You Can't Hide Your Lion Eyes

"We live in an area thatís wooded and secluded,' Biden said. 'I said, Jill, if thereís ever a problem just walk out on the balcony here Ö put that double-barreled shotgun and fire two blasts outside the house.'

'I promise you whoeverís coming in is not gonna,' Biden said. 'You donít need an AR-15 (assault rifle). Itís harder to aim. Itís harder to use and in fact you donít need 30 rounds to protect yourself.'

'Buy a shotgun,' he said, lowering his voice almost to whisper."

That was of course the sage wisdom of notable defense attorney and firearms expert Joseph Robinette Biden Jr., Esq. However he never mentioned what to do if there were three prowlers:

It's rare to see one mountain lion, not because they're scarce, they're just stealthy. But 3? At the same time? And with nothing but glass twixt you and them?

I like cats, but I'd damn sure have had something mag fed while I admired them through the window. 2 rounds? Hell, 15 wouldn't seem like enough. And there'd be a bayonet involved, just 'cause.

A double barreled shotgun has its place, and can be used effectively for defense in a number of situations. It's certainly better than nothing. But just twixt you and me and the entire internets, a long gun that rhymes with Walashnikov capable of holding more rounds than you have fingers and toes is a much better option.
