Joe Biden: ‘Buy a Shotgun’

Out gun shopping and not sure which firearm will best suit your needs? Just ask Uncle Joe. Vice President Biden, who’s been guiding the administration’s gun control legislation, says he told his wife, Jill, that she should get a double-barreled shotgun as protection for herself and their home. Assualt weapons, he said, are not effective. “You don’t need an AR-15—it’s harder to aim, it’s harder to use, and in fact you don’t need 30 rounds to protect yourself,” he said in a Facebook town hall with Parents Magazine on Tuesday. Of the White House’s gun-control agenda, he admitted it won’t be a cure-all, but over time, will be impactful.
