Joe Biden says shotguns can’t shoot through walls

Joe BidenJoe “Shotgun” Biden is advocating for his favorite form of self-defense again, claiming that using a shotgun to fire at a home intruder is safer than using an AR-15 — because shotgun shells can’t penetrate walls.

The Vice President appeared on MSNBC‘s ‘Morning Joe‘ on Thursday to participate in a roundtable discussion on gun control. And naturally, the VP couldn’t resist making another ludicrous claim about shotguns.

“You know, they make fun of my saying about use a shotgun if someone’s invading your home,” he said. “Guess what — use a shotgun [on] someone invading your home — you don’t kill your kids. Use an AR-15, it goes through your wall and it can kill your kid in the bedroom.”

In previous statements on gun control, Biden recommended firing a shotgun through the door and explained how he told wife Jill to “fire two blasts outside the house” — something that’s even of questionable legality.

During his ‘Morning Joe‘ appearance, Biden also explained that many people no longer own guns merely for hunting purposes, but instead purchase them for self-protection or because they simply like firing an assault weapon.

“They like the way it feels,” he said. “They just — you know, it’s like driving a Ferrari.”

The VP also praised host Joe Scarborough for supporting harsher gun control measures.

“You have changed the debate in America,” he stressed at the end of the show. “You. You. The two guys that deserve — if anything gets done — an award here are you and Michael Bloomberg.

“I don’t know if that’s going to help me in a future Republican primary, but thank you so much,” Scarborough joked.

No, getting an endorsement from Joe “Shotgun” Biden probably won’t help.
