Biden: If you want to protect your home after an earthquake, get a shotgun

In arguing against AR-15s and other ‘assault weapons’, Biden was asked his response to the concern some have in defending their home after an earthquake when the pillagers and thieves are out. Biden’s solution is to get a shotgun and some shotgun shells:

    I need target practice –

    I wonder who I can get to hold the target

    • nibblesyble


  • bjohnson55

    I am sure he would be happy to be limited to a shotgun since the people protecting him and his family have fully automatic M-16s with grenade launchers, RPG’s and full body armor. What a complete schmuck.

  • Watchman74

    I’m surprised he didn’t say get a slingshot and some rocks.

    • bbitter

      I love how he is ironically hypocritical in that only is good for defense.

      …we’re missing the important point here. Bind-in-his-pants just admitted that there is a NEED to defend yourself and that there are circumstances where the government CAN’T protect you or come to your aid in anything like a timely fashion.

      The sad thing is that he doesn’t seem to think you should be allowed to defend your home with the weapons designed to be most effective in defending a home. The AR was designed in form and structure to be used in close quarters as well at range.

      This is like telling a baseball player being told that he can wear a cup, but is prohibited from wearing a helmet, let alone the ludicrous idea of using a clearly offensive bat – useless for defense, when he walks up to the plate and waits for the pitch.

  • stage9

    How about I get what the HECK I WANT and you can SUCK IT!

    • aZjimbo

      Amen to that.

  • clockwindingdown

    Good old joe, expert on everything master at none!

    • mikeinidaho

      Au contrere! I believe I heard he was a master baiter, in his younger days.
      Nowadays he can’t even find it.

  • sDee

    Please mister can I have this shotgun? Please? Please? I promise I will vote for you and sned my children to your indoctrination camps if you let me have it. Please. Please, Mr. Government man?

  • mjs_28s

    Would this be the shotgun that would be taken from me like from that old lady in New Orleans who had her hand gun taken by police?

  • Sober_Thinking

    He’s a complete boob… what an absolute moron. He talks long before what little is left of his brain engages… Honestly, I’ve never known a more gaffe-prone imbecile.

    An “assault” rifle is more complicated to use? What a clown.

  • sDee

    Wild Bill says to watch the other hand of the gun grabbers.

    • nibblesyble

      Thanks for the link sDee. That man is wise and people would do well to listen. Plus I love a man in a cowboy hat!

  • snowshooze

    I nearly died when I saw the look on that Reporter’s face as he tried to reconcile that statement!
    Yep, shotguns are very effective… but then… um… so you want to go after what?

    Biden is right, hard to beat a shotgun.

    But when trying to blast a bear off of my back.. could you please use something else?

  • One heartbeat away from presidency…just sayin’…

    • nibblesyble

      God save us!

    • Orangeone

      Not much more comfortable that crybaby Boehner is 3rd in line

      • Not much but In would take Boehner over that buffoon any day.

        • PatrickHenrysBody

          Barely even Boehner.

    • scary!

    Sen. Dianne Feinstein opens up anti-gun presser with a prayer

    During the prayer, Hall asked God to “bless our elected leaders with the wisdom and the courage needed to bring about the changes that the people demand.”


    • Orangeone

      Well I’m demanding Barky, Hitlary, Rice, Biden and many others be arrested and put on trial for murder, treason, perjury and a host of other crimes. So let’s get started!

  • NYGino

    Talk nice to them. See how effective it is with Islamos.

  • CO2isGood

    When they arm his protectors with only shotguns maybe I will consider his advice, but probably not because it is just so dang stupid.

  • E. Lee Zimmerman

    Here’s my two cents on ‘Say It Ain’t So, Joe’ today …

  • NYGino

    I know what you’re thinking Mr. armed to your teeth with multiple 40 round clips, Mr. looter who thinks it’s time to plunder, pillage and rape after this earthquake, since this here is a double barrel shotgun and with all the noise, you’re wondering “did he shoot one round or two?”

    Well in all the excitement I also forgot. Anyway, since you have about two hundred rounds at your disposal I have to ask myself a question.

    “What difference, at this point, does it make?”

