Joe Biden Says, “You Don’t Need 30 Rounds to Protect Yourself. Buy a Shotgun” … Big Talk from a Man Protected by the Secret Service


Military-style  weapons and high capacity gun magazines for me, not for thee …

In an interview with Parents Magazine, Vice President Joe Biden continued on the Obama WH’s assault on the Second Amendment and “We the People’s right to bear arms by saying, “If you want to protect yourself, get a double-barrel shotgun.” Biden then went on to say that people assault-style weapons and they don’t need 30 rounds to protect yourself. Biden proposed that people buy shotguns. Really Joe, I believe there are also shot guns on the Feinstein ban list as well. Of course this is rather big talk from a man who has numerous Secret Service agents protecting him and his family with guess what … automatic weapons.

Vice President Joe Biden said people don’t need high-capacity weapons to protect themselves and that the Obama administration’s efforts to reduce gun violence amount to gun safety, not gun control.

“If you want to protect yourself, get a double-barrel shotgun,” Mr. Biden said Tuesday in an interview with Parents Magazine. The White House has proposed banning certain high-capacity weapons and Mr. Biden, who says he has two shotguns, said most military-style weapons aren’t good for home defense.

“You don’t need an AR-15,” Mr. Biden said, referring to an assault-style rifle. “It’s harder to aim, it’s harder to use, and in fact, you don’t need 30 rounds to protect yourself. Buy a shotgun. Buy a shotgun.”

The video above was from a Facebook town hall where once again Biden made some rather peculiar and bizarre comments of advice he gave his wife with regards to protecting herself. So let’s get this correct, Biden thinks its responsible to fire buckshot into the air outside indiscriminately, rather than properly aiming a rifle at an intruder? Really? Newsflash to Joe, there is this thing called gravity and bullets fired into the air come down.

“If there’s ever a problem,” Biden said he told his wife Jill, “just walk out on the balcony here–walk out, put that double barrel shot gun and fire two blasts outside the house — I promise you whoever is coming in … You don’t need an AR-15, it’s harder to aim, it’s harder to use…Buy a shotgun! Buy a shotgun!”

I guess Joe Biden missed the story about the folks in Michigan who did need an assault-style weapon and 30 rounds to protect themselves from would be robbers with hand guns.

Freedom’s Light House nails it, “What Joe is neglecting, of course, is that the U.S. Constitution does not say citizens can only own ‘shotguns,’ nor is it any of his business what kind of legal firearm individual citizens own to defend themselves.” But what would one expect from a White House who believes in telling you how to live, what you can eat, what type of insurance you must have and what kind of energy you can use. America, this is the government that you Founding Fathers warned you against.

      so, does Bucky Larson think that a shotgun won’t kill ? or, is he just stupid as we all know that he is ?

      Stupid Joe is at it again. Just shoot the shotgun in the air and the theif will run away.

      A short barrel shotgun will give great protection in a residence, but you still have to learn how to shoot.

      Tell me it’s ONLY residential protection
      that we need and you’ll be showing your
      stupidity on your sleeve. Founding fathers
      knew how gathering power corrupts whole
      governments to the point of abuse and
      criminal behavior.

      BTW, gangs equipped with AR-15s can out
      distance and outshoot shotguns anytime in
      both accuracy and firepower.

      The second ammendment was all about giving the people the way to defend themselves against a goverment that was out of control. Our founders did not believe in a standing army, but a concept that is in use in Switzerland where all men are trained to defend the rights of the people.

      This whole debate and all of the existing gun control laws on the books are unconstitutional. The federal government cannot follow the constitution and pass any laws relating to the control of guns or ammunition. All such laws are therefore unconstitutional and the people have the right to nulify them by ignoring them.

      Just because the Supreme Court has from time to time agreed with a law that is passed unconstitutionally, does not make it the supreme law of the land. When the court is out of controll, it is time for people to stand up and call them out on their decisions.

      Texas Grandfather … outstanding post! I honestly agree with every word (but prefer the Israel model) and understand the conflict between being lawful and being right … thank you
