Letter to the Editor
Saturday, March 23, 2013, 9:00 p.m.

The inmates are running the asylum: I recently saw Joe Biden's comment that “(if) you want to keep someone away from your house, just fire the shotgun through the door.” He further told an interviewer that he had advised his wife, Jill, that “if there's ever a problem, just walk out on the balcony here, walk out and put that double-barrel shotgun and fire two blasts outside the house.”

I don't care if this guy is the vice president! Some village in Pennsylvania or Delaware is missing its idiot. Now we have people actually doing what he suggests.

Having been a firearms instructor since the '60s, I can assure you that had any pro-gun person made those statements, the mainstream media would be all over it. What upsets me most is that this is the guy the “Anointed One” has directed to determine who, if anyone, should own a gun and what kind.

I suggest that not only is he incompetent for any assignment, let alone one involving a firearm, he should not be allowed to have anyone within 50 feet of him in possession of a gun unless that person is there to take him into custody.

Where in the world are the mainstream media?
