SNIP: And they fit nicely in ladies’  handbags

Daily Caller

 

Vice President Joe Biden said it’s easier to hit a target with shotgun than an assault weapon during his first-ever “Fireside Hangout” on gun violence Thursday, hosted on the White House’s Google Plus page.

Biden made the remark to defend his position that banning assault weapons will not impede the safety of American gun owners.

“A shotgun will keep you a lot safer — a double-barreled shotgun — than an assault weapon in somebody’s hand who doesn’t know how to use it, even one who does know how to use it,” Biden said. “You know, it’s harder to use an assault weapon to hit something than it is a shotgun.”

The vice president was responding to a question from prominent 27-year old video blogger Philip Defranco, who hosts a series of Web videos called “The Vloggity,” and also starred in a web series entitled “Hooking Up,” with various other Internet celebrities.

    My shotgun, loaded with 6 rounds of Dragons Breath, is my last line of defense. I don’t want to wait until they’re at my front door to have to use it. At 100 yards my AR15 will work just fine, but I’d prefer to catch them at about 300 yards with my M1A.

    I bet he uses 12 gauges shells for a butt plug. Someone should tap on that round shiny thing in the middle of the shell with a ball peen hammer after he has it in place.

    How did someone this stupid become VP of the United States?

    ” A shotgun will keep you a lot safer than than an assault weapon in somebody’s hand…even someone who knows how to use it”. Based on the wisdom of our VP, the US Armed Forces will now be trading in their M4′s and M16A2′s for shotguns?

    But pushing legislation to ban shotguns would be a step to far at this point, wouldn’t it Joe. That might actually start a revolt, and we can’t have that.

    “You know, it’s harder to use an assault weapon to hit something than it is a shotgun.”

    Then why ban them? What’s the difference?

    Why don’t the idjits on the Left JUST SAY IT?!?!?!

    They want ALL of the guns! They want civilians to be totally UNARMED! They want the 2nd Amendment GONE!! (Along with most all of the Constitution, actually.)

    But, no, they have to expose us to brain-hemorrhaged asshats like Joe BiteMe and Pisser Morgoth. They figure, at some point, we’ll just want them to go away at any price, so we will GIVE them our Constitutional RIGHT!

    You notice he said “…double-barreled shotgun…”?

    That’s because they’re trying to ban pumps & semi-auto’s.

    If a legal shotgun is a better defense weapon than an AR-15, then an illegal sawed-off shotgun would be better still, eh Joey?

    Pinko nails it. If Assault weapons are so crappy why ban them they are obviously too difficult for normal people to use?

    Tell ya what Joe, let’s put your little theory to the test, you take your shot gun and I’ll take my LaRue 7.62 OBR. We’ll meet in Gettysburg, you start out coming across the field at Pickett’s Charge and I’ll set up shop on the other side near The Angle and let’s see who wins?… Hell, I’ll even let you bring Diane Feinstein, Hillary Clinton, Harry Reid, and Harrison J Bounel with you…

    Biden’s as sharp as a pineapple. And this is the General leading the Prog Gun Ban campaign.

    It is a testament to our Idiocracy, that with the Prog apparatus behind him, it just might succeed.
