Music Video: Joe Biden Sings “Buy a Shotgun”
Russ Chastain 09.02.15
I’m no fan of the current occupants of the White House, but yeah, this is funny.
By now I guess everyone has heard of Joe Biden’s foolhardy advice to buy a double-barrel shotgun, and whenever you feel threatened or unsafe, stroll on outside and “fire two blasts outside the house.”
It went something like this:
‘Kate, if you want to protect yourself get a double-barrel shotgun,’ he said.
‘Have the shells of a 12 gauge shot gun. And I promise you, as I told my wife… we live in an area that is wooded and somewhat secluded…
‘I said “Jill, if there’s ever a problem, just walk out on the balcony here – walk out, put that double barrel shot gun and fire two blasts outside the house – I promise you whoever is coming in…”
‘You don’t need an AR-15, it’s harder to aim, it’s harder to use… you don’t need 30 rounds to protect yourself. Buy a shotgun! Buy a shotgun!’
It’s bad policy, it’s bad advice, and it’s not very smart. But someone clever put it to music, added a few lyrics, and sang along, and it’s really pretty wonderful.
“Jill, buy a shotgun baby!”
