And Joe was an idiot to say it.

What goes up, must come down, and his advice could have killed someone.

This story is about 2 people who don't know the law.  One is a misinformed idiot from Jerkwater USA who has no clue that firing a shotgun into the air in a town could be dangerous, and the other is not the vice president.

Did you have a Natty Light sitting on the hood of your Trans Am while you did it? Was AC/DC playing on the Trans Am's radio? Were you shirtless? If not, you were not doing it the Biden way.

Also, that is the greatest picture of Uncle Joe in that article.

FLASE FLAG. This guy is obviously a conservative plant,
out to discredit the administration's views on gun control.

Study it out.

No need to study anything.  This is from the Washignton Times.  No need to go any further.

Falling shot isn't going to kill anyone.

Meh.  Many kids were pulled out of my school for the first day of dove season and I recall their stories of having shot rain down upon them as they retrieved birds.

Anyway, the dude should have known that there are restrictions on shooting a firearm within town limits.  That is amazingly ignorant.

Wellllllllll, to be *COMPLETELY* technically honest, if you are shooting birdshot up into the air, it's not going to kill someone when it comes back down.  It might sting a bit if you look up and get some in your eye, but that's about it.

Hell, I'd let you shoot a shotgun straight up, and I'd stand underneath it, so long as it's birdshot.  Completely safe, as the terminal velocity on something like #7 shot is small.  I'd even do it with a bare head.

Slugs and buckshot are a different matter entirely, however.

Biden was just using reverse psychology on Republitards, since they tend to do the opposite of whatever a Democrat does.

I'm pretty sure the VP made this recommendation when it came to home invasion, not because you might have maybe thought you saw two people who weren't there breaking into your car.
 
2013-07-18 12:41:42 PM  
It's clearly Joe Biden's fault. Why won't he take personal responsibility for this other person's actions?

Ar eyou talking about the time he advised to shoot blindly through the door, or the time to go to the balcony and fire a few rounds in the air?

Farking context how does it work? Referring to self-defense is different than randomly firing a weapon in the air. But the Moonie Times knows their target audience are morons so there's that.

Well, to be fair, unless you're firing a slug from that shotgun, you're not going to do much damage. Maybe that big ass buckshot, but nothing else has enough mass... Bullets are a totally different story, though. The law doesn't make such distinctions though...

That being said, he was stupid to say it, and even stupider to follow up with the "just shoot through the door" crap, but this guy is even stupider to claim this defense, if for no other reason than the fact that everybody and their dog jumped on that statement from day 1...
 
2013-07-18 12:57:32 PM  
<i>However, sheriff's deputies noted to KOIN Wednesday that current law does not afford people the right to just fire off their gun. There must be a self-defense component, along with a life-threatening situation. None of which appeared to be the case here, they said.</i>

Jeez, I'm pretty sure Biden said to just randomly fire your shotgun into the air...

I'm projecting.  I really only have slugs and buckshot in the house, but I also live in the city, so I better have a damn good reason to discharge a firearm.  I might have some birdshot, I'd have to look.

Codenamechaz: I'm pretty sure the VP made this recommendation when it came to home invasion, not because you might have maybe thought you saw two people who weren't there breaking into your car.


It's bad advice in that context too. Firing into the air is a bad idea. Emptying the gun you want to use in self defense in a dangerous situation is a bad idea. Firing warning shots usually gets you in more trouble than shooting at the person threatening you. It's just bad advice all around.

FTFA:
A sergeant with the Wilmington, Del., police department explained to U.S. News that city residents are not allowed to fire guns on their property.

The sergeant, who preferred not to be identified, said that Wilmington residents are also not allowed to shoot trespassers. "On your property you can't just shoot someone," he said. "You have to really feel that your life is being threatened."

He's not so much a dumbass as he just doesn't have much of a filter.  When he's speaking on legislation, policy, or things that he's spent his professional life involved in he's remarkably eloquent and on point.  When he's just riffing about his various opinions on things his foot finds its way into his mouth fairly often.

I assure you, without a doubt in my mind, that falling shotgun-shot pellets are not going to even break your skin.

If he was using a slug, yea, he could kill someone, but I assume it was just bird, or even buck shot. I know this from first hand knowledge.

/was hunting across a huge field from another group, and every so often they'd shoot at a bird and some of their pellets would fall on us, and I"m sure it was the same otherwise.

Well, I wouldn't say being a centrist is "dumb" per se, though I agree most people would find more to agree with further left if there wasn't such a concerted effort to demonize socialist politics. But, hey, at least they're not goosestepping rightists, right?
