Double Barrel Biden on Armed Self-Defense: Fire Your Shotgun Through Your Door

Joe Biden shows us how it's done (courtesy

Joe “Double Barrel” Biden had a sit down with the editors of Field and Stream. Hot on the heels of his self-defense tip to Parents magazine readers—respond to a home invasion by stepping outside and firing two warning shots from a double barreled shotgun—the Obama administration’s front man on civilian disarmament offered more unconventional advice to armed Americans facing a deadly threat inside their home . . .

F&S: What about the other uses, for self-defense and target practice?

BIDEN: 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.”
