Joe Biden has no clue concerning firearms – “Get a double barrel…”

Buy a double barreled shotgun, you don’t need an AR-15. “It’s harder to aim, it’s harder to use and you don’t need 30 rounds to protect yourself.” That’s the advice Vice President Joe Biden gave via video today. He is lying to you and does not know what he is talking about.

Have you ever shot a double barreled 12 gauge shotgun? Many of them are long and have a big kick. As compared to a semi-automatic AR-15 style rifle, the kick is huge. It’s much easier to get a 16 inch AR-15/M4 rifle back “on target,” it’s extremely easy to load, light weight, can be easily adjusted for different people, you can add lights and optics to allow the shooter to be more accurate during the day or night.

Sure, you might be able to stop a threat with one or two rounds, but what happens after that? I guess Biden is another person who thinks you deserve to be robbed, assaulted, raped or murdered if you can’t stop the threat in two rounds. The AR-15/M4 design allows you to select what magazine size is appropriate for your needs. Five, 10, 20 and 30 rounders are available. Pick what you need and what works for you.

I’m totally sick of people saying we don’t need 30 rounds. Sick of it.

Biden and the fools like him don’t want to ban 30 round magazines, they want to ban eight round magazines just like they have already done in New York. Then they want to ban all firearms … that is their end-goal.

There is no logic to this crap. I won’t even get into the ammunition discussion concerning shotguns. Hey Biden, what loads do you suggest for your shotgun? You have not got a clue do you? And it’s not just about protecting ourselves or hunting, it’s about protecting us from you Joe … stupid politicians who think they know what’s best for everyone.

Update: Good points from Ben Shapiro at Big Government.

    Biden is the person you send in when you want ?bama to look good by comparison.? Biden has his foot in his mouth so much he has athlete’s tongue.
    For the record: “In country” Blumenthal called a magazine a “clip” on the TV the other day.

      You mean that VP Biden has become a poster child for foot-in-the-mouth?

    This man is truly an idiot, ?we should all send him a thank you note. How about we take Joe’s wife out to the range and let her try out a double barrel shotgun and an AR 15. I bet I know which one she’d rather have under the bed after a day of shooting both. ?Laughin’ joe would be sleeping on the couch with his side by side.?

    The liberal elitist Democrat hegemony’s message here is that an AR-15 platform firearm is just too hard for you to use. That is exactly the opposite of the truth. Par for the liberal course.
    Somehow, these control-freak Democrats think that sending Ole Joe, Gaffeman, out to talk about guns gets their narrative traction. Gaffeman is the firearm’s expert? LOL He is the court jester sent to entertain the weak-kneed peasants with his witless twaddle. He is the embodiment of pathetic comic evil.
    He will initially be put up for election by the party but, Hillary will deign to run and he will make her look great by comparison.

    I looked up dumb on google. Take a guess whos picture popped up?

    I can’t remember the last time I saw presidential security running around with an, ahem, “alley sweeper”!? But if it’s good enough for Jill, it’s good enough for me- here in the ghetto!

    One wonders the capacity of the weapons mags in Joe’s SS detail?? Care to hazard a guess?? The handguns certainly are packed north or 12 (depending on caliber) and the little ‘grease guns/Uzi style/M10-11’s’?? Sticks of 30+ are the norm.?
    I respect the office of Vice President of the United States.? If more than 2 rounds are good enough to ‘protect’ this noted jadrool, they must be good enough to protect my simple being….? When will the ‘media’ ask him why he needs more than two-rounds for ‘protection’??
    Dannel P. would trip on his tongue nineteen times if asked this question.

    Tell Joe a street sweeper shotgun is better

  8. james pelkey on February 21, 2013 at 1:49 pm

    UNBELIEVABLE: what a can of worms [2 cans exactly] he opened up. 1 how many people are going to capitalize on joe’s statement and take that opportunity to step out on their balcony,porch,deck,stairs,lawn etc etc just to fire their[ DOUBLE BARREL ] shot gun [INTO THE AIR] 2 when one does fire their [DOUBLE BARREL] shot gun who in all honestly believe’s somebody is breaking in or really is breaking in, and the intruder does in fact do what joe said and runs away, now the police come and you cant produce a criminal, the police in fact will arrest and make the home owner a criminal for discharging a firearm in city limits,conspiracy to discharge a firearm in city limits, criminal mischief 1st degree,conspiracy to commit criminal mischief 1st degree, disturbing the peace, conspiracy to disturb the peace and then do to an aggressive prosecuting attorney,the law abiding home owner to avoid prison will in fact plead guilty to anything and everything that aggressive ?prosecuting attorney intimidates him or her into there by making the law abiding home owner a criminal.[UNBELIEVABLE]?

    In a word Joe…….gravity. What goes up must come down.

  10. Dimsdale on February 21, 2013 at 10:05 pm

    When you put the dumbest guy you can find in charge of your “gun violence task force”, you can’t be too serious about the whole thing.? Except as yet another vote grabbing ploy, that is….

  11. Common Man on February 21, 2013 at 10:56 pm

    Biden tells his wife ?use the shot gun to scare intruders away. If that doesn’t work I’m sure the Secret Service with their MP4 full auto ‘patrol rifles’ and 30 round magazines would. If I can’t have an AR15, maybe I can get Secret Service protection.

    Steve, you had me at “Joe Biden has no clue”…..?? 😉
