Biden Gun Advise

Biden Gun Advise 02

In light of the media “feeding” frenzy which twisted Donald Trump’s words to allege he was urging “violence” against Hillary Clinton, it is interesting to note words “uttered” by Vice President Joe Biden in 2008, that need no twisting: “that Obama would have a problem if he tried to take away Biden’s gun.”

Biden made the statement while campaigning in Virginia. According to Bloomberg Politics, Biden said, “I’ll guarantee, Barack Obama ain’t taking my shotgun. So don’t buy that malarkey. They’re going to start peddling that to you.” 

He added, “I’ve got two, and if he tries to pull my Beretta he’s got a problem.” Biden’s message was clear: “Mess with my guns and you’ll have a problem.”

“Mensa” Joe Biden has always been known for “spouting” gaffes, but some of the “absurd” comments he’s made about guns and firearms owners have landed him in the most “hot” water.

Following the Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting, the Obama administration has “touted” some controversial “gun control” measures.

In driving home the White House’s message, the vice-president has spoken out “fervently” about his contentions — but sometimes his comments have created “firestorms, furor and head-scratching.”

Here are Biden’s five most “comical, inaccurate and cringe-worthy” quotes about guns: “Buy a shotgun.”

“If you want to protect yourself, get a double-barrel shotgun.You don’t need an AR-15. 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.”

Not everyone “agreed” with this assessment. Jesse Bonner, owner of Jesse’s Gun Shop in Corsicana, Texas, smacked down Biden’s claim saying “our vice president is inaccurate.”

“That would not be true. I’ve taught enough ladies to shoot all different types of firearms and I can tell you that the AR-15 is going to be better suited for a lady. It would be better for all-around home defense and it’s one of the most accurate guns out there.”

“The AR-15 is now a mainstream weapon because of its quality design and accuracy,” he added, saying that a shotgun, especially a 12-gauge, can be “difficult” to use for many people. Smaller women could have even more “trouble” firing a 12-gauge shotgun due to the “recoil.”

So it seems, at least according to some, Biden’s “advise” on the matter isn’t necessarily “rooted” in accuracy.

After giving his advice to go out and “buy a shotgun” rather than an AR-15, Biden issued, perhaps, his most “controversial” gun comment to date.

During an interview with Field and Stream, an outdoors magazine, the vice-president gave additional advice to those looking to protect themselves against would-be intruders: “Just fire the shotgun through the door.”

And, again, he said that most can ”handle a shotgun a hell of a lot better than they can a semi-automatic weapon.”

Here’s a full transcript of his comments:

Well, the way in which we measure it is—I think most scholars would say—is that as long as you have a weapon sufficient to be able to provide your self-defense. 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 there’s 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 semi-automatic weapon in terms of both their aim and in terms of their ability to deter people coming. We can argue whether that’s 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 one’s arguing we should make machine guns legal.

Just shooting through a door isn’t necessarily the “best foot forward in terms of ensuring self-protection.”

Actually, this could be “criminal.” If someone told you it was perfectly “acceptable” to fire a round through a door at a “target you had not identified,” how do you think that would go over?

Only “Mensa” Biden would say best “defense” is to fire a traditional double barreled shotgun into the “air” twice.

“Now your gun is empty,” what a moron.

Earlier, Biden, once again, touted proposed “gun control” measures and took aim at the National Rifle Association (NRA).

He dismissed the “black helicopter crowd” and mocked gun owners who have “concerns” about potential government “overreach” in regulating firearms.

“Kinda scary man, the black helicopter crowd is really upset. No way that Uncle Sam can go find out whether you own a gun because we’re about to really take away all your rights and you’re not going to be able to defend yourself and we’re going to swoop down with Special Forces folks and gather up every gun in America. It’s bizarre. But that’s what’s being sold out there.”

In an MSNBC round table discussion, Biden issued a number of “controversial” quotes. Among them, he repeated familiar “attack” lines against the NRA, accusing the group of spouting “disinformation” and “paranoia.”

He also issued an “odd and fascinating” comparison, saying that some gun owners are only interested in the “feel” of a firearm in their hands.

“There is a paranoia out there. The facts are, there’s not a single solitary thing that we have proposed…this argument that there’s absolutely any constitutional violation is absolutely not there.”

Of course, Biden’s comments about gun owners who simply “like the feel of that AR-15″ will likely draw the most “ire” from gun owners.

“There is a whole new sort of group of individuals now…that never hunt at all. But they own guns for one of two reasons — self-protection, or they just like the feel of that AR-15 at the range.They like the way it feels. It’s like driving a Ferrari, you know.”

During the same MSNBC panel, Biden continued to offer up his “views” on shotguns versus AR-15s despite getting some “push back” months  before.

Acknowledging that critics have “lambasted” his assertions, he “doubled down” on them anyway, this time “warning” that AR-15’s could end up “killing” American children.

“You know, they make fun of my saying about use a shotgun if someone’s invading your home – guess what, use a shotgun on someone invading your home and you don’t kill your kids – use an AR-15, it goes through your wall and it can kill your kid in the bedroom” Biden said.

But, as CNS News pointed out, “Biden made no mention of self-defense ammunition designed for the AR-15 in order to prevent wall penetration.”
