Joe Biden has never served in law enforcement and it is a fairly safe bet that throughout his career, he has never had to actually defend himself in a life-threatening situation.
So, it is pretty funny (not really) that Joe Biden is offering suggestions to law enforcement on how to use less lethal force.
Needless to say, those suggestions did not go over well, and law enforcement agencies shredded Biden for even making them.
Shoot Them in the Leg
Here is Biden’s great idea…
“There’s a lot of things we’ve learned and it takes time, but we can do.
“You can ban chokeholds … you have to teach people how to de-escalate circumstances. … Instead of anybody coming at you and the first thing you do is shoot to kill, you shoot them in the leg.”
Former VP Joe Biden’s suggestion that cops should “shoot someone in the leg” if they’re coming at them is insulting and demonstrates his incompetence & inability to understand the grave dangers cops face as they protect the public and themselves from violent, heartless criminals. pic.twitter.com/7faAJjCoyZ

Last time I checked, someone can still fire their own weapon at you if they are struck in the leg.
When a gun is drawn, it is done so to put the threat down, period, something Joe Biden simply would not understand because he has had armed security around him his whole life.
