Important PSA from Joe Biden: “Buy a shotgun. Buy a shotgun.”

posted at 7:21 pm on February 19, 2013 by Allahpundit

Via the Weekly Standard, I bet the Onion wishes it had waited an extra month to release that e-book. This would have warranted its own chapter.

Not the first time he’s touted the benefits of shotgun ownership lately either. As goofy as it is, I think this is actually kinda sorta effective at blunting the “gun-grabbing” critique liberals naturally face whenever they get itchy about “assault weapons.” Here’s the vice president of the United States encouraging you to go on out and get yourself a 12-gauge, just like the one he’s got. Why? Because it’s easier to aim and use than an AR-15, which … I’m pretty sure isn’t true, but whatever. Just buy a shotgun. Buy a shotgun. That way, if ever you snap and head off on a killing spree, the death toll will be limited. Unless you bring a bag of shells with you and reload quickly, I guess. In which case, who knows?

That’s the first clip. The second clip, also from today’s Q&A with Parents magazine, is of someone asking why we’d expect an assault-weapons ban to work any better than the ban on illegal drugs does. Biden’s reply: Do you mean we should legalize all drugs? Which, of course, is a non sequitur. Few people (at least outside hardcore libertarian precincts) support legalizing all drugs or all weapons. There’s a national push to legalize weed but not so much to legalize heroin and meth; most are content to leave those restricted on grounds that they’re too dangerous, just like most gun owners are content to leave machine guns and bazookas in the hands of the feds. The better questions are (1) why is Biden trying to expand prohibition even though the data doesn’t support the need for it? And (2) how does he decide when it’s worth limiting the rights of the law-abiding majority in order to make things marginally more difficult for criminals? If banning assault weapons is justifiable, why shouldn’t we ban booze that’s over, say, five percent ABV in order to reduce drunk-driving accidents? The White House refrain throughout this miserable process has been that it’s worth doing if it’ll save even one life. Well, I’ll bet a ban on liquor that’s higher than 10 proof would save at least one. How about it?

Most gun purses aren’t made for southpaws-not that I’m big into purses anyway-and I don’t have enough where it’s needed for a ‘flash bang’. Also,as an Aspie, I don’t like things ‘hanging’. A holster/holster belt are going to be my best options.

Why stop at a shotgun? Every house needs a .9mm, a .22LR, and possibly a .45 if you’re so inclined as well.

I’d pick up an AR-15 if they actually had shelf stock at normal price points. Sadly, buying ammunition in .223 or 5.56 Nato is about as simple as getting Obummer to pivot on job creation.

No need for that many shells, slugs will go through a number of people like butter, way more damage than a rifle.

I’m thinking of getting a shotgun on the theory that just the sound of me pumping a shell into the chamber would discourage whoever might be prowling around the house and I might not have to shoot them — which I assume would be messy and a bit horrifying.

urban elitist on February 19, 2013 at 7:37 PM

Granny Clampett never killed anyone with her shotgun in many seasons of “The Beverly Hillbillies”…even when she tried shooting General U.S. Grant.

Just curious, what makes you think the person on the other side of the door will even be able to hear your pumping?

Del Dolemonte on February 19, 2013 at 9:15 PM

So, let’s see:

Remington 870 with extended magazine = 6 shells.
Each shell has 12 pellets .30 caliber, 60 grains per pellet, 72 pellets total. Add a side-saddle carrier and I’ve got 3 more shells (36x.30 caliber pellets, 108 total) plus 3 12-gauge slugs.

Compare that to an AR-15 with a 30-round magazine, 30x.223 caliber bullet, 55 grains each.

So why are we banning the AR-15 again?

And why should we believe you won’t come after our shotgun next?

The bullet would be fine, the cartridge is a problem.

S. D. on February 19, 2013 at 8:59 PM

Nope, even with hand loads the lighter bullet effect the gun. Though the lighter bullet makes for a great light show at night or an indoor range. I keep a few just for that.

annoyinglittletwerp on February 19, 2013 at 9:05 PM

In my previous life when I had to carry, only a regular holster (worn outside the clothing with its own gunbelt)worked for a wheelgun. Big pockets did work well though. But not as good as a shoulder holster, or concealed holster.

I recommend for your shooting pleasure a hide ride outside thumb-break or clamshell and a loose shirt. It won’t move unless you grab it, and it’s always in the same place.

