The saddest truth in politics is that people get the leaders they deserve

How many Girl Scouts have to die before Biden is thrown out of office?

Girls Scouts selling cookies door-to-door, or as Joe Biden considers them, “targets.”

I’m glad the Girl Scouts are almost done with cookie sales for the year. Thanks to Joe Biden, selling Thin Mints door-to-door could get you killed.

A Virginia man who followed Vice President Joe Biden’s advice to fire through doors is now facing criminal charges.

Vice President Joe Biden told Field & Stream magazine in an interview published Monday, “[if] you want to keep someone away from your house, just fire the shotgun through the door.”

Coincidentally, a 22-year-old man in Virginia Beach, Va., was charged Monday with reckless handling of a firearm after doing just that a couple days earlier.

Local TV station WAVY 10 reports that the man observed two masked men leaning into his bedroom window. The men allegedly had weapons and told him to close his bedroom door. He stepped outside of his bedroom and did as instructed, then fired his shotgun through the closed door and then several more times at the window.

Had Trevor Lamont Snowden actually hit anyone, his charges could have been upgraded to felonies.

This is the second time in days that the Vice President has advised citizens to commit crimes—potentially felony crimes—by dangerously and recklessly discharging firearms.

In the first instance, he advised firing “two blasts” into the air, despite the fact that shots fired into the air must come back to earth, and when they do they have the power to kill. Four-year-old Marquel Peters was killed by someone firing a bullet into the air, as was 15-year-old Rachel Yoder. Yoder’s killer was charged with reckless homicide.

In the second instance, Biden advised firing shots through doors. Firing through doors, without knowing who or what is on the other side, is grounds for homicide charges in every state in the union and in nearly every country overseas.  Olympian Oscar Pistorius has been charged with murder in South Africa, after firing shots through an interior door that killed his girlfriend. He likely would have faced murder charges even if the person on the other side of the door had been an intruder.

How much deadly lethal advice does a public official have to give before he is regarded as a public menace and must be removed from office?

Stunningly, the mainstream media is keeping mum about the potential lethality of Biden’s statements, both of which advise the discharging of firearms without the presence of a lethal threat. In both instances, and particularly the second, Biden’s advise could result in injury or death.

There is no excuse for someone in public office to give such deadly advice.

Where is the media?

Where is basic decency?

  1. This is what happens when a presidential candidate picks a running mate just a little bit less intelligent than himself so as to look brilliant on the campaign trail.

    Perhaps Clueless Joe is right…we eliminate all handguns in favor of motion detection twin .50 cal machine guns….or maybe mining the walkway to your front door, yes, I think that should do it. Maybe we destroy all weapons of any kind and have the Girl Scouts run a gauntlet of caged pit bulls. If they make it to the front door, they must be a no-threat. Yes OK that is my favorite way…OK everyone throw out all your guns, Clueless Joe has solved all our security problems with his Super-Genius Mensa Extraordinairre giganto lightning brain.

    Next week, Clueless Joe tackles world peace.

      I like it…simple and effective. Of course, would not help the lady from Atlanta who said she would rather be murdered than arm herself, but I like simply funtional devices like that.
