And here I’d thought all this time that Progressivists were all about Rule By Expert. Apparently not.
During an interview with MSNBC’s Andrea Mitchell, gun-control activist David Hogg claimed those who own AR-15s and similar rifles are not interested in self-defense but in hunting human beings.
“The truth of the matter is weapons like the AR-15 have an effective range of over 1,500 meters,” Hogg said. “If you’re using a weapon with an effective range of over 1,500 meters, you are not defending yourself. You are hunting a human being.”
The National Shooting Sports Foundation, the trade group for the firearms industry, estimated last year that more than 16 million AR-15 and similar rifles had been produced or imported to the United States over the past 25 years. Still, Hogg said no civilians should be allowed to possess those kinds of firearms.
“I don’t think any civilian needs to have their hands on a military weapon like that,” Hogg said.
Aww, ain’t it adorable? This footling brat believes what he thinks means a damned thing to anybody except himself.
As for that “effective range of over 1,500 meters” horseshit, well…no. No, not quite. Might want to consider removing your foot next time before opening your fat yap about things you know absolutely nothing about, bright boy.
