Panelist Chris Cillizza, author of The Fix politics blog, discussed Vice President Joe Biden's remark that if Americans want to protect themselves against home intruders, they should "get a double-barrel shotgun." Biden spoke as part of a Facebook town hall Tuesday saying that Americans don't need semi-automatic weapons because shotguns have the same impact. Cillizza said Biden supporters and detractors responded to the remark differently. "Like almost everything in politics these days, it's dependent on the partisan lens through which you see these things," Cillizza said.
