“Guess what? A shotgun will keep you a lot safer, a double-barreled shotgun, than the assault weapon in somebody’s hands [who] doesn’t know how to use it, even one who does know how to use it,” the outspoken vice president, a shotgun owner himself, replied. “It’s harder to use an assault weapon to hit something than it is a shotgun. You want to keep people away in an earthquake? Buy some shotgun shells.”

Yes, of course! You see, the lesser recoil, adjustable for arm length stock, better sights. and far faster reloading of the "assault rifle" (Unky Joe means mo dern sporting rifles (MSRs) or military style sporting rifles?) are impediments. Because, you don't have to aim a shotgun, right? And 2 shots are all you'd ever need to defend yourself or "keep people away in an earthquake."
Any attentive gun owner will be scratching his or her head at this point, wondering how the anti gun folk can bray on about how "assault rifles are designed to spray bullets from the hip" (sans aiming, we can assume) but a shotgun that you allegedly don't have to aim is just fine, folks.
Fresh from imparting these hard won tactical lessons from a life of politics in Washington DC (Joe has never served in the military nor law enforcement), our dear drunken, uncle had another sewer of the mouth moment and just happened to mention that:
Nothing we’re going to do is going to fundamentally alter or eliminate the possibility of another mass shooting or guarantee that we will bring gun deaths down to 1,000 a year from what it is now,” he told the group of reporters.Remember folks, fuck those military veterans, cops, and anyone else who tells you otherwise about weapons choices. Especially, those damned sheriffs that keep on running their mouths about Unky Joe's gun control efforts. Look for more nonsensical drivel like this as people that want to ban guns explain that they are on your side because they own a shotgun (like Governor Cuomo )or because they shot a shotgun once like Obama. Also, remember gun control isn't about guns. It's about control.
