    For one its illegal to step outside and shoot randomly in the air. If you are going to fire you should fire at an attacker that is a real physical threat.
    And the second mistake is if you did this you now have an empty weapon and have let the attacker know exactly where you are with that empty weapon

    @Waynestew it was a STUPID suggestion. I will be as dramatic as I want. Or have they changed the first amendment too?

    Unlike Hollywood, if an illegal intruder/assaulter recognizes that you have a weapon in hand, it should be the split second between seeing the gun and recognizing that he's dead. All "negotiations" need to occur when the person is outside the house. If you decide to point, then you've decided to click.

    @DerivePI I agree. Joe is assuming that the criminal isn't inside your house. I won't be shooting at someone who's outside anyway because they aren't a legitimate threat, unless they are trying to burn my house down.

    Is Biden telling us to break the law.I believe that most cities hav a law against discharging a weapon within the city limits? What else does this nimrod NOT know about personal responsibility?

    assault weapons are increadably inaccurate. However you can't miss with a shotgn. A shot from one barrel should be enough to discourage anyone. That 2nd shell can do severe damage.

    VP is a fool, he watches to much TV. You do not fire into the air and you do not fire warning shots. Bullets fired into the air must come down somewhere, or in someone, or something. Good Lord, the VP's proving to be the best argument they got for gun control.
    The firearms challenged should not have guns.
    Just blast off a round anywhere you want, lmao...

    So if the criminal is inside my house, I'm supposed to leave my son and run outside and shoot into the air? Right. That will work. No thanks Joe.

    That's not what he was saying. He's assuming the person is outside trying to get in. He is saying if she (his wife specifically in their home) shoots off a round outside (Where the potential intruders are) it would scarep them off.

    @Waynestew Well perhaps she needs to take a gun safety course. You aren't supposed to fire unless it is a legitimate threat to your life. Or if he is trying to burn her house down. Clearly if Mr. Biden is suggesting that his wife just fire randomly like that, he isn't a responsible gun owner.

    @AnnieO A warning shot is not randon. It is a direct acknowledgment that you have a firearm and are capable of using it to the potential threat. Many people choose to do this when they don't want to kill someone and they want that person to back down. I learned this in a gun safety class. Though he did not suggest this be done in every situation.

    @Waynestew Firing your weapon without a target is pretty random in my opinion. A person outside your home is not a threat that requires a warning shot. I'm glad I didn't take your particular gun safety course. I took mine from an ex military decorated soldier who is now a law enforcement official. I'll take his advice over Joe Biden's any day...don't shoot unless its a threat to your safety.

    I will still keep my AR, but I will agree that a shotgun will do some damage. Firing in the air, ground, or at a person is going to be situational. If I feel like my life is threatened, I will not hesitate. If my life is not threatened, I might shoot into the ground. It's easy to say what you would do in the moment, but when it really happens its quite different.

    Finally a sensible answer from an AR owner. Why do others not see this is good advice even if they disagree with his politics?
  • #79
    !
    @Waynestew because its stupid advice. From a tactical point of view. Shotguns are fine in some situations. But with TAP ammo an AR doesn't penetrate any more than a shotgun. I will take thirty rounds over two every time. Where are u carrying extra ammo for that double barrel at night in your underwear ?
  • #100

    @NTBFW In close quarters I would rather have a shotgun. A double barrel would not be my first choice, but the concept is sound. People need to use what they are comfortable with. Right now I have a gun hidden in almost every room of my house, with a shotgun 3 feet away from my bed. I'm going to grab that first, if I shoot 8 rounds without hitting my target I'm going to go to my .45 on my nightstand. That's only if my life or my family is threatened. I own 200+ acres and have scared many people off my property by killing that worm in the dirt. I see your point though.

    @JoinCCA I get yours too. I have several 870's around. What I don't agree with is Biden telling people a double barreled shotgun. Or him trying to give tactical advice.

    As usual the dumbest man ever to be elected to public office says something dumb again! When your wife fires in the air, guess what? I now know exactley where she is! You idiots in DC are not from this planet!

    If he thinks a shotgun is better than an AR-15, then he should try to sell that idea to the military, and say all they need are shotguns instead of carbine M4's and M16's. Biden knows next to nothing about firearms.
  • #231

    If the first two shots miss you better be just as fast removing them and reloading as Joe makes it seem. I would rather send 15 rounds from an AR-15 than pellets from two 12 gauge shells.
  • #87
    !
    Maybe two shots is all you need. Maybe firing indiscriminately in the air will scare the attackers. Maybe you will never even have to defend yourself. But myself, my family, my fiancée are far too important to me than to base decisions on maybes. You buy a car with a seat belt, air bags, and a good crash rating because you fear for your life. Why can I not purchase a defense weapon for the same reason?
  • #45
    !
    When you fire in to the air those pellets won't hit anything they aren't suppose to hit? Sounds like someone needs a firearm safety class. I wonder if Obama or Biden ever took a gun safety class?

    I haven't figured out how to attach a light to my 870 yet.

    And now for a practical point. With the increases in price (and availability) of ammo a warning shot will not be fired.
  • #50
    !
    And I find it fascinating that a human life is worth less to you than the price of ammo. The more I read gun advocates articulate their world view, the less respect I have for them.
  • #63

    @Zazziness Hardly...my life is priceless and if I need to use self defense i'm going to use it. I don't play around when it comes to my or my family's life. It's bad advice from people like Biden that need correcting.

    Learn sarcasm.

    The school shooting at Northern Illinois was done with a shotgun. How can this ignorant jerk be so insensitive in these times to suggest shotguns are a cure to violence when the proof is otherwise. He only parrots the crap he's told to. Don't listen to him, he is so far out there he doesn't know reality.

    What an IDIOT!!!!!!!!! perhaps he should read Shannons Law . a little girl was killed when a stray bullet came down out of no where and sruck and killed her . What goes out or up must come down . fire up in your house if you have and upstairs? Every fourth thousand s get killed by bullets that are fired into the air and come down on or in someone . If you shoot shoot to kill. aim and dont miss. Badguys will always have better guns. Two shots and find your shells ?? The bad guy has Thirty rounds . YOUR DEAD!!!!!!!!!!

    If Biden actually believes what he's saying, he's completely clueless, to put it nicely. Logic would say he knows he's being a fool and lying to further gun control, since he and the other gun grabbers want to ban all firearms except single shot and double barrel shotguns and rifles, similar to Australia.

    Joe Biden is an absolute joke, It just goes to show that these anti 2nd ammendment gun grabbers have no clue of what they speak of...all democrats are socialists who what to steal the rights of Americans.

    Joe if a person has a double barrel shotgun(meaning you only have two shots one from each barrel)Although many criminals are pretty dumb but they can still count.With an extended magazine the fool doesnt know if you have 1or 30 shots .
