More disastrously bad advice from Joe Biden


As I reported previously, Joe Biden is telling America that a double barrel shotgun is more appropriate for self defense than an AR-15. That is wrong on its face, but Joe's advice gets even nuttier.

"You want to keep someone away from your house, just fire the shotgun through the door." 

If you do that, you will likely be charged with reckless endangerment, negligent homicide, or something worse. It is a violation of gun safety rules two and four.  It is a very stupid idea, perhaps the worst yet, from a man whose previous pontifications on what sort of gun you should have, and how you should use it, set a new standard for stupid.

An on-the-ball reporter covering Biden pointed out that a man recently did what Biden recommends and ended up in the calabozo, charged with reckless use of a firearm.

We ought not have gun policies recommended or dictated by people who have no idea what they are talking about.  But that is just what is going on. When the president talks about "magazine clips" that people shouldn't have and when toadies call any modern rifle a battlefield weapon of mass death, those of us who actually know somewhat about guns and shooting should know we are being set up. This gun control campaign is not about truth or reason or crime reduction. It is about limiting your power to defend yourself, for that will be the net effect if its ideas are implemented. Your power to defend yourself is at the heart of the Second Amendment, and the Second Amendment is the palladium of liberty.