Given the way that women are built, an inside the waistband holster may, indeed be your best bet…especially if you need to economize.
A good outside the belt holster that is properly made for a woman needs to be very high-ride or have a “spacer” to allow for ‘hip swell’. And the good ones that work will usually cost more than $40.
You might try here. https://www.dragonleatherworks.com/ Brigid at Home on the Range likes hers a lot.
And, when you use an IWB holster, it’s wise to allow an extra inch or two in the waistband of your pants. :)

Joe Biden, I don’t own my guns to go hunting. [Although, you and Barky's policies may make it necessary for me to provide for my family.] I also don’t keep them for home defense. [Although, I suspect they will be put to good use if they are needed.]

I have been purchasing guns with the thought I might have to defend myself from a tyrannical government. Am I the only one with this mindset? This is what the 2nd Amendment is to me.

We shouldn’t be arguing over limiting gun ownership, we should be talking about encouraging ownership for as many able, law abiding citizens as possible.

But then, being a liberal, you’d forget that you could reload.

WryTrvllr on February 19, 2013 at 11:27 PM

I woild like warn those who might consider following crazy Joe’s advice that firing a warning shot is a felony in most states. You can only use deadly force if you believe your life is imminent dager. By warning shot you are admitting it wasn’t. At a minimum you can be charged with a negligent discharge but you also can be charged armed assault or attempted murder. My recommendation is that if choose to employ deadly force shoot for center mass. If there is reason to beleve that your life was danger you will walk. If you are involved a DGU STFU until you have counsel. Even if the cops buy your story anything you say can get you sued.

Although I own a shotgun, a Remington 11-87 autoloader, it is not my prefered self defense weapon. Too much risk of collateral damage to my dogs if I use shot and launching a high velocity slug runs the risk of lighting up one of neighbors down the street. My weapon of choice is a 230 grain 45 ACP hollow point fired from a M1911. It will blow through my brick and plaster walls but will not have velicoty as it exits to kill anybody.

urban elitist on February 19, 2013 at 7:37 PM

Well Urban, I am going to go a bit crazy here and take you at face value.

Get a 21″ barrel pump 870 or a nova, or even a mossberg. put one (because, unlike obozo’s shotgun, yours won’t take two) improved cylinder choketube in it. get magazine extension tube (50 bucks thru cabelas). that should give you eight shots. put 4 rounds of #2 heavyshot into the mag first (you’re an elite, you can afford it) then 2 round of lead No 4′s, then 2 rounds of no.6′s. The first 2 shots will show you mean business and lose most of their energy in your drywall. The 2nd 2 shots will put down the diehards and drugged out nutjobs, and if you make it to the last 4, well, you’ll need all the help you can get anyway.

WryTrvllr on February 19, 2013 at 11:44 PM

So I bought a can with 175 00 buck today just on general principle. I usually don’t keep any shotgun ammo around, just 5 or 10 shells. But When a politician laughs and says “we’re never going to do XYZ” you can bet that XYZ is exactly what they’re planning on doing next. Hopefully it’ll just all blow over.

Theory is fun to talk about, but all you’d be doing is giving away your position.
 
Stop worrying about “whoever” being shot. Worry about your family. And if you actually want to protect them then go and learn how to handle that shotgun, and be fully prepared to use it. Then teach your family how to handle it, and then plan worst-cases and where they should be (drop to the floor, crawling to the closet/exit/phone, etc.) when they hear shooting. That element is just as important as anything else you do.
 
If you’re not ready for that then call 911 and watch the clock. They’ll show up eventually.
 
With guns. Funny, that.

Whether its deer in the cornfield or armed intruders, Joe Biden offers same advice.

MPan on February 20, 2013 at 8:08 AM

I certainly agree with you that shooting any live mammalian creature INSIDE your house will be somewhat “messy”.
Even if it’s a mouse, shot with .22 Long Rifle “snake-shot”.

Killing another human being will be “a bit horrifying” no matter where it takes place. The ONLY reason for doing so is to save yourself, or another person from imminent danger.

But since you were talking specifically “around the house”, you could get a burglar alarm that when tripped would play the sound of a pump-action shotgun jacking a shell into the chamber. Make sure small, hidden speakers are strategically located around and throughout your home. VOILA ! … No gun needed. Well … to your way of thinking, perhaps.

Personally, I’d keep a real shotgun, in addition to the aforementioned burglar alarm. Also a couple of handguns, and an AR-15 with “high-capacity” magazines.

