One last post on VP Joe Biden and shotguns, I promise. Well, last post until he says something else stupid on the subject.
Biden tells every talking head who will have him that a shotgun is all anyone, especially women, need for home defense. His expert home defense advise has included suggesting that going out on your back deck and firing off a couple of rounds into the air will deter home invaders and if you "want to keep someone away from your house, just fire the shotgun through the door."
I certainly hope that if you have found your way to this blog, you understand that Biden's advice is absolutely some of the worst advise on defending your home and family that any public figure can give. Even here in Texas, where we have some of the best laws protecting the home owner, firing a shotgun through your front door will get you arrested. And if you actually happened to hit someone with your intentionally negligent discharging of your firearm, you will be convicted and most likely sued.
This is a Joe Biden approved home defense shotgun.
Remington Model 870 Express. A very solid, dependable, and popular shotgun.
This is not a Joe Biden approved shotgun. As a matter of fact this shotgun would be banned for civilian use by the likes of Joe Biden and Diane Feinstein.
Model 870 Express Tactical With Blackhawk! SPEC OPS II. This must be extra evil. Look at all that black furniture. This shotgun would be banned because it has a pistol grip and an adjustable stock. This model also has a shorter barrel. The action is exactly the same as the regular Express. This shotgun just has different cosmetic features, features that do make it easier to deploy in the hallways and small rooms of a home.
Which of the above weapons would you rather have in hand when defending your family and home? I'll bet dimes for dollars it is the one that Biden would ban.
