Homeowner Takes Biden's Shotgun Advice, Gets Arrested

Homeowner Takes Biden's Shotgun Advice, Gets Arrested

During the past few days and weeks, VP Joe Biden has been passing out advice on how to use a shotgun–the problem is, much of what he has advised is against the law. Virginia Beach resident Trevor Snowden found this out the hard way when he fired “a shotgun through the door” and faced charges for “reckless handling of a firearm.”

The 22-year old Snowden fired through a door after seeing two masked men by a window of his residence. 

It was during an interview with Field & Stream that Biden said one of the pluses of using  a shotgun for home defense over an AR-15 is that you can “just fire the shotgun through the door” to keep people away from your house. 

The problem with this advice, as Trevor Snowden discovered, it that using a shotgun in that manner is illegal. 

As Breitbart News pointed out in another place, this goes right along with Biden’s suggestion that homeowners randomly fire shotguns into the air to scare off intruders–after all, that is what he tells his wife to do if she hears someone outside when he’s not home.  Yet firing guns into the air within city limits is illegal as well.