But suit yourself.

listens2glenn on February 19, 2013 at 8:35 P

I do have a burglar alarm now. Based on an unfortunate experience I’d suggest that keeping a modest arsenal around the is not particularly more useful than a single, quickly accessible weapon. You’re not likely to get a chance to look through the gun locker (or closet) to select the weapon of choice. Since the night in question, the adrenaline has receded and with it, the urge to acquire a pump-action 12 gauge. On the other hand, a friend says he has the perfect gun…all I have to do is saw the barrel down to about 18 inches.

Why the change of heart, UE?

Could have sworn months ago you were telling us two things:

1. No one would ever, ever break into your home, because that only happens in movies.

2. If anybody did, you’d use your manly muscles to fight them off with some combination of Krav Maga, a baseball bat and laser-beam eyes.

Good Solid B-Plus on February 19, 2013 at 7:59 PM

I’d be curious to see a quote from me that implied either of those statements. Over the years, there have been enough people shot uncomfortably close to my house that I have made it a rule to respond rapidly and politely should anyone point a gun at me.

Go ahead, educate me. What disaster will befall me – besides potential police inquiry should they ever come across the weapon?

Are you saying all those movies and cop shows lied to me?

urban elitist on February 20, 2013 at 8:47 AM

Just discussing illegally altering a weapon is a felony per the ATF. Have a nice time in jail.

fossten on February 20, 2013 at 9:25 AM

You mean a shotgun like the one the crazed mass murderer in California just finished using in a rampage? The one we won’t talk much about because he was a crazed ARABIC kid?

michaelo on February 20, 2013 at 9:26 AM

Why isn’t there some sort of autotune remix for this yet?

Nothing we’re going to do is going to fundamentally alter or eliminate the possibility of another mass shooting or guarantee that we will bring gun deaths down to a thousand a year from what we’re at now,” Biden told reporters after meeting with Senate Democrats in the Capitol.

These new gun laws are for what purpose ?

J_Crater on February 20, 2013 at 9:50 AM

Politicians are solely self-serving miscreants. They are focusing all gun-control efforts only on those weapons that might allow a shooter to get through a 5-man security team and harm them. Period.

ROCnPhilly on February 20, 2013 at 9:59 AM

I think Biden’s gaff is emblematic of the liberal view of government: That somebody in Washington that knows little of guns and even less about any individual’s security situation believes himself qualified to decide what that individual can and can’t do to protect herself from the dangers she faces in her environment. While they often speak of “individual rights”, their actions show that liberals see individuals as just elements of some amorphous blob of humanity that one simple law, ruthlessly enforced, can be applied to to cover all possible situations.

Socratease on February 20, 2013 at 10:03 AM

That’s the first clip magazine. The second clip magazine, also from today’s Q&A with Parents magazine clip, is of someone asking why we’d expect an assault-weapons ban to work any better than the ban on illegal drugs does.

Just havin’ a little fun to confuse the trolls even more.

Joe Biden……. sigh. This moron wouldn’t know how to piss if it weren’t an automatic body function.

ActinUpinTexas on February 20, 2013 at 10:27 AM

Sadly, buying ammunition in .223 or 5.56 Nato is about as simple as getting Obummer to pivot on job creation.

Polish Rifle on February 19, 2013 at 9:11 PM

Which is why you need off calibers as well as mainstream.

.243, .30-30, .30-06, .45LC, .22WMR, are all available without hiccup.

roy_batty on February 20, 2013 at 10:28 AM

Sheriff Joe should have noted that ladies like Jill should stick with a 12ga, because a 20ga is heavier and bucks harder. They’re harder to find, but a 10ga is ideal.

Christien on February 19, 2013 at 8:58 PM

Humph. Teh Won uses a 1ga to kill them skeeters.

Wouldn’t Jill risk accidentally hitting one ore more of the heavily-armed Secret Service agents stationed outside her home?

Just keep shedding tears onto your high capacity magazines, conservatives. The 50 million of you who stayed home on election day because Romney wasn’t conservative enough for you have nobody to blame but yourselves.

APACHEWHOKNOWS on February 20, 2013 at 10:49 AM

My suggestion would be to start carrying plastic straws with poison tipped darts. Easy to carry so it has the ease of transportability factor. Tips can be made out of ordinary sewing needles from your sewing kits ladies, and….. this method could gain momentum in that everyone knows men like blow jobs.

I hate this BS…. when is this going to stop! Either we still have people in this country that are willing to stand up to this freedom sucking vampire of a government or just shut up! Real men would have stormed the white house castle by now. SHEEPLE go BAAAAH!

