Personal Defense Tip: Don’t Take Any Gun-Related Advice From Joe Biden

Biden cops shoot in the leg

Courtesy ABC News

Last night, the tapioca-brained Democratic frontrunner in the race for president held a televised town hall event. Ol’ Joe Biden emerged from his basement long enough to be asked about police reform by one of the people in the audience. He then embarked on a rambling, stammering, nearly-incoherent rhetorical journey that touched on the importance of training police officers in the fine art of de-escalation.

How does Joe think cops who are presented with an active threat should calm things down? Simple. Shoot the perp in the leg, of course.

This idea — which Joe has tried to sell before — has been debunked as foolhardy and ineffective so often we won’t bother doing it again here. Police don’t shoot to wound, they shoot to stop the threat and so should you. We will point out, though, that this isn’t the first time Uncle Joe’s has peddled his half-baked, ill-conceived advice on what to do if you find yourself endangered by the bad guys.

Back when his mental acuity was far sharper than it is these days (and he was trying to sell the country on another “assault weapons” ban), Joe revealed that he’d told his wife that the best way to ward off home invaders is to launch a couple of shotgun blasts in the air from the deck of their home.

During the same ultimately unsuccessful gun control push, Slow Joe, the renowned tactical expert, extolled the virtues of a shotgun over an AR by telling Field & Stream magazine that anyone who thinks they’re endangered should just fire a couple of blasts through their door.

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.

Why didn’t we think of that? Oh, right. Maybe because both warning shots and blind volleys through barriers are dangerous, illegal, and tactically unsound.

This washed-up, addled pensioner has been drawing a public paycheck for the last 47 years. That’s longer than most people in the country have been alive. The bulk of that time was spent legislating. That’s right, “Shotgun” Joe Biden has been putting the wealth of knowledge he’s accumulated — decades of wisdom and experience on guns and other topics regarding daily life — to good use making the laws that affect all Americans.

If that doesn’t scare the hell out of you, check your pulse.

Given all that time he’s spent in “public service,” it’s a real mystery why Biden continually gets it so frightfully wrong when he advises his family, the public, and police officers in self-defense best practices. But don’t worry, when he’s president, he’ll have good advisors close by to make sure that the bills he signs into law are far less ill-conceived than the garbage he spouts on the campaign trail.

        Article 4, Section 4 of the Constitution states:

        “Section. 4.
        The United States shall guarantee to every State in this Union a Republican Form of Government, and shall protect each of them against Invasion; and on Application of the Legislature, or of the Executive when the Legislature cannot be convened) against domestic Violence.”

        This means that Democrats, Socialists, Marxist’s and others who promote “transformation/reimagining” are in violation of the Constitution by their very existence, and should not be allowed any representation in any part of the US Government. Period.

        What’s the difference between a Marxist and a Nazi? Marxists murdered more people and Nazis produced a higher standard of living.

    I didn’t think it was real/current, then I watched the clip, and looked up the original video. Good job Joe you just educated your voters how to get a murder/attempted murder charge and or how to lose your job in law enforcement.

  5. avatar Debbie W. says:

    Jim Crow Gun Control joe is on the hot-seat. Beside the taped evidence of tough guy joe having a Ukraine prosecutor fired now there appears to be hard-drive evidence of joe taking half of hunter’s suspiciously huge paychecks. It’s like joe is a pimp and hunter is his ho.
    This new evidence has the self serving pos enuf trying to put out the fire for joe and hunter. enuf is out in full combat mode trying his best to save biden by upping his slander and libel for the POTUS.
    Little man enuf is stretching guilt by association to the most furthest extent possible in that sick mind of his. Watching enuf blow smoke is like watching the Hindenburg go down in flames.

      Christ, that New York Post article is about as well sourced as the parts in your shitty Taurus.

      1. avatar Void says:

        Debunked by snopes already huh?

        1. avatar Free Kyle says:

          Snopes doesn’t ‘debunk’ they are a propaganda arm of the DNC.

      2. avatar Mark N. says:

        Yes, there are problems with the source, but it appears that the Post has a copy of the hard drive. Some of the data on that drive include videos of Hunter doing sex, drugs, and rock & roll–and that would be really hard to fake. The really big question is who dropped the thing off for repairs and then “forgot” to pick it up? Yes, it smells like a plant, but that doesn’t mean that the data is necessarily fake, it could simply be that Hunter got hacked, and the hacker found an easy way to publish the info without getting caught.

