Joe Biden: Self-Protection Advice for Women
You might want to go forward to 1:13.
And people were ridiculing Sarah Palin as not qualified to be Vice-President?
But that’s not the most absurd thing he has said. In an interview with Field & Stream he stated:
Well, the way in which we measure it is—I think most scholars would say—is that as long as you have a weapon sufficient to be able to provide your self-defense. I did one of these town-hall meetings on the Internet and one guy said, “Well, what happens when the end days come? What happens when there’s the earthquake? I live in California, and I have to protect myself.”The irony here is that none of the supposed “gun nuts” would do anything nearly so reckless and irresponsible as what Biden is recommending.
I said, “Well, you know, my shotgun will do better for you than your AR-15, because you want to keep someone away from your house, just fire the shotgun through the door.” Most people can handle a shotgun a hell of a lot better than they can a semiautomatic weapon in terms of both their aim and in terms of their ability to deter people coming.
