Video: College students demonstrate they know nothing about guns they want banned

students know nothing about the guns they want bannedIt’s no surprise that liberal students at the liberal George Washington University want so-called “assault weapons” banned.  But how much do they know about the guns they want banned?  As it turns out, not much.

Young America’s Foundation’s Spencer Brown said he went to the school to see how much they know about the “assault weapons” they want banned.

The resulting video below says it all.

Brown added:

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

While a couple students confidently claimed, “A lot of people don’t know how to control their use of guns,” and “Anything above what a shotgun would be […] is just not necessary,” they simply couldn’t follow up by defining the very weapons they wanted to ban.

In fact, their answers were stunningly bizarre.

Many of their attempts to answer the question hit all the tired and overused liberal talking points about “military-style, high-capacity” firearms. When pressed to follow her strange definition to its logical conclusion, one young woman admitted that she believed a rock “is an assault weapon, I guess.” A helpful vegetarian offered hunting advice, warning against using assault weapons to hunt deer noting “you’re pretty much just making ground beef at that point.”

You read that right — a rock.

And of course, the ones who mentioned “automatic” weapons were oblivious to the fact that those weapons are already illegal for the average gun owner.

Besides, they probably wouldn’t know the difference between an automatic and a semi-automatic weapon.

Kinda like William Weld, the Libertarian VP candidate who actually thinks one can convert a semi-automatic to an automatic weapon by removing the firing pin.

Brown had more say on the subject:

Others did their best to keep up their expert appearance. When asked to expound on what he meant by military-style assault weapons one young man wagered it might have something to do with the color of the weapon, saying it would be “made out of a different material, like something black,” with “more expressed features, like the trigger might be larger … it could have, like, those rings around the barrel.”


Here’s what’s so scary about this.  As Brown correctly notes, these young skulls full of mush are fed “endless hours” of liberal talking points, psychobabble and nonsense.  As a result they’re woefully unprepared for reality.

But it gets worse.  These students may one day grow up to become elected officials and bureaucrats.  If this is the level of knowledge they bring to those jobs, America’s goose is cooked.
