If Joe Biden were your neighbor, is there any advice you'd take from him?

No, that was equally stupid advice. Bullets don't just disintegrate.

Default 4 firearm safety rules

I'm not a huge fan of Biden, but for reasons other than his views on gun safety. The excellent 'assault weapons ban' signed by President Clinton was actually the brainchild of then-US Sen. Joe Biden.

Here he goes off track in saying "you want to keep someone away from your house, just fire the shotgun through the door."

You don't know what's on the other side of that door. It could be a home invader, or it could be the 15-yr-old neighbor boy who just wants a glimpse of your beautiful daughter. It could be your beautiful daughter coming home from college to surprise you. DON'T shoot through that door.

Biden gave much better advice when he told his wife Jill: "if there's ever a problem, just walk out on the balcony here, walk out and put that double-barrel shotgun and fire two blasts outside the house." In that case nobody would be hurt. The shotgun bullets would just go up into the air and basically disintegrate. Whether it's a masked intruder or the 15-yr-old neighbor boy, they would be scared away.
VP Biden did not know the first four rules of gun safety, and apparently gravity.

4 firearm safety rules
The four firearms safety rules are as follows: All guns are always loaded. Never let the muzzle cross anything you are not willing to destroy. Keep your finger off the trigger until you are on target and ready to fire. Be sure of your target and beyond.


I would advise anyone who wants to carry, or want to be educated in gun safety, to take the carry course from your respective state. You don't actually have to carry a weapon, but at least you would know what you are talking about.

Ohhhh Travis. Many of us here have actually tried to help you learn the facts about firearms. Yet you continue to just come up with these wild postulations (many in total disregard for the laws of physics) which while entertaining are also quite dangerous.

Travis will you please find a gunsmith and thoroughly educate yourself. You post the blatantly idiotic subjects about firearms that are fantastically and completely wrong.

Biden is a damned fool and proves it with this ďadviceĒ.
OK, I was under the impression that a shotgun shell would disintegrate in the upper atmosphere if fired straight up. If not then I stand corrected.

I have to wonder if Biden had something else in mind. It's hard to believe that someone of his stature would give blatantly incorrect advice. I see that we are all on the same page when it comes to shooting a shotgun through the door. That is in fact questionable advice.

The "shell" is what contains the projectile(s). The shell empties the projectiles and then ejected (safely) nearby from the gun.
