A 22-year-old Virginia man has been charged with firing a shotgun through the door of his house on the same day that Vice President Joe Biden said that if “you want to keep someone away from your house, just fire the shotgun through the door.”
Biden made the comment on Monday to a reporter from Field & Stream magazine.
The man, who was not identified in a report by The Washington Times, was in the bedroom of his Virginia Beach home when two armed masked men leaned through the window and warned him to close the bedroom door.
The 22-year-old did, but not before stepping into the hallway, The Times reports. He then grabbed his shotgun and fired several shots through his closed bedroom door, toward the window.
The man was arrested on charges of recklessly handling a firearm, The Times reports. The suspects have not been caught — and no injuries were reported.
