Is the VP saying I shouldn’t us a Semi-Automatic shotgun for defense? OMG what about that folding stock and pistol grip I have on my Semi-Auto shotgun?

Biden needs a higher wattage bulb to light his pea brain. If you are going to use a shotgun make sure it's a pump because the sound is universal in it's intent. Double barrel is good for bird hunting or a wedding but give me a pumpgun for house calls!

good idea, he should propose that ALL gubbmint secret service protection be armed ONLY with double barrel shotguns.

Biden is as relevant to the gun debate as a Brown Bess musket is to a firefight in Afghanistan.....

It's really ironic (and comical) that obummer got this dork for his V.P. (he probably had no choice in the matter). Biden is well beyond the 'Peter principle'...WELL beyond his level of incompetence. All they need is one-more and we'd have the new three stooges. Oh wait a minute, he has Eric Holder.

He stated that he lives in an area where such a warning is acceptable. Well I live in the city, and if I went on my back patio to shoot off a few rounds, the cops would come and take me away. Since I can't do that, I wonder if he has any other brilliant suggestions about what people like myself should do if we suspect a threat of any kind?

Gun rule #1. If you are going to pull a weapon, be prepared to use it, and not display it hoping to scare somebody.

Bozo Biden said if you are concerned about an intruder in your home,you should go out on the patio and fire two blasts from a shotgun.Meanwhile the intruder is killing your wife or kids.What an idiot.

If you fired two blasts from your patio in Chicago,people would not bat an eye.Just another night in the projects.

Maybe the government could set up a free shotgun program too, just make it similar to the free Obama phone program.

Don't give them any ideas,or they will do it.I'm just waiting for a free car program.How are they going to get to the welfare office and liquor store without a car.Nothing would surprise me from the Obummer camp.

Biden is a breath of fresh air. The stuff he says keeps us laughing enough to take the attention away from Barry for just a little bit.

With the fire power protecting him day and night his wife could walk out with a stick and say "bang bang" and be perfectly safe.

Not only DumBama, but RINO Romney had a car program when he was governor of Mass.

Even a broken clock is right twice a day. Biden might say something right if he'd take his foot outa his mouth.

Biden is a fool. A shotgun is not the best defense if you are facing several intruders or attackers at the same time. Plus there is a lot of mess with a shotgun.

Government telling me what kind of gun I should use to protect myself is no different than telling me what alarm company to use. That's my decision. To each their own.

As they teach in CCW classes, the best firearm to use is the one you feel the most comfortable with. If I hear a noise in the house and am tiptoeing to see what's up, I don't want a long gun getting in my way. I'm hiding behind walls, bobbing my head around corners, so I want my handgun with me and not some shotgun.

And exactly what political office does Romney currently hold that makes your deflection relevant in any way?
Yea I didn't think so. Just typical brain dead lemming liberal spin and deflection.
You won't find a liberal bone in my body. It's the RINO's that are killing our party. The last two presidential elections are proof of that.
