As a Lawyer, Please Don’t Listen to Joe Biden’s Gun Advice

Please, for the love of all things precious to you and your family, do not listen to Joe Biden when it comes to using firearms to defend yourself.

His advice is dangerous both physically and legally. It’s going to get police killed and lull Americans into a false sense of security.

Biden, the presumptive Democratic presidential nominee, has been wrong on guns every time he mentions them. His latest is telling police that when they’re confronted with criminals demonstrating hostile intent with a weapon, they should just “shoot them in the leg.”

The advice would be humorous, if it weren’t so fraught with danger. To get full understanding, it’s important to see the entire quote of what he told African American community leaders at Bethel AME Church in Wilmington, Delaware.

“The idea that instead of standing there and teaching a cop when there’s an unarmed person coming at ‘em with a knife or something, shoot ‘em in the leg instead of in the heart, is a very different thing,” Biden said.

This is lunacy.
