In reality, the jackasses are the people mindlessly opposing them without even knowing how the guns work.
On Thursday’s show, the Morning Joe crew examined yesterday’s Senate hearing on prevent gun violence. Neither co-host was exactly pleased — and especially not with NRA head Wayne LaPierre and those arguing women need high-capacity magazines.
Upon looking at clips of Sen. Mitch McConnell — who said a mother may run out of bullets when defending herself and her children — and gun rights advocate Gail Trotter, Mika Brzezinski and Joe Scarborough appeared exasperated. “An assault weapon in the hands of a young woman defending her babies in her home becomes a defense weapon,” Trotter said during the hearing.
“Therein lies the problem,” Scarborough lamented, “with having to defend assault weapons. Because if you go out and try to defend assault weapons, then you end up looking like a jackass.”
“I’m sorry, but that’s true,” Brzezinski chimed in.
