Joe Scarborough: 2nd Amendment Doesn’t Protect ‘Weapons Of War’

March 18, 2019 9:45 am  

(Breitbart) – MSBNC host Joe Scarborough voiced support for the Second Amendment on Sunday, but stressed it does not protect “weapons of war,” by which he meant AR-15s.

In a series of tweets Scarborough suggested the AR-15, a civilian rifle, is deadlier than the M-16, a military rifle.

The AR-15 is semiautomatic, which means it fires one round each time the trigger is pulled. The M-16 has a fire selector switch which allows the rifle to be switched between semiautomatic and automatic fire. In automatic fire mode the M-16 will fire as many rounds as are in the magazine with a single pull of the trigger.

Yet Scarborough suggests the AR-15 is deadlier than the M-16 and described it as “weapon of war.”

Scarborough tweeted that the AR-15 “was far deadlier than the M-16 used in Vietnam.”

Having painted the AR-15 as a “weapon of war,” Scarborough then tweeted that the Second Amendment does not protect such weapons:

Scarborough’s firearm observations come just hours after Democrat presidential hopeful Robert Francis “Beto” O’Rourke contended that sales of AR-15s ought to be banned in America.
