VP Joe Biden Says Shotguns Are More Deadly/Accurate Than Semi-Auto Rifles
The White House is making an effort to use more technology in communicating directly with people and one of the new ways it’s doing that is with Google Hangouts with Joe Biden.
Called a “Fireside Hangout” today was Biden’s first.
During the hangout Biden made several statements regarding gun control.
“A shotgun will keep you a lot safer — a double-barreled shotgun — than an assault weapon in somebody’s hand who doesn’t know how to use it, even one who does know how to use it,” Biden said. “You know, it’s harder to use an assault weapon to hit something than it is a shotgun.”
Biden was speaking in response to a question about how new gun legislation would affect people who want to defend themselves during natural disasters, when law enforcement may be overwhelmed or unavailable.
“You want to keep people away in an earthquake? Buy some shotgun shells!” Biden said.
