Joe Biden's Ferrari Comment on MSNBC, Other Remarks Irk Gun Owners

By Alexandra Ward   |   Friday, 12 Apr 2013 11:36 AM

Vice President Joe Biden made a couple of controversial points during a roundtable discussion on MSNBC Thursday, comparing owning a gun to "driving a Ferrari" and saying that shotguns aren’t capable of shooting through walls.

Biden, appearing on "Morning Joe," said that too many people own guns simply because they like firing them.

"They like the way it feels," he said. "They just — you know, it’s like driving a Ferrari."




Biden also backed up the argument he made earlier this year when he said that a shotgun is the best form of self protection as compared to an AR-15 assault rifle.

"Guess what? A shotgun will keep you a lot safer — a double-barrel shotgun — than the assault weapon somebody’s hands who doesn’t know how to use it," Biden said in January in an online Google+ discussion.

On Thursday, Biden restated his opinion, but added some interested evidence to his position.

"You know, they make fun of my saying about use a shotgun if someone's invading your home — guess what, use a shotgun on someone invading your home and you don't kill your kids — use an AR-15, it goes through your wall and it can kill your kid in the bedroom," Biden said.

Twitter users immediately jumped on his comments.
