Biden’s Post-Earthquake Survival Advice: Use a Shotgun

Even an idiot can come out with good advice. Pump shotgun is a better choice for home defense though. I would only use a double barrel if I was guarding a stagecoach. Maybe that was one of Joe's early jobs. Using a rifle inside a house for defense is a good way to kill your neighbors, especially is you're using 7.62. Save that for the longer range work. Also if you're packing a 9mm go with the hollow points. FMJs just don't have enough stopping power.

During an online “fireside” chat about gun control, Vice President Biden took the opportunity to offer some advice: For post-earthquake protection, a double barrel shotgun will keep you a lot safer than those “assault weapons.” Pretty bizarre coming from the man who led the gun violence task force—but then again, it’s just ‘Joe being Joe,’ right? 


"So you want to keep people away in an earthquake? Buy some shotgun shells."