        Meanwhile, the press and the Biden campaign is doing all it can to squash to the story. Reminds me of a line from Shakespeare: “The lady doth protest too much, me thinks.”

        1. avatar Anymouse says:

          Or Hunter could have been so drug addled that he forgot about it. His attorney asked the shop owner to return his client’s property, which is essentially admitting that it’s legit.

        2. avatar Joel says:

          Mark the timing is also very suspect. Around here, we often talk about waiting for all the facts to surface before jumping to conclusions. That doesn’t make this a hoax. I have more questions than answers at this point.

    Low speed, such a drag.

  7. avatar Roger J says:

    Executing a search warrant at a major drug house once I was at the back door of the apartment with another officer when we heard the shotgun blast. We looked at each other with the same serious concern. It was the new guy having trouble with the locked front door. It definitely got the attention of the occupants and my partner an I were very relieved to find no one wounded inside.

  8. avatar Rusty - Molon Labe - Chains says:

    I am just hoping the data they pulled off Hunters laptop sinks Biden/Harris. I am just glad the repair guy made copies before he handed it over to the swamp/FBI.

    1. avatar Shire-man says:

      Fence sitters don’t pay attention and the dem base is like 85% beggars, addicts and criminals anyway so I doubt anything will come of it.

    2. avatar LarryinTX says:

      Did I hear right that the FBI has had the computer for 6 months now? ‘Cuz that is plenty of time for them to be able to say whether it is legit or not. Unless they discovered what it was and shredded it. Wonder if shopowner guy mentioned he kept a copy of the hard drive.

      1. avatar Mark N. says:

        Well, you know what happened with the HRC server scandal and the obstruction of justice by erasing stuff she didn’t want the DOJ to see, right? And the outcome? With Joe being a candidate, one must believe that the FBI will do nothing at all, or at least not until after the election. IF Joe wins, the case file will be closed.

        1. avatar Southern Cross says:

          And then accidentally dropped in the shredder.

  9. avatar GS650G says:

    How about I have an army around me with machine guns for protection like Joe does?

      Isn’t it amazing that we’re supposed to trust politicians with armies, tanks, missiles, spies and nukes when they won’t trust us with a gun.

  10. avatar adverse6 says:

    Good news? When Joe gets elected, he won’t be running the Country, The Socialist Party will be………No,……wait,…….Let me rephrase that, The Political Front For Organized Crime will be running the Country. There, sounds better than “The Socialist Party”, more American somehow.

    1. avatar Hannibal says:

      Nah. You’re falling for the same game that’s been played for decades… maybe longer.

        Would not bet on that.

  11. avatar StLPro2A says:

    Trump just announced that he will ask Slow Joe to be his Top Personal Advisor on every facet of his next four years. He will ask Slow Joe to pontificate direction on every single issue. And, then Trump will do 180 degrees the opposite of Slow Joe’s advise…….cause for 47 years, Slow Joe has been 180 degrees wrong on every issue!!!!! And, Biden’s son for National Training Czar…….cause he can show the Non-Productive Government Plantation Dwellers how to not have any skills or knowledge or initiative but get politicians to pay them millions. Oh, wait, they already do that…on my dime. Trump 2020……..a poor choice, but as always, the lesser of the two evils.

  12. avatar Tim says:

    Joe has lived his entire adult life protected by men with guns. Every time he speaks it is obvious he has no clue how regular people live.

  13. avatar hawkeye says:

    “Back when his mental acuity was far sharper than it is these days…”

    The more historical (er, hysterical?) clips I see of this guy, the more I wonder whether he ever was any kind of sharp.

    1. avatar Victoria Illinois says:

      I think he’s like Maxine Waters. None of the democrats like her, but she’s the kid they call when they need someone to do their dirty work on camera. She does the outrageous name- calling and they can say “I didn’t say that.”
      Remember they always said “He’s just crazy Joe. He didn’t mean what he said.” Yep, they gave him the script to read.

    2. avatar Ralph says:

      “Back when his mental acuity was far sharper than it is these days…”

      Like the time he told a guy in a wheelchair to stand up and be recognized?

      1. avatar Lotso Fatso says:

        One thing’s for sure: Biden is not a polished, measured speaker like Donny Heelspurs.

          “Biden is not a polished, measured speaker like…”

          Interesting…

          “….Joe Biden received similar deferments. During college he received 4 student Vietnam War draft deferments and received another in 1968 after graduating from college and starting in law school. The last one was because of asthma….” Writer asks if anyone has seen Biden use an inhaler.

  14. avatar Old Guy in Montana says:

    “You’re working for me, man!” the worker said.

