Arrested After Firing Shotgun in Air
By Harold Hutchison
A man who was arrested for firing a shotgun into the air has claimed he only followed Joe Biden’s advice. Jeffrey Barton, of Vancouver, Washington, fired as he was chasing away suspected car burglars.
In February, responding to a woman during a Facebook town-hall meeting, Biden said, “I said, ‘Jill, 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.’”
Barton told KOIN-TV, “I did what Joe Biden told me to do.”
