Skip to comments.Joe Scarborough Continues To Tell The Lie That AR-15s Are More Powerful Than Weapons Used In Vietnam
Posted on 06/07/2022 1:41:41 PM PDT by rktman
During the Monday episode of “Morning Joe,” the popular MSNBC host informed his audience that the AR-15 weapon is more powerful than the weapons used by America in Vietnam.
Of course, that’s complete fiction and utter nonsense, but that didn’t stop him from lying again.
Where the hell is Scarborough getting his information from? A simple Google search will tell you that the idea that the AR-15 is more lethal, powerful or deadly than the M16s used in Vietnam is downright laughable.

I carried the M-14, now that was a battle rifle!
Nor was it more powerful or lethal than the M14s used prior to the introduction of the M16.
Democrats lie. That’s common knowledge.
Oh yeah. We have been advised of late that 9mm is the most lethal round ever produced. No, really. .308? 30-06? That ain’t nuthin’. Right branDUHn?
Joe simply isn’t that bright.
.50 cal ma deuce——AR-15 says “Meh, watch this Ma!”
Mr 105mm M102 says, “Surprise Ma Duce, Joe and Micah!”
I translate Joe’s statement as “I’m a complete fxxxing moron, I have no idea what the heck I’m talking about, and every word out of my diseased gob is a lie.”
I prefer Sonic or Five Guys.
Thanks for serving.
Same here. Expert on both the 14 and 16.
I wonder what these yahoos would say if they learned the military is considering going to a larger caliber because the 556 is under powered.
Joe is an idiot of the highest order. That statement is just more proof of it.
“popular MSNBC host”? He’s not even in the top twenty.
Hey Joe...Ever fire an M60??????
Um correct me if i am wrong but was not the M -14 replete with it’s very powerful .308 round not used for the majority of the conflict. When the M-16’s came out my grand set his out in the weather over night. Went to the range the next day and it jammed over and over again. He was given some R and R , purchased a Thompson which he carried in WW II and Korea. He used that or a 12 ga for the remainder of his 2nd tour. We buried him at the ripe old age of 88 several years ago so I guess it worked out for him.
Powerful means nothing if you can’t hit anything
There was pew,
then pew pew pew,
then pew pew pew pew pew pew pew pew pew
The sock Puppet?
the L1A1 that the Aussies carried in Vietnam was better. Yes, I’m a FAL fan.
Joe is an idiot. There have been improvements to .556 in the intervening years, as all ammo has gotten better since the Vietnam War. But it really doesn’t make up for the rate of fire difference between the AR15 and M16.
And, the number of chamberings now available in the short action AR15 are mind boggling. Thousands of online discussions on gun forums can’t unpack that can of worms.
That’s why the AR15 is America’s favorite rifle. It can accommodate all shooters with adjustments to ergonomics, recoil, and the full gamut of sights and technology.
So, the rifle that works for everybody should be banned /sarc.
