Vice President Joe Biden remarked that although gun owners continue to mock him for promoting shotguns as a weapon to defend your home, a shotgun is much safer than an AR-15.

“You know, they make fun of my saying about use a shotgun if someone’s invading your home - guess what, use a shotgun  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.”
