Biloxi, Mississippi — (AmmoLand.com) - Earlier this year, Vice President, Joe Biden reflected upon his experience (or lack thereof) in the world of firearms to offer some advice to gun owners. He claimed that a double barrel shotgun was “good enough” for personal defense. You could just walk outside and fire 2 shots into the air to scare the criminals away.
A Vancouver man decided to take that advice. Professor Paul gives his 2-cents on the incident. Shooting a firearm using the advice of Vice President Joe Biden or even that of President Barack Obama may not be the best idea. Or is it? Watch the video above to find out!
