Vice President Biden transitions from stupid to dangerously stupid
Seriously, if Joe Biden were a conservative/Republican, we would never hear the end of it from the Left. Instead, they ignore or explain away the absolutely absurd actions and statements of this clown.
Biden's greatest hits used to be his infamous goofy gaffes like telling a man in a wheelchair to stand up and emphasizing that three letter word: J-O-B-S... jobs. Or his latent racism where he praised candidate Obama in 2008 as being articulate and clean, or when he said you can't work in a 7-11 store unless you have a slight Indian accent.
Biden has now topped all of that with his dangerous, illegal, and outrageous advice regarding all things shotgun.
In an effort to downplay the effectiveness of an AR-type defensive rifle, Biden has spent the last couple weeks trying to sell the American people on shotguns. The problem is that his advice has been something that will get you arrested.
First, Biden told a citizen questioner during an online townhall meeting that the best thing to do for home defense is to get a double-barreled shotgun and fire it into the air. Just hearing my description of his advice isn't enough; you have to watch and listen to this fool as he dispenses his madness:
The last I checked, discharging a firearm into the air is quite a no-no. Not to mention, what the hell is Slow Joe talking about with his wife having to arm herself? The VP and his family live on the grounds of the U.S. Naval Observatory near Washington D.C. with round-the-clock Secret Service protection. As if Slow Joe hadn't stepped in it badly enough with his fire-the-shotgun-into-the-air comments, he then doubled down and dispensed some more dubious advice. In an interview with Field and Stream magazine, Biden said, "[if] you want to keep someone away from your house, just fire the shotgun through the door."
One of the cardinal rules of gun safety is to know what your target is and what is beyond it. Apparently, Biden doesn't know about this rule, nor, apparently, did South African "blade runner" Oscar Pistorius. He is currently sitting in a South African jail on a murder charge for doing exactly what Biden suggested. Pistorius's girlfriend, who was on the other side of the bathroom door through which he shot was unavailable for comment.
As the statist narrative against defensive rifles begins to fall apart, the Obama administration, along with other federal and state totalitarians, are getting more and more unhinged and shrill as they try to sell their execrable position against Constitutionally protected self-defense to the American people. Few officials are doing a more bang-up job of this than Slow Joe Biden.
