Joe Biden Special Weapons and Tactics

Vice President Joe Biden has been in the news a lot lately for not only his ignorance where the Second Amendment is concerned, but for the flat out stupidity of his self-defense advice. Since apparently the man doesn’t know when to shut his mouth, he’s at it again.

In an interview with Anthony Licata from Field & Stream a couple days ago, our esteemed Vice President once again disseminated self-defense advice, and it was no less atrocious than last time. Here’s a partial transcript, emphasis added.

F&S: What about the other uses, for self-defense and target practice?

V.P. BIDEN: 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 semiautomatic 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.

You just can’t make this stuff up. Mr. Biden has now recommended firing warning shots into the air, and firing through the door at a potential intruder.

Prediction: he will next advise people that they really don’t even need to load their shotgun, since the sound of racking the slide alone will scare off the bad guy.

You can read the entire interview here if you can stomach it.

    The only thing worse than a tyrant is a STUPID tyrant.

    Basically, my advice to anyone who wants to defend themselves, take everything he says, and do the exact opposite, and you’ll be good to go. You could write a complete training SOP on everything you shouldn’t do just on the stupid crap that falls out of his mouth.

    Well what can we expect he is politician look how they have screwed up our country why would we think he has common sense anything more than a idiot.

    Careful, he might be watching and think it’s a good idea.

    I’d suggest that Mr. Biden be a true leader and lead by example. As of 1 MAR, he should take a stand and declare that all Secret Service agents will relinquish all arms and be retrofitted with double barreled shotguns. Let see how that works before the rest of have to commit to it.

    don’t tell dumb old joe, but my daughter was shooting an ar15 as a teenager, along with a colt “govt. model” 9mm pistol, and showing up the boys big time. she’s a grown up gal now, but she still has her guns.

    Good thing his mail man doesn’t come to his door. That could be one dead mail man.

    This man, ladies and gentlemen, is in charge of Obama’s gun violence task farce. I hope there was no expectation that anyone would take it seriously.

    And to think this idiot is one heartbeat away from the presidency!

      That was done on purpose, if there was an assassin he’d have Obama in his sights and go, “Wait a minute, if I shoot him, he becomes… Awe, come on, that’s not fair!!!”

    He advocates a double barrel shotgun… so he can’t even advocate racking the slide as a deterrant!

    • Brandon February 28, 2013 at 7:00 am #

      LOL you think that will stop him?

  14. JoshinGA February 28, 2013 at 7:36 am #

    What Biden handler thought letting him talk to Field & Stream would be a good idea?

  15. SteveG February 28, 2013 at 8:30 am #

    Already said but what the heck…

    “Prediction: he will next advise people that they really don’t even need to load their shotgun, since the sound of racking the slide alone will scare off the bad guy.”

    of a double barreled shotgun!

    The problem is there are people who believe his ‘gospel’ of the shotgun. Many have been arrested for firing their guns into the air already. How many people will die before he learns to stop his unsafe ‘shoot through the door’ rhetoric?

    the problem with biden’s “shoot in the air and give ’em a scare” advice is that the shot is going to come down somewhere. “it ain’t the bullet with your name on it you gotta worry about, its the one addressed ‘to whom it may concern'”
