Because AR-15s are harder to aim and harder to use:
You heard it guys… straight from the vice president’s pie hole:
If you want to protect yourself get a double barreled shotgun. Have the shells, a 12 gauge shotgun, and I promise you… I told my wife; we live in an area that’s wooded and it’s somewhat secluded. I said Jill, if there’s ever a problem just walk out on the balcony put that double barreled shotgun and fire two blasts outside the house. I promise you whoever is coming in is not going to… you don’t need an AR-15. It’s harder to aim, it’s harder to use and in fact you don’t need 30 rounds to protect yourself. Buy a shotgun. Buy a shotgun.
A round of applause for the Vice President everyone…. *facepalm* So are murder charges now going to be dropped in the future when someone does something this retarded? If we can’t take advice from the Vice President who can we trust?
This isn’t the first time he’s mentioned the merit of double barrel shotguns over AR-15s for self-defense.
