To be fair, if I had a chainsaw bayonet, I probably could go for the leg.
Stats seem to show that it’s hard enough for trained cops to even hit center mass most of the time under immediate stress of a charging perp. Now let’s make them only legally able to hit a leg… Great plan, Joe!
Gonna have to increase hazard pay to cops. Joe’s plan will result in more cop deaths.
Police should get more hazard pay.
Words from a mental midget. Ask a doctor where one of the largest arteries is. Hint: Femoral. Where is it at? I saw a video from Iran I believe. After suspect with knife was shot in the leg, he bled out in about 2 minutes.
Your comment reminded me of this: “Washington Redskins safety Sean Taylor has died, a day after he was shot in the leg”. This was back in 2007.

It’s staggering that anyone would consider putting Joe Biden into the highest office in our land. His unfortunate condition is quite clear. His behavior repeatedly goes directly against some of the most sacred ideals of his own party, yet they shamelessly whitewash it, and pretend it isn’t so. It’s torture to watch him speak about the subject of the second amendment knowing how many people are willing to support him for the office of President. Trump may sometimes be uncomfortably brash, but he can consistently put coherent sentences together.
In a way, Joe is sort of self supporting his own philosophy about guns by serving as his own example of someone who, just maybe, shouldn’t have one lying around within reach. None the less, I won’t support taking his shotgun away unless he gets due process first, even if he would not extend me the same courtesy to me, because that’s what real Americans do.
Oops, sorry about the accidental me me in my sentence, that belonged in the gun meme’s catagory. Be safe, Vote smart
Agreed, however, due to Biden’s apparent ignorance on the topic of firearms, a topic on which he continually gives horribly bad advice, such as this, and others that are criminal acts, it seems to be an accurate descriptor. Biden’s statement is egregiously ignorant and wrong.
James should have directed the diminutive descriptor at Biden’s statement, not Biden directly. People die, and sometimes very quickly, from being shot in the leg. Biden seemingly believes that leg wounds are non-lethal. My link to a news story is just one case of many that clearly illustrates how ignorant and wrong his statement is.
The media, or someone with knowledge of the topic of leg wounds, such as an ER doctor, should have provided information showing how ignorant and wrong, even if only from a medical point-of-view, his statement is. We know how ignorant and wrong his statement is from a firearm usage perspective. That perspective, we also know, would be ignored or ridiculed if one of us rebutted his statement in the MSM.
You are more than welcome to disagree with others, but the name-calling isn’t allowed. Someone could tell me the clouds are made up of cotton candy and insist that it’s true, but that doesn’t mean I get to call them names in the Community. Calling them a name takes away my credibility on any point I’m trying to make.
We both know that in a self-defense situation – no matter who you are – shooting in the leg will result in a miss more times than shooting center body mass. It increases the chance of hitting an innocent bystander and is a bad idea. But, that does not justify name-calling.
A good friend of mine frequently reminds me, don’t let the actions or words of another change who you are. Don’t let the negative, hurtful, or wrong comments of someone else make you lower your standards of who you are.
The goal here is productive conversation, not nastiness.
OK, I’ll put my soapbox away…
Again, I agree. I only used James’ statement as a reference. I understand that it is wrong, as I explained in my post. Neither did I use an ad hominem attack against Biden in my posts. I only referenced Biden’s comment as being ignorant, not Biden.
Maybe if we accept that aiming at knee caps is more humane the number of misses will help build the case for automatic weapons… see the glass is half full…
Let someone go at Joe Biden with a knife and see how many times he gets shot by his guards.
For those old enough to remember Roy Rogers, he never shot the bad guy. He always shot the gun out of their hand.
Part of the problem is too many people only know the theatrical version of what a gun does.
Like a person shot with a Magnum handgun will fly at least twelve feet through the air.
What planet does Biden live on? Capping and non-lethal wounding shots went out twenty plus years ago. Is he living in a bubble? The only time lethal force is justified is in protection of life or to prevent sexual assault. Warning shots are only in the movies Joe.
Must have been a “P” rated round, we all know the +P+ rounds will make a charging bull fly across a field. I couldn’t believe it when I first read about that.
He IS that stupid. He is from Del. and I live in an adjacent state so I heard about him a lot. He says stupid things and spends most of his time back peddling. He is an idiot. I don’t know how the people of Del. kept electing him.
If you had a goose that laid golden eggs, would you care how smart it was?
You’d love.to teach him about center mass?? REALLY? This guy is a know it all Jerk like EVERYBODY HERE is in agreeance. Or dont we have the right to use insults and NON foul language just between us in regards to lowlife who outwardly insist ALL OF US 2ND AMMENDMENT SUPPORTERS, The entire right wing portion of this nation and insult people to their faces at rallies or on his basement in a spaced out incoherent manner and accept that? I thought this is where we join together or have freedom of speech, our first amendment right on this site, or I guess not. Nobody is swearing, nobody using violent language futile little children we’re told to be respectful of the MKST DISRESPECTFUL PERSON in the public eye, Unbelieveable! Sometimes I feel I’m in mr Roger’s neighborhood. Ioke the other guys response to you suggesting we show BITEN all about center mass, “I’ll tell him next time he calls”, good one. Sorry, he IS a Jerk, everybody hear and all.kver this country feel the same. Hes the spokesman AGAINST EVERYTHING THE USCCA STANDS FOR AS WELL AS THE NRA AND OUR CONSTITUTION, and we’re being told to be respectful of him? This is unreal. Never thought I’d hear an anti first ammendment request from this organization!
