Dem. Senator Jeanne Shaheen: People who buy AR-15s out ‘to do bad things’ — Audio

ShaheenAccording to Senator Jeanne Shaheen, D-N.H., people who buy AR-15s are out to do bad things — all of them, without exception.  She made the statement during an interview on “Mitchell in the Morning” on Monday, and to no one’s surprise, she offered absolutely no proof to back up her outrageous claim.

“Well, I think people need to have their voices heard, and what I’ve heard from people in New Hampshire is they think there’s reasonable legislation that we can pass including things like looking at the types of weapons that so easy for people to get,” she said.

“The fact is, the AR-15, the gun that (Omar) Mateen used, that’s a weapon of war; it’s advertised as being able do technologically advances in killing people that previous weapons have been unable to do and somebody who is buying that kind of a weapon isn’t buying it for target shooting,” she added. “They’re not buying it to go out and hunt deer. You don’t need an AK-47 or an AR-15 to hunt deer. They’re buying it to do bad things and we need to recognize that and address it.”

In other words, everyone who has an AR-15 is “out to do bad things,” according to Shaheen.

Will this presidential election be the most important in American history?

That’s probably news to the owners of the 5 – 10 million AR-15 rifles currently in circulation.

And it obviously doesn’t matter to Shaheen that Mateen didn’t use an AR-15.

But as we’ve seen from so many anti-gun liberals, facts don’t matter.

Here’s the audio of her comment:
