The following is the Associated Press report on the standoff between police and the man who they say opened fire at a barber shop and a car wash on Wednesday in upstate New York, killing four. But as the gun debate rages, it’s interesting to note that the gun used by the killer was not an automatic weapon, a so-called “assault weapon,” or even a handgun. Instead, it was a shotgun — the type of gun Vice President has been touting as a better protection option although it’s unclear what exact shotgun was used.
Other than the Blaze zero media mentions of this interesting fact.
Shotguns are awesome powerful in close quarters combat when you don’t care who dies around you. The damage per shot is staggering compared to that of “assault” rifles. … No matter to some. They actually want to ban everything. It’s just one gun at a time for these folks.
Ok, yes some of these ladies have poor form and would be fine with some proper training.
But the truth is that an AR is far (FAR) easier to hold on target and fire than any shotgun on the market.

“I was there, I voted against them,” Biden continued. “I said, no, we can’t afford that.”
Then Sen. Biden voted for the Afghanistan resolution on Sept. 14, 2001 which authorized “the use of United States Armed Forces against those responsible for the recent attacks launched against the United States.”
And on Oct. 11, 2002, Biden voted for a resolution authorizing unilateral military action in Iraq, according to the Washington Post.
