    WASHINGTON -- Vice President Biden has offered another colorful argument to make his case that gun owners are better off having a shotgun than an assault weapon.

    Biden has gotten a lot of grief from gun rights advocates for advising gun owners to scrap their AR-15s and "buy a shotgun." But Thursday, Vice President Biden doubled down on his argument that the shotgun is a superior weapon for protecting oneself and property.

    "They make fun of my saying, 'Use a shotgun if someone is invading your home,'" Biden said during a roundtable discussion on gun control hosted by MSNBC's Morning Joe. "Guess what? Use a shotgun if someone is invading your home you don't kill your kids. Use an AR-15 (and the bullet) goes through a wall and can kill your kid in the bedroom."

    We have elected our share of morons to political office in Canada, that's for sure. Some of them have been bona fide droolers.

    No offence, but Joe Biden?.................he's real special.

    I doubt he can read and comprehend so all of the ballistic studies that have been done on bullet penetration inside of homes would be worthless to him.

    I recall when Reagan was shot a secret service agent pulled out his full auto uzi. I guess they didn't realize how ineffective as a defensive weapon it was, or cared if an innocent bystander was hit on the street by a spray of bullets. But they did have him immediately put it away. It's frightening how our addle-brained VP doesn't get impeached. The things he says isn't funny anymore.:confused:

    Actually I love this idiot! Every time he open his mouth he says something more stupid and funny then the last time. I swear I do think that he helps our side with his dumb comments.

    Any round incapable of penetrating drywall cannot be effective against an intruder.

    Yep. That's why I only keep an airsoft pistol around. Those 6mm pastic BBs will not go thru the drywall here in VA, and kill my kid (who lives in Lancaster PA)
    :D

    I think he is personal protection for Obama. Nobody wants to see Biden as President.

    Are they the only choices for HD...a shotgun or an AR-15. I would never use an AR-15 for HD inside my home...gang of zombies kicking down my door another story all together.

    In the late 70s and early 80s I played beer league hockey in the University of Delaware Ice Arena. One of my teammates lived in North West Del. between Wilmington and Kennett Square, PA, which is the area Biden lived in at the time, and may still. This guy hated Biden. He said he didn't know how the guy got elected Senator, as he said he would not have won dog catcher in his own area. He said Biden was an arragant Azzhat who was pretty much universally disliked.

    I did not ask if he knew if Joe had a shotgun or not.

    Joe Biden was selected as BHO's running mate for 1 reason and 1 reason only.

    If anyone can make our Telepromter In Chief look smart... It's Joe Biden.

    Biden now lives in Greenville DE which is actually Southwest of Wilmington, more towards UD in Newark.

    IMO, a handgun is the best choice for HD.

    If the choices are between a shotgun, and an AR, I'd probably choose the AR. I feel it's easier to maneuver than my shotty (18"), and I MUCH prefer the sights on it to the bead on my shotgun. I feel that out of the two, I would do much better with an AR. Over penetration could be an issue, unless you use ammo designed for less penetration. Either way, I plan on buying a home out in the country in a few years, so over penetration become less of an issue. Like I said though, I'd prefer a nice, powerful handgun for HD.

    Dao said Biden is universally disliked, just like his universal BC.
