In a new tact to dissuade American gun owners from purchasing AR-15s, Vice President Joe Biden told an Facebook Q and A audience today it’s easier to hit people with an shotgun than with an “assault rifle.”
Moreover, Biden believes the very sound of a shotgun being fired is so frightening that he said he instructs his wife to fire two round rounds in the air, from the balcony of their, to scare off intruders when he’s gone.
Biden said if you do that, “I promise you whoever’s coming is not gonna. 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 to protect yourself.”
Biden then told the Facebook audience–“Buy a shotgun.”
This is the second time in as many months that Biden has gone down this path. In late January, while responding to a question about using an “assault weapon” for protection, Biden said:
Guess what, a shotgun will keep you a lot safer…than an assault weapon in someone’s that doesn’t know how to use it–even one who does know how to use it.
If you want to keep people away in an earthquake, buy some shotgun shells.
