Fox News’ Gretchen Carlson Goes Rogue… Joins Dems With Call For SHOCKING Gun Ban
Most liberals hate everyone at Fox News for their unabashed support for the Second Amendment, but after what host Gretchen Carlson said this week about “assault weapons,” it appears leftists have now found an ally over at the news network.
“Yes, the Orlando massacre was terror, but there’s no doubt that Omar Mateen was able to kill so many people because he was firing an AR-15 — a military style assault weapon; a weapon easier to buy in the state of Florida than buying a handgun,” she said on Tuesday’s edition of her program.
She then asked whether Americans “need AR-15s to hunt and kill deer” or to “protect our families?”
“I’m in favor of people being able to carry — I think some of these mass shooting would have been less deadly if that were the case,” she continued. “But I’m also with the majority today, taking a stand. Can’t we hold true the sanctity of the Second Amendment while still having common sense?”
According to Breitbart, Carlson then took her battle to Twitter by going after random gun-control opponents.
“It also wasn’t written to blow away people with 30 rounds,” she tweeted to one user who pointed out that the Second Amendment was not drafted to protect deer hunting, but rather to empower the American citizenry with what they need to stand up to their government.
When another user asked the Fox News host why “rich elitists” desire to make it more difficult for everyday Americans to protect themselves, Carlson asked, “U (sic) need 30 rounds to do that?”
Not once during her impassioned pleas for gun control did Carlson mention that that the Orlando massacre occurred in a gun-free zone or that plenty of terror attacks have been committed in the name of Allah using all sorts of deadlier weapons, including pipe bombs, suicide vests and even knives.
Rather, she chose to jump on the liberal gun-control bandwagon, thus signaling to her many fans that the umbilical cord attaching her to the truth had finally snapped.
