Anyway, this is the sort of thing you get when people who don't know much about guns talk about guns on TV. Here's some highlights, although I'd suggest you watch the whole thing.
Megan McCain, 3:25 - "I felt compelled to be a new face, or just another face because I don't think you see a lot of young women talking about Second Amendment rights and gun ownership."
And here I thought Meggy Mac was 'net savvy. Poor thing, maybe I should email her. (However, I suspect I'm not nearly fabulous enough for her, despite my being famous on the interwebz.)
Also? "Semi assault rifle"? Seriously? It's cute how you make up words, Megan. Too bad they make you sound like an ignorant anti-gunner.
Rachel Maddow, on the Tuscon shooting, 4:49 - "But Jared Loughner would have only had 10 shots if the NRA hadn't pushed for the assault weapons ban to expire, including that ban on those clips."
Oh, dear...where do I begin? Has Rachel never heard about dropping a MAGAZINE and reloading?
Interesting how Megan quickly aligns herself on the high capacity magazine issue with Dick Cheney, who should probably shut up about it too. Especially now, after his name was used over and over as some sort of "Look! I really am a real Republican!" mantra in this video. Sheesh.
6:18 - Neither Rachel nor Megan know what the "gun show loophole" even IS.
Rachel Maddow, 9:27 - "Let's start with the small things like if you're on the terrorism watchlist, you can't buy a gun."
How does Rachel think that watchlist is created? Hell, at this point, I might even be on that list. I never cease to be amazed at the trust some people have in the wisdom and the motives of their government.
Aaaand, Meggy Mac closes the segment with another "semi assault rifle" quote. Sigh.
_________________But I'll be fair...it really wasn't all bad. Both ladies like to shoot and Ms. McCain makes all the right noises - how most gun laws only punish law abiding gun owners, how guns serve as an equalizing force for women, how training and education is an important part of gun ownership. Still, they both have a long way to go and it would have served them both well to speak to real women with guns. I hear there were quite a few in Pittsburgh that weekend.
