Just when you thought Joe Biden couldn't get any dumber...

This is arguably not even the stupidest statement the VP made in an interview with Field & Stream, but since it builds on yesterday's post's idiocy, I will highlight it here:
I said, “Well, you know, my shotgun will do better for you than your AR-15, because you want to keep someone away from your house, just fire the shotgun through the door.” Most people can handle a shotgun a hell of a lot better than they can a semiautomatic weapon in terms of both their aim and in terms of their ability to deter people coming. We can argue whether that’s true or not, but it is no argument that, for example, a shotgun could do the same job of protecting you. Now, granted, you can come back and say, “Well, a machine gun could do a better job of protecting me.” No one’s arguing we should make machine guns legal.
Right. Tell that to Oscar Pistorius.
