"The 22-year old Snowden fired through a door after seeing two masked men by a window of his residence," dah.

Now, think about what you just wrote. He alleged that he saw two masked men by a window, so he shot through a door. Comeon, dah, even you are not that dense!

The problem with this advice, as Trevor Snowden discovered, it that using a shotgun in that manner is illegal.

this goes right along with Biden's suggestion that homeowners randomly fire shotguns into the air to scare off intruders--after all, that is what he tells his wife to do if she hears someone outside when he's not home. Yet firing guns into the air within city limits is illegal as well.

During the past few days and weeks, VP Joe Biden has been passing out advice on how to use a shotgun--the problem is, much of what he has advised is against the law.

Virginia Beach resident Trevor Snowden found this out the hard way when he fired "a shotgun through the door" and faced charges for "reckless handling of a firearm."

The 22-year old Snowden fired through a door after seeing two masked men by a window of his residence.

It was during an interview with Field & Stream that Biden said one of the pluses of using a shotgun for home defense over an AR-15 is that you can "just fire the shotgun through the door" to keep people away from your house.

Gun nut jobs! Google: 2 year old shot with a gun. Are you ready to admit that according to your policies and political believes that the deaths of innocent children is 'acceptable collateral damage' to live in a NRA endorsed society? I'm not!

The Constitution was written by a moral people for a moral the morals of the country are declining, the numbers of people that think the Constitution is an out dated un important document has been increasing. It is the right and responsibility of moral people to speak up, by force of arms if needed at some point to keep the rights of all Americans in tact.This includes citizens who are in law enforcement and in the military.With no Constitution and no right to bear arms for all free men, there is no USA. There will only be another country that may claim to be the USA.

Wienerdawg is like George Soros, the backstabbing Hungarian J*w who collaborated with the Nazis to snitch on his J*wish neighbors in WWII.

He got a portion of each J*wish property the Nazis took as a reward.

Now be a good little Nazi biache puppy, wienerdoggy, roll over and play DEAD.

Uncommon, have you looked under your bed lately? That's where government agents are most prone to be hiding. Make sure that you sweep your house for hidden mikes and cameras. Don't trust anyone, especially if they don't vote "Right". Did you know that the government has special satellites that follow you wherever you go and share the info with the Chinese and radical left wing groups? Global warming is an international conspiracy to undermine the American Way! Have you heard that squads of gestapo-type agents are just waiting to batter down your door and take your guns and Soldier of Fortune magazines! Be sure to wrap your head in aluminum foil to keep them from reading your mind.

A Semi-automatic shotgun is considered by most knowledgeable gun experts the most effective home defense weapon you can own.

But of course Colorado will try to ban them and soon the rest of the anti-gunners will get on the bandwagon.

Is a semi auto shotgun a military assault weapon?

{bleep} NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOooooooooooooooo!

Poor Wienerdawgs are CLUELESS:

"DENVER (CBS4) – A popular hunting shotgun could be banned under one of the bills moving through the state Capitol.

A pump or semi-automatic shotgun is the gun most hunters in Colorado use. It’s a gun state Sen. Greg Brophy, R-Wray, says could be banned under a bill that’s already passed the House and Gov. John Hickenlooper says he’ll sign.

“They’re coming after the standard shotgun,” Brophy told CBS4 Political Specialist Shaun Boyd. Brophy says if Democrats succeed in passing a bill limiting large capacity magazines in Colorado, they’ll outlaw the most popular selling firearm for hunting. “Hundreds of thousands of pheasant hunters are probably going to be carrying around a gun they won’t be able to replace after July 1 this year,” he said.

"Guard with jealous attention the public liberty. Suspect everyone who approaches that jewel. Unfortunately, nothing will preserve it but downright force. Whenever you give up that force, you are ruined." — Patrick Henry, Virginia's Ratification convention, 1788 "The great object is that every man be armed." -- Patrick Henry, during the Constitutional convention, as quoted in Elliot's Debates, 1836

"Any people anywhere, being inclined and having the power, have the right to rise up and shake off the existing government and form a new one that suits them better. This is a most valuable, a most sacred right – a right which we hope and believe is to liberate the world." -- Abraham Lincoln, 1848 ... "And how does an unarmed people do that?"

"The simple truth -- born of experience -- is that tyranny thrives best where government need not fear the wrath of an armed people. Our own sorry history bears this out: Disarmament was the tool of choice for subjugating both slaves and free blacks in the South. In Florida, patrols searched blacks' homes for weapons, confiscated those found and punished their owners without judicial process. In the North, by contrast, blacks exercised their right to bear arms to defend against racial mob violence. As Chief Justice Taney well appreciated, the institution of slavery required a class of people who lacked the means to resist. See Dred Scott v. Sandford, (1857) (finding black citizenship unthinkable because it would give blacks the right to "keep and carry arms wherever they went"). A revolt by Nat Turner and a few dozen other armed blacks could be put down without much difficulty; one by four million armed blacks would have meant big trouble."All too many of the other

“Firearms stand next in importance to the Constitution itself. They are the people's liberty teeth keystone... the rifle and the pistol are equally indispensable... more than 99% of them by their silence indicate that they are in safe and sane hands. The very atmosphere of firearms everywhere restrains evil interference. When firearms go, all goes, we need them every hour.” -- George Washington, Address to 1st session of Congress “The strongest reason for the people to retain the right to keep and bear arms is, as a last resort, to protect themselves against tyranny in government.” -- Thomas Jefferson, (The Papers of Thomas Jefferson, p. 334, 1950)

As long as the standing armies(law enforcement) have "high capacity" magazines, body armor, AR-15s, Glocks, and heavily armored vehicles, the PEOPLE shall ALSO!!

The founding fathers put ZERO restrictions on the second amendment for a very good reason!

It is a natural right that CAN not and SHALL not under ANY circumstances be in ANY way infringed!!

"The right of self-defense is the first law of nature; in most governments it has been the study of rulers to confine this right within the narrowest limits possible. Wherever standing armies are kept up, and when the right of the people to keep and bear arms is, under any color or pretext whatsoever, prohibited, liberty, if not already annihilated, is on the brink of destruction." -- Henry St. George Tucker, in Blackstone's 1768 Commentaries on the Laws of England

Great! Those are all aimed at controlling a specific type of firearm which is designed to kill and wound large numbers of people in a very short time. They are not designed simply for home defense or sport hunting.

Wheeldoggydo you have no clue. You drink too much kool-aid and are in denial.

From whitehouse dot gov web site:

Require background checks for all gun sales Strengthen the background check system for gun sales Pass a new, stronger ban on assault weapons Limit ammunition magazines to 10 rounds Finish the job of getting armor-piercing bullets off the streets Give law enforcement additional tools to prevent and prosecute gun crime End the freeze on gun violence research Make our schools safer with new resource officers and counselors, better emergency response plans, and more nurturing school climates Ensure quality coverage of mental health treatment, particularly for young people.

At last! Some common sense perspectives from both sides of the aisle. As I posted elsewhere, no one it going to take your guns. There won't be federal gestapo agents breaking down your door to take away your guns. The most likely outcome will be greater background checks and the banning of high capacity clips from semiautomatic weapons. It's time to tone down the paranoia and conspiracy theories.
