On Joe Biden's Claim that a Two Gauge Shotgun Is Easier to Operate and Safer for a Women to Use than an AR 15
He is wrong on this one. a) The average shotgun would all but knock a small woman over and probably damage her shoulder. b) The fact that it only has two rounds before you have to reload (a process that takes between five and ten seconds) would clearly put the women at a disadvantage (especially so if there are multiple assailants). And c) there is a much greater chance of collateral damage with a shotgun due to the wide dispersing of pellets.......Look, I'm not trumpeting anything here. I'm not a gun-rights advocate OR a gun-control advocate (please, call me an empiricist, if anything). I would just like for there to be a modicum of intellectual honesty and common sense to be used in the debate, that's all.
