How does this rank on the gaffe o'meter

Biden on how to protect your home? Buy a shotgun is the answer. The man in charge of the Oboes gun control goon squad said this yesterday. This is the man one heartbeat away from the football.

I don't get how this is a gaffe.

That "interviewer's" voice sounded like a comedy skit in itself.

Why is this so bad? A shotgun is a fine weapon for home defense.

I get that Biden is anti-gun, especially relative to the leanings of this board, but I just don't see this as a "gaffe."

I'm no liberal and have voted conservative the last few elections but I agree with his statement. I'm a hunter and against assault weapons. I'm for an assault weapons background check overhaul (even a ban wouldn't bother me). I think a shotgun is the best possible home defense weapon there is and that's why have have a few.

About a zero.

A shotgun is in fact, pretty damn good for home defense.

Advising people to buy a double barrel shotgun is not, in and of itself, a gaffe.

The gaffe comes in his explanation in why it is superior to an AR. He said he told his wife if she hears anything outside their home, that she should grab the shotgun, walk out onto the balcony, and blast into the night sky.

He guarantees us that this will take care of any potential problem and so therefor noone needs a rifle with a 30 round magazine.

I would put up a link but every one I've found forces you to sit through a long advertisement.

Drinking water is an unforgiveable gaffe .
That's all I know.
I can't comment on this until Ed and Chris tell me what to think.

Somewhere in between taking a sip of water and referring to a binder full of women's names.

And if the bushes move, shoot into them. He's an idiot.

Thanks. This makes more sense in terms of being a gaffe.

You may not be a liberal, but you are an idiot. What is the purpose of any weapon? The purpose is to make an assault on your target. So every weapon is an assault weapon, including a shotgun. Before you make silly statements exposing your failure to comprehend the subject matter try engaging your brain and think about the concepts you are trying to convey.

The only differences that exist among weapons are their levels of efficiency and effectiveness at assaulting their targets.

Well put...idiots think this is either about hunting and defense from burglary...

The sheep are so deep in the pasture they can't see the sniper towers at the perimeter

It's a gaffe in that it's inconsistent with the liberal agenda.

Correct. The second is not about hunting or home defense. How can Americans not understand this!?

Should have clarified his comments with:
"So let's be clear Joe. YOU are willing to bet MY life that two shotgun air blasts will deter any home invaders ? Is that what you are saying ?"

Saw that.

His solution to an armed intruder is to fire the only two rounds in a weapon, into the air.

Why not just have a tape recording of a gun going off and a plastic toy gun? That'll scare em!
