Irresponsible: Joe Biden Wants Cops Under Attack to Shoot People in the Leg (Video)

Democrat nominee Joe Biden believes police officers need to be trained to shoot assailants in the leg in order to reduce fatalities.

The former vice president made the comments during a meeting with African American community leaders at the 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 him with a knife or something, to shoot him in the leg instead of in the heart,” Biden said.

“There’s a lot of different things that can change,” he continued.

What any of that has to do with the George Floyd case is anybody’s guess, as the police officer did not use a weapon.


There is certainly a lot to pick apart in such a ridiculous statement.

  • Biden seems unaware that somebody wielding a knife is NOT unarmed.
  • Shooting is generally a last resort when it comes to subduing a criminal with bad intentions.
  • Does he really believe race-baiters would be okay with video of an officer shooting a black man in the leg?

Dana Loesch, a former spokesperson for the National Rifle Association, slammed Biden for his comments.

“Biden clearly has zero experience with firearms, firearm law, or self-defense — you don’t shoot unless lethal force is absolutely justified,” she said. “His ‘shoot to wound’ rhetoric is irresponsible.”

Joe’s expertise has always been called into question when it comes to advice on firearms.

This is, after all, the same guy who told his wife to just wantonly fire off shotguns into the air if she ever thought there was a problem at the house.

And social media viewers took notice.

“I said, ‘Jill [Biden’s wife], 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,’” he said during a 2013 Facebook chat.

“You don’t need an AR-15—it’s harder to aim,” Biden added, “it’s harder to use, and in fact you don’t need 30 rounds to protect yourself. Buy a shotgun! Buy a shotgun!”

Buy a shotgun, Jill. But only shoot at the neighbors. Or maybe aim for the leg of the person entering your home with bad intentions.

It’s so crazy it just might work.
