    Joe Biden says forget the rifle — get yourself a shotgun

    “Guess what? A shotgun will keep you a lot safer, a double-barreled shotgun, than the assault weapon in somebody’s hands [who] doesn’t know how to use it, even one who does know how to use it,” Biden said. "It’s harder to use an assault weapon to hit something than it is a shotgun. You want to keep people away in an earthquake? Buy some shotgun shells.”

    “Guess what? A shotgun will keep you a lot safer, a double-barreled shotgun, than the assault weapon in somebody’s hands [who] doesn’t know how to use it ...
    Yeah, I'll buy that ... sort of. I'm sure that a shotgun in my hands would beat a rifle that I didn't know how to use. And vice versa. Can't be effectively using what you don't know how to use. But then, that applies to hammers, shoe laces, a whisk, a mop ...

    ... even one who does know how to use it,” Biden said.
    Well, it would depend on who we're speaking of, now wouldn't it?

    Hm. Implying that pellet spread equates to accuracy?

    Biden doesn't claim to be a ballistics or weapons expert, but other experts (here and here) say to carefully choose a self-defense weapon based on what you're comfortable with while keeping in mind your surroundings and situation.
    In that case and in the public interest he should just keep his mouth shut and only speak on subjects he is familiar with if any.

    He also made a comment about people using "30 or 40 clips in a magazine." They are even misusing their own misused terminology now.

    Better yet. Forget Joe Biden in favor of an intelligent person who is actually a statesman.

    So now he's a self-defense expert?

    Following Biden's advice on guns, is about like having a fox to watch over the hen house.

    I don't need his stinkin' advice !

    Turn the election's in 2014 to a "2A Revolution". It will serve as a 1994 refresher not to "infringe" on our Second Amendment. We know who they are now.........SEND 'EM HOME. Our success in this will be proportional to how hard we work to make it happen.

    Smaller folks can't handle a 12 gauge effectively due to the recoil. A semi-automatic rifle is more effective when you have a 30 round mag, and more than 2 aggressors. Unless you're using slugs in that shotgun, the chances of scatter and collateral damage is much greater with an imprecise weapon like a shotgun versus a highly accurate carbine with a red dot or holo-sight. I say the shotgun has it's place, but it's no replacement for a rifle, and never has been. Apples and Oranges. This holds especially true if you are using a side by side shotgun and onyl have two shots. Since Feinstein wants to ban semi-auto and pump shotguns, and any shotgun over 5 rounds capacity, you're even more limited than with a 10 round rifle.

    Yes, valuable advice from someone who will never have to face an intruder in the middle of the night or walk out into an empty parking lot after working late some night.

    Because Feintein could never get the difference between "clips" and "magazines" right, she now calls them ammunition dispensers. Anyone else catch that during her announcement today?
