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.”

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.
The irony here is that none of the supposed “gun nuts” would do anything nearly so reckless and irresponsible as what Biden is recommending.
