GOP Congressman SCHOOLS CNN Host Poppy Harlow on AR-15, Gun Rights
Newsbusters.org ^ | 3/26/2021 | Alex Christy

Congressman Don Bacon (R.-Neb.), a former brigadier general in the Air Force, brought some much needed common sense to CNN Newsroom on Wednesday when he educated host Poppy Harlow on what exactly an AR-15 is and why law-abiding citizens do not need to justify to Harlow why they need one.

Don't miss the CNN chyron during the segment suggesting banning weapons was "Gun Reform."

Harlow began by playing a clip from Tuesday's show of former Aurora, Colorado Police Chief Daniel Oates declaring the AR-15, "a weapon of war. I think most police chiefs in this country would agree it doesn’t belong on the streets of America.” Harlow then asked Bacon "What do you think? Do we need another assault weapons ban?"

Geez, you would think that with all the whining about mis and disinformation being tossed about, someone would bring this topic to the top of the heap for the YUGE lies constantly being bleated. Oh, I forgot myself for a second there. I should know better. Anyway 'poopee', you've a better chance (or worse) of dying from CV-19. Fidiot! "No amount of evidence will ever persuade an idiot." Mark Twain. No persuading 'poopee'.

Should have asked her “If you’re really that upset about people getting shot, why not lobby for laws prohibiting the shooting of people?”.

He didn’t school her. He was trying to school her. She kept cutting him off and spent her time moving goal posts.

Teachable moments are great, but unfortunately you can’t teach the demon driven because they are blind, and can’t see the truth. You can only hope that one day God will lift the scales fro their eyes so they can see

Liberals operate totally on a level of emotion. That’s why they’re so averse to reason. Apples and oranges.

Let me see if I understand the crackpot Chief Cop, law abiding citizens should not be allowed to protect themselves even though police are incapable of protecting anyone. Unlike the movies, police do not stop crime they respond to it. It is on us to stop criminal acts against ourselves and our families. But this lefty cop does not think I am entitled to the tools to do what he is incapable of doing.

“a weapon of war. I think most police chiefs in this country would agree it doesn’t belong on the streets of America.”

so does that mean the cops are at war with the citizenry?

wonderful...

And there are some times that just a good, loud “EFF U, you ignorant slut!” would be warranted and quite justified...

By her definition ANY gun is a weapon of war! If a gun can kill people it is a weapon of war. She didn’t want to hear anything else. A loaded gun CAN kill someone if it is pointed at someone and the trigger is pulled! The liberal talking point is that the AR-15 is a weapon of war. You only have an AR to KILL people. REPEAT, repeat and repeat the lies! That is their job. Propagandists. They are not journalists. They have an active agenda to disarm every law abiding citizen in the country and world. The only people they want armed are the despots and thugs.

If I ever am approached by a liberal “reporter” discussing “weapons of war”, I would hold an AR-15 in one hand and a Remington 7400 in the other and ask the “reporter” which was a “weapon of war”???

CNN needs to have their license pulled. Their attempts to violate citizens’ Second Amendment Rights should cost them their First Amendment Rights.

I’ve used pictures of a run of the mill M&P AR - and a Ruger Mini Ranch next to one another.

I asked a friend that I was debating with which one was an evil “assault” rifle. Hilarity ensued.

heres the hypocrisy

thousands killed by guns each year, not tens of thousands, but thousands, most are criminals shot in self defense

but the left fights to pay for and maximize the number of abortions, the murder of innocent preborn children, and have government PAY for it, to the tune of over 1 million us babies murdered each year simply out of ‘convenience’