    • WIDDM – the new bracelet for the left.

  • celestiallady

    I have no words for this moron!

  • mikeinidaho

    BITE ME, Biteme!
    It’s not your job to tell me what to use to protect my life, my family’s life and my property.
    Go back to contemplating your navel or whatever other deep thinking project you have going. And sit down and shut up. If you want a war, keep pushing the citizens of this Republic. But be VERY careful what you wish for.

    • Orangeone

      He can also go back to telling newly elected female Dems to spread them since that is their favorite pasttime and have services available if an “inconvenience” comes their way from that behavior.

  • Amy

    Well, the M4 is the first choice for close quarter battle, but somehow I doubt that’s what the buffoon has in mind…

  • Sandra123456

    Joe opens mouth and removes all doubt: He’s a MORON.

    He actually has stumbled into the truth a bit. Shotguns can put one helluva hole in you if the shooter is using slugs. An AR-15 outs a small hole in you. But this fact escapes gun dummies. They ban the .22, but that powerful 12 guage shotgun is A ok

  • KenInMontana

    Okay Joe, I’ll take one of these;

    • Sandra123456

      Does Senator Di Fi know about this? It’ll ruin her day.

      We got to get some Metal Storm weapons:

      • That’s going on my Christmas wish list right now! 🙂 Talk about an awesome piece of firepower!

        • Sandra123456

          Mine too! Two thumbs up. Bet it is not on Di Fi’s banned weapons list.

    • Dukehoopsfan

      I’ll have one too please.

    • stage9

      Oh HECK yeah!

    • Watchman74
  • Betsey_Ross

    Often mistaken, but never in doubt.

  • Someone needs to send Biteme the video that Scoop had on here recently showing the different holes from an AR-15 and a shotgun and ask him which does the most damage… Yet they ban the AR-15 and promote a Shotgun… On second thought, nobody send the video to him, wouldn’t want to be giving him ideas.

    • Amy

      Shush!! Let them think the only scary guns out there are ones that start with AR! 😉

    • Orangeone

      Did you see this from the Mills Fleet Farm CEO? Ducking hunting shotgun much more dangerous than AR-15!

      • snowshooze

        Orangeone… that was great!
        I hooked up at that site just to get an attaboy to Stewart.

        • Orangeone

          For once, a Conservative MN large business owner (lots of small ones like me but large guys kiss the O butt).  I drive an extra 30 minutes to shop there now to support him!  Guns and ammo, as well as lots of other things flying off the shelves and everyone is talking about his stance!  Online ordering available too 🙂

          • snowshooze

            Is that the Fleet-n-Farm I saw in Wisconsin?

            • Orangeone

              Fleet Farm is a MN company, the one in the video is Baxter, MN (northern MN by Brainerd).  I wish ours in the cities had a range.
              The have locations in MN, WI and IA

  • notebene

    That’s rich, hypocritical advise coming from a man who just voted himself a lifetime’s worth of security detail on our tax dollars! You want my weapons, Biden? Molon labe!

  • guppymanster

    My guns are not for hunting or target practice. They are safeguards against a tyrannical government.

    “No land can be secured otherwise than by disarming the people. The possession of arms is the distinction between a freeman and a slave. He, who has nothing, and who himself belongs to another, must be defended by him whose property he is and needs no arms. But he, who thinks he is his own master and has what he can call his own, ought to have arms to defend himself, and what he possesses else he lives precariously and at no discretion.

    You must understand therfore, that there are two ways of fighting, by law and by force. The first way is natural to all men, and the second to beasts. But as the first way often proves inadequate; one must have means to resort to the second.”
    Machiavelli The Prince
    “The right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be infinged…”
    James Madison 1789
    “The Constitution shall never be construed ….to prevent the people of the United Sates who are peaceful citizens from keeping their own arms.” Samuell Adams

    “One of the chief guarantees of freedom under any government, no matter how popular or respected, is the right of the citizens to keep and bear arms… the right of citizens to bear arms is just one more guarantee against arbitrary government and one more safe guard against a tyranny which now appears remote in America, but which historically has proved to be possible.”
    Democratic Vice President Hubert H Humphrey

    You mean like when Katrina survivors were allowed to keep their weapons to protect themselves?

