Former President Bill Clinton speaking at Georgetown University earlier this week just had to weigh-in on the gun control issue...and agreed with Vice President Joe Biden!

His actual words were,

If you live in a city and you think you need protection of your home, you’re way better off with a shotgun than an assault weapon,” he said. “Trust me. It’s not even close.”

Looking at the words 'trust me' I have to wonder if he used the same line when discussing cigars with Monica Lewinsky?  Why should anyone trust this man on any count?  At least on one occasion he had unprotected oral sex with a starry eyed White House intern and now jets around the world advocating safe-sex to prevent HIV-AIDS.  Why would you trust a hypocrite of this caliber?

Back to the issue at hand.  Shotgun or assault rifle for protection in the city?  Some people might advocate a shotgun as our "gunslinger, never been in the military" Vice-President Joe Biden did.  But as has been pointed out by many others when you shoot both shells from your double-barrel shotgun what do you think the armed criminal is doing while you re-load?  Right, advancing through the freshly blown hole in your front door.

I'm not advocating either a shotgun, double barrel shotgun, assault rifle, revolver or semi-automatic handgun but I think I'll get my information from someone who has actually used a weapon for protection and does not depend on a coterie of security people armed to the teeth with every imaginable weapon known to modern man.

I think I will trust the people who actually know what they're talking about to guide my home protection efforts.
