Dear Joe Biden:

     1. How in the name of all that is holy or even merely sensible is a heavy, hard-recoiling and (probably) wrong size out of the box double-barreled shot gun "easier to use" than a lightweight, highly-adjustable, low-recoil AR-15 in .223?  Are you really that ignorant?

     2.  How in the name of -- well, the name of Anything At All -- does it make sense to randomly discharge a shotgun when under threat?  Especially if one takes your full advice to "fire two blasts" from a double-barreled shotgun and is then left holding a heavy, awkward club?  --You really are that ignorant, aren't you?

     3. Please pass this along to Mrs. Biden: Look, you're living at the Naval Observatory.  It's a well-secured site.  If somebody's lurking or trying to break in, lock yourself in the bathroom and call Secret Service or the Navy; they are mere seconds away.  Take the shotgun along but don't fire it unless you have to.  Stay the hell off the balconies; maybe you dote on ol' Joe but he doesn't know what he's talking about when it comes to self-defense.

     Gah.  Vice-President Joe Biden: in favor of unaimed gunfire, ill-fitting guns and home-defense hardware better suited to "Green Acres" reruns than real life.

But you don't understand! He was talking about that Secluded Woodland Acreage that he lives on in Delaware.

You know, that place surrounded by his Personal Secret Service Bodyguards, the Perimeter Alarms, the Roving Patrols, etc.

Why, it's more Dangerous there than in Syria!

HA! The man's woefully, hopelessly ignorant. Only an Obama voter would believe he's knowledgeable about these things.

Jeez, the tactical self-defense training market is getting overcrowded; even the vice president is hanging out a shingle now...

1b: Yes; 2b: Yes.

Hmmm...two, count 'em two indoor shotgun blasts. Good thing we've got Obama-care, have you seen the price of hearing aids lately?

Now you know why Jokin' Joe there is this administration's face of gun control. If everybody in the country thought like that, I'd be stumping for civilian disarmament too.

I swear that idiot's IQ gets lower every time he opens his mouth.

Joe is doing a pretty good job of making Quayle seem intelligent by comparison. Frankly, every time Joe speaks it makes me wonder why he's trusted with anything sharper than a crayon.

Witness the mental gyrations that politicos and partisans have to achieve:

Here we have democrats back up on their favorite hobbyhorse, gun control. In order to convince us that people simply don't NEED assault weapons*, they've got to claim variously that women can't operate them (too complicated, you see), that a more pedestrian weapon is actually BETTER (that's why the Army got rid of their M-16's and now pack Browning doubles, right?), or that women, when faced with an attacker, are better off sticking fingers down their throats, urinating on themselves, or pretending to be pregnant in the hopes that the rapist will leave them alone.

In short, the party that decried the "War on Women" now has to make out that women are too stupid to even use a gun and are better off just lying down and taking it rather than defending themselves.**

What a world we live in.

(*) "Assault weapon" having a highly elastic definition such that any gun that the Brady Bunch wants to ban can be considered one.

(**) In the interests of bipartisanship, conservative partisans can be just as bad: witness the idiocy, in defense of the 'right to life', that a woman can't get pregnant from rape.

The New Joe Biden - now with even more Summer's Eve disposable freshness!

JohninMd.( HELP!) said...

"Is he really that ignorant, that stupid?" Why, yes. Yes, he is.

It's clear to me that Joe Biden is a closet zombie, or he would at least be advocating a pump shotgun.
