Joe Biden: Shotgun Beats Assault Rifle in Case of Earthquake!

by at .

Vice President Joe Biden really needs a reality show, as a recent White House petition called for. He gave Americans a glimpse of why Friday in a Google+ Hangout.

The always-outspoken Veep (and possible 2016 election candidate) went off on a tangent on shotguns, assault rifles, and protecting yourself during an earthquake.

Take a look:

Senate Democrats introduced their 2013 assault weapons ban earlier in the week, a controversial measure that faces an uncertain future in Congress.

Among many fair questions about such a bill: How can you ban assault weapons when some people own them as a last line of defense, one G+ user asked.

Joe says that's no problem ... since shotguns work better anyway.

"A shotgun would keep you a lot safer - a double barrel shotgun - than the assault weapon in somebody's hand who doesn't know how to use it," he says.

While looking at the camera and pretending to clutch a shotgun.

"You know. It's harder to use an assault weapon to hit something than a shotgun. So, if you want to keep people away in an earthquake, buy some shotgun shells."

The more you know.