    “I’m not working for you,” Biden said. “Don’t be such a horse’s ass.”

    “You’re full of shit” – Joe Biden

    “Guess what? You’re not allowed to own any weapon.” – Joe Biden

    These quotes are from 03/10/2020 at a live event where Biden was asked about the Second Amendment…I think Pervy Joe stated his position well ENUF for anyone with a room temperature I.Q. to understand.

    1. avatar Dude says:

      Classy Joe always picking fights and punching down. I’d rather have someone that fights back against the snobby elite.

    2. avatar Shire-man says:

      Some of that civility and integrity we’ve been missing.

    3. avatar TA Boles says:

      Too bad forum troll ENUF doesn’t even have a room temperature IQ …. unless we are talking in Celsius

    The only people more senile than Basement Joe are his voters.

  17. avatar Dude says:

    Another Pro Tip: Don’t take data security advice from Hunter Biden.

    Hillary Clinton’s strategy of smashing her personal devices with a hammer makes much more sense than high as a kite Hunter’s strategy of dropping off his laptop for a repair, and promptly forgetting about it…

    They’re already shooting them in the leg. And the chest, the face, the back, the back of the face. Don’t want to bother with your gun?

    Americans have the right to be armed. Being armed should not be a trigger to give government employees the ability to vlaim they feared for their safety and the armed citizen was an active threat. If the government employee is armed then under the 2nd Amendment the citizen must have the right and abilty to be armed agaonst the threat posed by the armed government employee.

  22. avatar Colt Magnum says:

    So ..let’s see. Biden referred to the recent Rochester case, where the officer was chased by a man with a large knife. Biden feels that having a social worker there could help. Yes, the bad guy could stab the social worker and his knife get stuck, this reducing the risk to the officer. I think officer did an excellent job of de-escalating the situation. Once he shot the bad guy, the danger level de-escalated to zero rather quickly.

  23. avatar Montana Actual says:

    C’MON MAN!

  24. avatar John in AK says:

    I vividly remember one of my first calls as a rookie cop, early winter, early morning, a man wakes up to hear noises in his home’s basement and finds a bit of ‘local colour’ (aka: street person) trying to climb back out of the window he’d broken. In the heat of the moment, the homeowner touched off a single round of 125g .357 Magnum JHP at about 20ft, hitting the erstwhile burglar in the back of his right calf.

    The wound exposed the tibia from the rear; The calf muscle erupted like a flower, leaving a saucer-sized hole. About two pints of blood surrounded the soon-to-be corpse, who ‘died’ in the ambulance but managed to survive after a tourniquet, emergency surgery, and several units of whole blood, as a cripple.

    Oh, yeah. ‘Shoot ’em in the leg.’ THAT’s the ticket.

  25. avatar Tom Lindley says:

    Does Biden know what a “de-escalating” shot to the leg that strikes the femoral artery will do?

    1. avatar Old Guy in Montana says:

      um, permanently de-escalate…?

      Biden is so cognitively impaired that he has become merely a parrot reciting the sound bites his owners have spoon-fed him…he reminds me of a very needy (and cranky) Grey Parrot.

  26. avatar Montana Actual says:

    All this talk of an unfit President in regards to Trump, but everyone overlooks the fact that a potential commander in chief of the military would advise people to ignore collateral damage, put their lives at risk, and disregard hundreds of years of tactical and self defense evolution/wisdom to try and shoot to wound smaller harder to hit extremities. Kind of makes you wonder how someone like that is competent enough to command military operations. Bet if someone came gunning for him and secret service or his current private security detail would take 100 shots trying to wound and striking someone innocent in the background he’d have a change of heart. Kind of surprised we haven’t already found out. Dumbasses in “wolverine militia” going after softies compared to tyrants like Sleepy Joe.

  27. avatar Mike Carbine says:

    Shoot em in the leg, eh Joe? Just like you and the rest of the Dems did back in 75′? When you all voided out all the sacrifice of the entire Vietnam conflict and all the efforts in SEA? It was you damn Dems that voted for escalating the efforts there in 65′.

    Millions of people died in camps and on the high seas thanks to good oll’ joe & the 94th United States Congress, may you all burn in Hellfire…

  28. I think shooting the leg is barbaric. Why not aim for the pinky toe? Me and Joe watch the same movies and those guys are excellent shots. They can blow up cars with a pistol from a hundred yards away. Hell i saw Rambo shoot a 60 one handed and blow up a helicopter with an arrow. We should demand more from our Police. I mean really.
