She speaks the truth…
Host Meghan McCain said during a broadcast of The View that if the government attempts to get AR-15s away from Americans, there will be violence.
McCain said, “The AR-15 is by far the most popular gun in America. … I was just in the middle of nowhere Wyoming, [and] if you’re talking about going and taking people’s guns away from them, there’s going to be a lot of violence.”
Joy Behar responded by saying, “But they lived without them for many years during the ban.” (It appears Behar does not know the 1994-2004 “assault weapons” ban did not ban possession of AR-15s, AK-47s, and other commonly-owned semiautomatic rifles. Rather, it prevented the sale of such rifles if they had a collapsible stock, a thumbhole stock, a flash hider, etc.)
McCain responded to Behar by saying, “I’m not living without guns.”
.@MeghanMcCain is right: The AR-15 is the most popular rifle and is commonly used in competitions, training, and home defense.
Meghan and most Americans rely on their 2nd Amendment for self-defense. The others on this show probably rely on armed guards.🤭pic.twitter.com/hv1zYrybiw
