(CNN) – Assault weapons aren’t needed, period. Not even in earthquakes. At least, that’s what Vice President Joe Biden says.Answering critics who say assault weapons would be useful as a last line of defense should a natural disaster result in chaos, Biden gave some advice Thursday in a discussion about gun control during a Google+ Hangout. The vice president, known for his colorful, off-the-cuff remarks, said a double-barrel shotgun would be more practical in such a scenario, adding assault weapons are harder to handle for people unfamiliar with the firearms. “It’s harder to use an assault weapon to hit something than it is a shotgun, OK?” he said, as he mimicked holding a gun with both arms. “So if you want to keep people away in an earthquake, buy some shotgun shells.” http://politicalticker.blogs.cnn.com/2013/01/24/bidens-gun-advice-for-earthquakes/