ActinUpinTexas on February 20, 2013 at 10:50 AM

On the other hand, a friend says he has the perfect gun…all I have to do is saw the barrel down to about 18 inches.

urban elitist on February 20, 2013 at 8:28 AM

Just go buy a Mossberg 500 Tactical with an 18″ barrel – no illegal tampering required. Mine also has a pistol grip and adjustable stock so it’s highly adjustable to your size and the environment you’re in.

CurtZHP on February 20, 2013 at 11:07 AM

Yes – it does go boom. And because of the scary black color, pistol grip and adjustable stock, the Dimtards will probably try to make it illegal. But then I have a couple others on their list as well – and the Dimtards in the Colorado legislature are trying to make the standard magazines for 3 of my guns illegal.

What kind of idiot tells people that all they need to do is fire a couple warning shots from their porch to ward off rapists? No one, I repeat, NO ONE should listen to a single thing this functionally retarded jackhole says.

RobertE on February 20, 2013 at 11:17 AM

More advice from bozo. The hits just keep on coming.

jake49 on February 20, 2013 at 11:18 AM

just like most gun owners are content to leave machine guns and bazookas in the hands of the feds

I have to disagree with this point. First of all, people can buy machine guns, you just need to get a Class 3 FFL and pay an extra fee to the feds. But I really don’t understand why machine guns need to be “outlawed”. They are far less accurate and go through a lot more ammo much quicker – but with less accuracy. And despite what you see Schwarzenegger and Stallone do in movies, real people don’t/can’t hold an M-60 in each hand and fire off a thousand rounds. They’re fun to shoot out on a range, but in the real world there’s a reason soldiers call it “spray and pray”.

I listened to the first clip and thought, who is the old lady interviewing Biden…then I watched and am still unclear…

In 1986, concerning CCW/CHL laws, there were: 1 UNRESTRICTED, 8 SHALL issue, 26 MAY issue, and 15 NO issue states.

The homicide rate was 8.6 per 100,000 inhabitants and there were an estimated 620.1 violent crimes per 100,000 inhabitants in 2011.

In 2011, concerning CCW/CHL laws, there were: 4 UNRESTRICTED, 37 SHALL Issue, 8 MAY Issue, and 1 NO Issue states.

The homicide rate was 4.7 per 100,000 inhabitants and there were an estimated 386.3 violent crimes per 100,000 inhabitants in 2011.

Who would rather live in 1986 when most people couldn’t carry firearms?

Resist We Much on February 20, 2013 at 11:58 AM

Actually I fully agree with Slow Joe that people should go buy shotguns. They are very good for certain things and in certain situations. Everyone should have at least one in their arsenal – along with an AR of some sort, a long range scoped rifle, and at least one handgun – multiple different caliber/shell types so you should be able to find ammo for at least one of them.
The perfect mix, IMHO.

dentarthurdent on February 20, 2013 at 12:06 PM

I’m watching this and it’s like a bad dream. Some kind of surreal nightmare. This is our VP.

Besides the stupidity, don’t you love how he mocks, ridicules and attempts a little intimidation of the people who dare ask him questions? “Who is that? What’s her name?”

If it were not for the media protecting the libs, they would be a laughing stock. The media in this country make me sick.

Yeah, he’d like us all to believe his wife, the wife of the Vice President of the United States, lives alone in a house out in the woods.. all by herself with no protection other than her double barreled shotgun. And he tells her that if she ever feels threatened, go outside and empty both barrels of your shotgun, honey, into the air or something.

And we lost to this. People voted for this.

Oh.. and I just love “Nobody wants to take your guns. We just want background checks.”
All they need to take those guns is the “Obama Gun Background Check.”

The application for the gun will be 29 pages and take 10 years to run. You will be fingerprinted, photographed and interviewed 16 times and then maybe, just maybe you’ll get your double barreled shotgun. Then.. if you want ammo.. well.. that’s another background check. Bend over.

What the heck does “Universal Background checks” even mean? We have background checks now?

JellyToast on February 20, 2013 at 12:13 PM

That way, if ever you snap and head off on a killing spree, the death toll will be limited. Unless you bring a bag of shells with you and reload quickly, I guess.
– Allah

Sure…you ‘guess’.
But good enough that you get this now.

JellyToast on February 20, 2013 at 12:13 PM

Universal background checks mean that if I want to give my son one of my guns I have to run a background check on him. If I want to buy my wife a nice derringer to go with the garter holster I bought her for Christmas, background check.

CurtZHP on February 20, 2013 at 12:25 PM

Actually Allah – we do know. Most of the kids killed at Columbine (in the middle of AWB Version 1) were killed with shotguns.
