Washington - Vice President Joe Biden says Americans don´t need semi-automatic weapons to protect their homes because a couple of blasts from a shotgun will scare off intruders. The vice president encouraged those worried about defending themselves to buy a shotgun. He was speaking Tuesday in an online video as part of a Facebook Town Hall hosted by Parents Magazine on the administration´s strategy for reducing gun violence. Biden says he keeps two shotguns and shells locked up in a metal safe in his home. He said he's told his wife, Jill, that if she needs to protect herself,

Aren´t we all amazed about how much the Democrats claim to know about which firearms are best to use to defend one´s family?

And how about the Dem who argued that a whistle should be fine?

I thought we were supposed to use scissors...

Shut up, Joe. The 2nd Amedment is not about keeping burglars away...and it is not about hunting or skeet either! It is to protect us from tyrants like you.

I´ve known for many years that the best way to clear a house of unwanted late-night visitors is the sound of a pump shotgun (which some dems want to outlaw as an assualt weapon) being primed. No news here Joey. Move along quietly now.

Americans need guns to defend themselves against gov´t tyranny, politicians and criminals.

And we can use the guns for collections, target shooting and hunting too.

The 2nd amendment does not regulate the types of guns a person can own. The courts and federal government have taken it upon themselves the right to define the types of guns Americans can own.

If I could own a machine gun, without the tax and giving away my rights, for home defense I´d have one.

"The problem is, shotguns are difficult to conceal in a shoulder holster or a belt holster."

- Also, unlike a pistol or an AR carbine, they are difficult to use in a confined space (such as the closets and bathrooms the political elites would have use compelled to retreat to before using a firearm in the face of attack). Of course, there is a shotgun that is ideal for close-quarters, the sawed-off shotgun, but I doubt Clueless joe is calling for folks to buy those. . .

This would be our ´national treasure´ of a developmentally crippled individual in a position of ´power´.

Who, not surprisingly - is stupid enough not to know that a pump shotgun with double-ought buckshot could have wiped out exponentially more kids at Newton than those pesky large capacity clips.

Do they not give even basic intelligence tests to people running for public office?

KelTec has a new line of shotguns, with a short barrel. The 15 round model has dual tube magazines and a laser site, perfect for use from the closet. With the short barrel it´s easy to pump. You can scare off a lot of intruders with one.

I´d like someone in the police department to comment on the wisdom of sticking a shotgun outside the window and shooting in the air. Is it safe for the neighbors? Will it provide invaders with your position and draw return fire? What are your chances of being prosecuted for endangering a would be criminal?

If Jill needs to protect herself, she must go to the safe, remember the combination, try it until the safe will open, get the shotgun out, load the shotgun, go the balconey (we are not told which floor the safe is on), and fire two rounds (we are not told the gauge, or if Jill might need shoulder pads). That will protect Jill from intruders, assuming they are accomodating and not hurrying her.

Actually, for home defense, a shotgun is also my weapon of choice.

I have other people in my home besides me and one thing I truly worry about is not knowing where everyone in the house is, in case an assailant breaks in.

A shotgun will do the most damage when the intruder is between me and the unknown WITHOUT the spray being able to travel through walls or very far through the air. It´s a deadly weapon against an intruder at close range and much safer for my family members in other places in the house.

I´ll consider deferring to Biden on issues of firearms and home protection, as soon as he shows some indication that he has a higher IQ than a dinner roll.

So if Crazy Joe says all we need for home protection is a shotgun, odds are good that he´ll be saying something else stupid tomorrow.

Go to Youtube, look up Taurus Judge and get a 30-some minute video of what it can do. (It´s the pistol that shoots 410 shotgun shells mentioned above.) At close range, well, I wouldn´t want to be on the receiving side of it!

A shotgun is great for home defense, but don´t fall for the Hollywood crap that you don´t need to aim one. At close distances, the shot doesn´t have time to spread out very much. From across a room, the shot spread is only going to be a few inches across.

Fine advice from the big mouthed bully. Shoot both barrels of a double shotgun randomly because you ´think´ you heard something and are afraid. Now you are outside your house with an empty weapon. About the level of expertise I would expect from this elderly punk. At least one violation I can think of for most neighborhoods. Definitely one where they live.

Could be worse. You could be assigned bodyguard duty for his wife.

Like so many other things, if the Taurus "Judge" .410-.45 is illegal in California then you know it must be good.

BTW- They call it the "Judge" because it is the weapon of choice to be carried beneath the "Robes" of many judges.

Stupid advice from Biden.

If you´ve fired both barrels, your target better be DEAD because you´re out of shells and he´s going to KILL you.

You rack the pump for a warning. Don´t pull the trigger if you don´t have a target.

SF Supe Breed: fix public housing for homeless
SFGate, by Marisa Lagos    Original Article

Supervisor London Breed plans to announce legislation Tuesday afternoon that would earmark $2.6 million to rehabilitate 172 public housing units that are currently too run down for people to live in - housing she wants to be used for homeless families. Breed is asking the city to spend the money immediately and outside the normal budget process - and possibly to circumvent federal housing law, which requires hopeful public housing residents to be called off a wait list that has been full, and closed, for years.

Since then, I have continued to study the facts and have drawn some conclusions. Here they are. First, it must be admitted that legally, Bundy doesn’t have a leg to stand on. The Bureau of Land Management has been charging him grazing fees since the early 1990s, which he has refused to pay. Further, BLM has issued orders limiting the area on which Bundy’s cows can

Casual marijuana use may come with some not-so-casual side effects. For the first time ever, researchers at Northwestern University have analyzed the relationship between casual use of marijuana and brain changes – and found that young adults who used cannabis just once or twice a week showed significant abnormalities in two important brain structures. The study’s findings, to be published Wednesday in the Journal of Neuroscience, are similar to those of past research linking chronic, long-term marijuana use with mental illness and changes in brain development. Dr. Hans Breiter, co-senior study author, said he was inspired to look at the effects of casual

Whatever the burning political question of the day, millions of Americans have relished the opportunity to tune into Rush’s program, knowing that he would quickly take that hot potato, throw a few gallons of verbal kerosene into the mix and elevate the matter into a five alarm fire with a just a few well-chosen words spoken in the style only Rush Limbaugh could
