Open mouth, insert foot

It now appears the mass shooter at the Washington Naval Yard used a shotgun for most of the murders he committed. I recall back in the heat of the gun control debate that Vice President Joe Biden said, "I tell Jill (his wife) to get a double-barreled shotgun and if she hears a noise, just blast it through the door, that'll chase them off."

Well, perhaps his advice wasn't so good after all. Talk about ignorance about gun safety and plain stupid advice.

Can't blame that on George Bush or Rush Limbaugh.
