little uncertain to me if Snowden acted inappropriately — you fire in the direction of two armed men are who you believe are trying to rob you — yet the police still charged him with reckless handling of a firearm.

Hmm. Maybe he can get Joe Biden to testify on his behalf as an expert witness at the trial.