    The Untold Story of Gun Confiscation After Hurricane Katrina

  • My guns are not for earthquakes JOE WINK WINK!!

  • TitaniumEagle

    I’m um, pretty sure, that a semi-auto weapon is easier to use than a shotgun.

  • jrt1031

    He is such a bafoon

  • sybilll

    The party that voted God out of their platform invokes God when it is convenient. Shameless ghouls. Every one of them.

  • ryanomaniac

    I think my 40 cal. will do for me.

  • Watchman74

    Why is a shotgun ok and a AR-15 not ok?

    • stage9

      Because you can’t hit a hostile target with a shotgun at 300 meters.

      If a hostile can get within the range of a shotgun, you’re already dead.

      And that’s how liberals prefer us.

  • Orangeone

    Maybe Biden should have a chat with Bloomer about people having shotguns during natural disasters. Crime and pillage was rampant in NY with Sandy!

  • madnessofjack

    Ruger has a “take action” page to send a message to our representatives that gun owners take their gun rights seriously and wont stand idly by as the “progressives” seek to cripple the 2nd amendment.

    Please help and spread this around

  • What if you have that double barrel shotgun and miss the 2 shots or there’s more than 2 people! then your screwed and this is why we need assault rifles! All these people who did these shooting were mentally ill and had record of it! so don’t take the assault rifles away from people who don’t have mental illnesses!

    • snowshooze

      I’m certain Ol’ Joe would be comfortable with me blasting a bear off his back with my trusty double barrel.

  • odin147

    Arrogance of a liberal

  • white531

    In order to really understand the low depths this nation has achieved, all you have to do is watch Joe Biden speak. Can anyone among you give me an example of someone during the formation of this great country, who would be like Joe Biden?

    Dumb question, I know.

    • kong1967

      Actually, I don’t think that’s a dumb question. Our founding fathers were much smarter than the crooks in Washington now. I doubt they would have tolerated the presence of such an ignorant a$$ like Biden.

  • bobemakk

    Biden, the “gaffe king” makes an A$$ of himself as usual.

  • kong1967

    I’d rather be shot with an AR-15 than a shotgun. A shotgun can blow your entire freaking head off.

    • James1754

      But not at 100 yards.

      • kong1967

        That’s true. Good point.

  • truthonlyplz

    how about I use whichever gun I please and you keep your anti-constitutional hands of my
    God given, not government given, freedom and right to protect myself and family. 237 years the constitution and God has kept us free, wake up America, write and call your senators and rep’s, don’t sit there and do nothing, thank God our founders weren’t panzies

  • americalsgt

    Sure Joe, and let me guess. We go along with this and the first time a kid gets shot with a 12 gauge, you’ll be telling me to turn in my pistol grip Mossberg. The answer is NO. Then what, are you going after my Red Rider BB Gun and while you’re at it, don’t forget to pick up my Shuns and Sabatiers Chef knives with a blade more than 3 inches. We the American people are sick and tired of the lies from you and the rest of your crew.

    • James1754

      Actually your pistol grip Mosburg is illegal in New York under the just passed law and it would also be illegal under the proposed law in Maryland. When you put a pistol grip on it it became an assault weapon.

      • americalsgt

        Thanks James, I’ll make a point of avoiding NY and MD when I move from RI to SC. In July, I turn 66 and at FRA, all bet are off with the condescending liberals I work for in NY.
        Really appreciate your input.

        • James1754

          Even the democrats in the South would not try to pass this kind of stupidity.

  • Myptofvu

    That Joe always mixing up his words, what he meant to say was “If you want to protect your Country against progressives……..”

  • sickandtired

    That is the most ludicruos garbage I have ever heard. I bet he owns more than a shotgun.

    The comments he made tells me he is completely ignorant of firearms.

    I guess I should have just said he was ignorant period!

  • James1754

    According to Old Joe, the self-defense expert, the best weapon to use is a double barrel shotgun. Let me see now, that is two shots with a range of about 15 to 20 yards. Yep, that is what I want to bet my life on when the nearest police help is days away.
