    Why Joe Biden's "double-barrel" comment is stupid - let me count the ways

    Okay, it has taken me a few days to address the Vice Perpetrator's idiotic comment about double-barreled shotguns being all one needs to protect oneself, by stepping out onto the porch and firing two shots into the air. This is because I've been so stunned by the sheer stupidity of the comment, and because it's so wrong on so many levels, that it defies belief. So I'll lay them out in order:

    Reason #1: Stepping out onto the porch. This one should actually speak for itself, but just in case there are liberals reading, I'll spell out the reason why this is a bad idea: You don't step outside when you hear a potential threat. Period. The one exception is if you're a finalist for a Darwin Award and want to seal the deal. Remember your instructions to instead cower in a corner and dial 911?

    Reason #2: Discharging a firearm is unlawful in most municipal areas. This can result in fines, jail times, and being stuck in a Police station lobby where there's a risk of Diane Feinstein appearing on the TV.

    Reason #3: Let's try some rudimentary math here. In a double-barreled shotgun, as the name implies, 2 rounds = 100% of your readily-available ammunition. Thus, if one fires two (2) warning shots, that's 100% of your immediately available ammunition fired. Since a double-barreled shotgun is an extremely complicated device, let me explain that this constitutes a reload of the weapon (100% - 100% = 0%). If the potential threat is any smarter than an Obama voter, he or she will quickly perform this complicated formula in their head and deduce that.... tada! .... a reload is required to further use the weapon. Many bad things can happen while said reload is being performed. Which leads me to.....

    Reason #4: The Great Sage sadly left his tactical instructions at firing the warning shots. Now what?????

    Reason #5: There might be more than two potential attackers. Now let's suppose that all goes well and the first two are each taken out by one round (Remember the formula above). How quickly can a reload be performed while attacker #3 charges the porch? Or #4, #5, etc....?

    Reason #6: Bullets, or in this case pellets, fired into the air will eventually have to come back down somewhere. Sir Isaac Newton will back me up on this one. And since the most minute variation of the angle of the barrel from which a pellet was fired can affect the trajectory of said pellet, the heroic warning shot shooter has no real idea of where one might land. But it will indeed land somewhere. Trust me on this.

    Reason #7: There will be no movie cameras rolling while this event takes place, no outlaws on horseback who will suddenly head for the hills, and no Director to yell "Cut!" if things go wrong. "Advice" like this can get people killed.

    Feel free to add your own.

    8 you may shoot your telephone line down rendering your police calling alarm usless

    9 you may shoot the power line into coming into your home plunging you into darkness at night and or electrocuting yourself day or night

    10 You may hit some Federally protected bird flying overhead and be subject to a felony charge.

    11 You may have tree limbs over your porch and shoot some federally protected bug or frog again gaining a felony charge.

    12 you could shoot a hole in your porch roof. Some porches do have them I think.

    I think firing a double-barreled shotgun into the air would compromise your hearing at a time when you need it most.

    Yes but ARE YOU SURE this so called Guarantee is WORTH THE PAPER IT'S PRINTED ON???
    Firing a suppressed is on my Bucket List.

    I'm just a spoke in the wheel but not a big deal.

    America...a Constitutional Republic. NOT a democracy as the liberals would have us believe.

    I think the legal aspect has been covered. Lets look at the safety portion. His actions would violate 2 very important safety rules.

    1. Never point a gun at anything you do not intend to kill or destroy.
    2. Be sure of your target and what's beyond it.

    To top it off ...

    The other day, Fox news showed a google satelite view of Joe's property ... it is adjacent to a School and borders the property. He is a moron! I cant believe Obama hasnt "punched" him in the mouth over this.

    I LOVE that suggestion. We should all go out and fire 2 shots off our porches. Cokeman, you go first.

    The lead from the pellets coming down will pollute the ground water, and then Obama and Biden's Enviro-nazis will roll you up for that.

    My sentiments exactly, but the monkier "buffoon" is way too complimentary for him.
