    MSNBC MCcarthy interview

    I'm sure someone is creating the same thread here, but who just saw the MCcarthy interview on MSNBC?

    The guy was asking her about the Assault Weapons Ban and features such as barrel shrouds. She says, well I think it's more important that... blah blah (sidesteps the question) The guy (forget who) says: wait wait, do you even know what a barrel shroud is? She says no. I pretty much started clapping. He says, you don't even know what it is and it's in your legislation? Isn't it more important that we look into what causes people to do this?
    Intersesting that mainstream media is saying this. Maybe there is hope. Very sad that an event like this makes people think about it more.

    It's in HR 1022 to be banned and Carolyn McCarthy just told Tucker Carlson she doesn't know what it is. Anyone else see the interview? He had to ask her three times before she finally admitted she dosen't know what it is. He basocally made her look foolish without even trying.

    A barrel shroud is a fake suppressor isn't it?

    Who was the interviewer??

    Sounds like he was on top of his game..

    (I'm at work, I'll try and catch it via reruns..)

    I always wondered how much of the legislation is written by someone else..
    Its pretty clear she didn't write it..


    THANKS!

    It was Tucker Carlson he made her look like the moron she is. one thing I've noticed since this happened is that Fox News isn't as conservative as they like to let people think they are.

    Tucker just absolutely took her apart I screamed out loud WOOHOO no joke... He asked her what a barrel shroud was and at first she tried to dodge the question but he went right back to it, she said she didn't know and he goes, "oh....because....it's....in your...legislation" and she she tried to explain what it was and he says "no, it isn't"

    I f&$#@ love that guy now haaaaaaaa:D

    No surprise. Antis have no idea what they are doing. All they know is they want to disarm us.

    Socialism cannot progress if the peasants possess arms.

    I knew something was wrong with her if she thought an M1 Carbine was an 'assault weapon' - what idiot writes these bills for her

    I am starting to think HR1022 is dead in the water. There is a big 'personal responsibility' angle coming out of this shooting, from almost all sides of media, cept the euros who hate everything America stands for anyway.

    I love this.

    That woman is willing to put people IN JAIL over something (i.e., a barrel shroud) when she doesn't even know what the HELL IT IS!

    McCarthy is a joke in congress anyway - she uses the blood of her own husband to get elected to Congress - nice lady.

    Now can we use this interview to spur some action? How about a form email and a link to McCarthy or other congress people to let them know we knoe they don't know anything! Someone write it up I am not eloquent or nice enough really.

    This is priceless! The fact that she doesn't even know what the hell it is she is trying to ban is priceless! I too was clapping, she just shot herself in the foot on national T.V. This exposes everyone else like her on the gun control side, they are ignorant morons. What is a barrel shroud? I love it!!:D :D

    It's like a heat guard. The bit of metal wrapped around the barrel of a Tec-9 would probably constitute a barrel shroud.

    I am not a fan of this guy in fact I really don't know much about him at all. I did see a small portion of his show yesterday and was surprised at some of the questions he ask the guest who was very antigun. Also he said something to the affect that weren't nearly all handguns auto's and then on to say he really didn't know much about guns at all. I like it when a guy will admit things like that, causes you to have more trust in other things said.
    So who knows maybe this will start us on a path in the right direction of correct firearm information instead of the fallacies and lies we hear so often in the press.

    ... :banghead: ........:rolleyes: ......................:evil:

    What did Napoleon say?... never interrupt your enemy when they are making a mistake. He should have allowed her to continue yapping just a little bit longer until she started talking about AUTOMATIC assault weapons and then asked her if she even knew what an assault weapon was, or if she knows the difference between semi-automatic and automatic weapons. I wonder if she's intelligent enough to realize she just stepped into a large pile of her own do doo.. I love it!

    Wow, post a link to the video. That needs to go onto youtube. "Do you even know what a barrel shroud is?" Comedy gold.

    The California Penal Code will answer all your assault weapon terminology questions!

    I should mention that this law only applies to autoloading pistols. I think virtually all rifles have some kind of handguard that serves the same purpose.
