Man cites Joe Biden in shotgun defense

July 18, 2013

Forget Stand Your Ground laws. A man in Washington state is using Vice President Joe Biden as his defense for shooting a gun in the air to scare off what he thought were car thieves.

Jeffery Barton, 52, pleaded not guilty on Wednesday to one count of illegal aiming or discharging a firearm, but said he was just doing what Joe Biden told him to do, according to KOIN.

“I did what Joe Biden told me to do,” Barton told reporters outside the courtroom. “I went outside and fired my shotgun in the air.”

To police, Barton reportedly said he had fired the gun while chasing away people who he thought were breaking into his vehicles.

In February, Biden held an online question-and-answer session where he said at the time people don’t need automatic weapons to protect themselves and should “buy a shotgun” instead.
