Last month you might remember that Vice President Biden was asked by a reader of Parents Magazine whether citizens would be able to defend themselves if the President’s assault weapons ban were passed.
Know-it-all Biden quickly responded that, “If you want to protect yourself, get a double-barrel shotgun, have the shells, a 12-gauge shotgun.”
He then goes on to explain that he’s given this exact same advice to his wife, Jill, since they live in a fairly secluded wooded area. If anyone or anything threatens them, all Jill has to do is, “walk out on the balcony here, walk out, put that double-barrel shotgun and fire two blasts outside the house. I promise you, whoever’s coming in is not going to.”
Biden then characterizes assault weapons as basically useless, stating that, “You don’t need an AR-15. It’s harder to aim, it’s harder to use. And in fact, you don’t need 30 rounds.” While speaking, the Vice President holds up his hands as if he’s aiming, suggesting that he really knows what he’s talking about.
Biden was roundly criticized for his ignorant comments. On Twitter, Ben Shapiro wryly noted to the VP that, once the double-barreled shotgun was fired, “your gun is [now] empty, moron.”
And then, the following video was produced, demonstrating exactly how ignorant Biden really is:
