Joe Biden is absolutely sure that he speaks for you when he says “No law abiding citizen in the United States is afraid that their Constitutional rights will be infringed in any way! None… Zero!”. Either his statement is completely ignorant or I must not be a law abiding citizen. I know a lot of people who are afraid of our Constitutional rights being infringed.
[Furthermore how does this brilliant man have the the ability to know the thoughts of all law abiding Americans? We don’t know. Perhaps it’s ESP? Perhaps they really are bugging all of our phones and listening to all of our conversations? No, he probably couldn’t have gotten that information from bugging all law abiding citizens phones, because way too many Americans are having conversations about how they fear the government is infringing on their rights… Furthermore, if you can’t get all law abiding citizens in America to agree on simple facts, like the grass being green or the sky being blue, it is CERTAIN that you can’t get 100% to agree on such a controversial and emotional topic. Once again, Biden proves beyond a shadow of a doubt that he has a hollow, whistling sound between his ears.]
The fact that that he also advised women living in some areas to commit crime, doesn’t seem to concern him. In many areas, it is illegal to fire warning shots.
“I am a member of the Delaware Bar, as is Vice President Biden,” noted Shellenberger. “There are a number of statutory restrictions that could be violated by shooting a shotgun ‘off the porch.'”
In addition to felony charges, Shellenberger cited the “Discharge of a firearm within 15 yards of a road (7 Del.C. § 719), a misdemeanor,” and “Violation of the residential dwelling safety zone as set forth in 7 Del.C. § 723, also a misdemeanor.”
He probably didn’t intend to recommend that women commit crime. It’s was probably just an honest mistake due to his own ignorance.
In a recent case remarkably similar to Biden’s scenario for his wife, a Tacoma, Washington man was charged with assault after he shot his gun into the air to try to frighten off two boys he says he thought were prowlers.
In another recent episode, a man in Mesquite, Texas was handcuffed, escorted to jail and charged with “discharging his weapon in a metropolitan area” after firing a warning shot into the ground on his own property to ward off men who had been trying to break into his home.
And in February, a New Hampshire man was charged with a felony after he fired a warning shot into the ground as a burglar attempted to break into a neighbor’s home. The charges were later dropped.
Shotguns can have a lot of recoil, depending on the type. This can make it difficult to control them for some people – especially those who are not used to firing them. See the following clip for the difference between shooting a shotgun and an AR-15:
Well the fact of the matter is that many people are concerned about their rights and liberties being infringed. Especially in view of the Department of Justice Memo stating that gun confiscation coupled with restriction on manufacture, sale and distribution is a better option than any other option available for reducing violent gun crime.
