During the recent gun grab by Democrats, Vice President Joe Biden provided specific advice what type of gun Americans should own and how they should use it. For one man in Vancouver, Washington, taking that advice got him arrested when he confronted people messing with his cars.
During an online Q & A in February, Biden addressed one concerned American’s question about how best to protect themselves. He recommended doing just as he had told his wife, Jill Biden:
“I said, ‘Jill, if there’s ever a problem, just walk out on the balcony here, walk out and put that double-barrel shotgun and fire two blasts outside the house,” the vice president said.
Holding his hands as if pointing a shotgun at the camera, Biden continued, “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. Buy a shotgun! Buy a shotgun!”
With a raucous party occurring in his neighborhood, Jeffrey Barton, 52, did as the vice president suggested. Partygoers appeared to be messing with the cars on his property so Barton fired his shotgun into the air to ward them off.
Undoubtedly that did the trick for getting rid of the intruders. It also landed Barton in court facing charged of illegal aiming or discharging a firearm. News video of the story is below.
This is not the first time an otherwise law abiding gun owner got in trouble for doing as Biden suggested. At least three other times in recent months others have found themselves in legal hot water.
Perhaps our dimwitted vice president should not be giving home defense advice (let alone taking away our Second Amendment rights).
