Did Biden Really Say That?
Anyone who has ever taken a defensive firearms course will pick up on Biden’s latest gaffe made during a speech in Philadelphia on June 2nd.
The former vice president was talking about police training when he stated, “Instead of standing there and teaching a cop when there’s an unarmed person comin’ at ’em with a knife or something to shoot ’em in the leg instead of the heart is a very different thing.”
Yeah, he really said that. We listened to the video (linked from Twitter below).
Maybe Biden needs a long chat with retired Salt Lake Police Lt. Dennis Tueller. Yeah, that Dennis Tueller — the fellow whose forward thinking resulted in what is generically called the “21-foot principle” relating to proximity of a suspect armed with a weapon other than a firearm, such as a knife or blunt instrument.
Biden apparently doesn’t think a knife-versus-gun situation can result in the good guy being fatally stabbed.
Back in 2013, Biden infamously stated for home defense against burglars or other criminals, the intended victim only needs a double-barrel shotgun. He claimed to have advised his wife to “walk out on the balcony…and fire two blasts outside the house.”
As US News noted at the time, capping off rounds into the air is illegal, especially in Biden’s home state of Delaware.https://twitter.com/therecount/status/1267500214815985665?s=20https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tueller_Drillhttps://www.usnews.com/news/article...gun-advice-could-land-jill-biden-in-jail
