Joe Biden's pro-shotgun tour gets more ridiculous
Last week our idiot vice president offered advice for women who want to deter a home invasion. They should simply go outside on their porch and fire a double-barreled shotgun into the air. Here's why that's a bad idea......
First, it'll give away your position to the attacker. And second, it takes time to reload a double-barreled shotgun so for maybe 20 seconds, you'll be unarmed and vulnerable.
Yesterday, he doubled-down on his stupidity by suggesting that if there's an unwanted person at the door, just fire a shotgun blast through the door. How is this the worst advice ever? Let me list the ways....
a. what if it's a stranger, but a non-threatening one like the postman with your Omaha Steaks shipment or the cable guy?
b. now that you've destroyed your door, you are really vulnerable to intruders.
c. you could be in serious legal trouble for shooting somebody who hasn't entered your home uninvited.
I'm sure you can think of other reasons why shooting through your door sight unseen, is a bad idea. Why the administration is hellbent on talking the American people out of using semi-automatic weapons to protect themselves escapes me, but I'll guess that general disarming of the American citizenry is always the goal of democrats. What does the government have to fear from an armed populace? Too much resistance?
