SNIP: And they fit nicely in ladies’ handbags
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.
“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.
