Meghan McCain Says “There’s Going To Be A Lot Of Violence’ If Weapons Are Banned
During the season debut of “The View,” the co-host talked about a big issue that has been affecting the country: mass shootings.
While discussing the recent tragic events that happened in places like El Paso, Texas, co-host Whoopi Goldberg pointed out that the suspect in the shooting was able to purchase his assault-style rifle through a “loophole.” As Sunny Hostin blamed Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell for his lack of action on any assault weapons legislation, Meghan McCain jumped in and explained what she thought about gun control coming from “the chick on the panel that spent most of her break shooting.”
“This is a ground-level issue for me,” she said, referring to 2020 Democratic presidential candidate Beto O’Rourke’s mandatory buyback plan. “If you’re going to be a gun-grabber, you don’t get my vote, period. We got to have a different conversation. The AR-15 is by far the most popular gun in America, by far,” McCain said. “I was just in the middle of nowhere Wyoming, if you’re talking about taking people’s guns from them, there’s going to be a lot of violence.”
“But they lived without them for many years during the ban.”
“I’m not living without guns,” McCain responded. “It’s just that simple!”
Gun control has been a topic that has been heavily talked about following the latest mass shootings. Many Americans have called for stricter gun laws. However, Texas just passed several laws, loosening them up.
While many believe having less access to guns would prevent mass shootings, there’s some people like McCain who argue that they feel even safe having them.
“None of you feel safe? I feel safe that I can protect myself,” McCain said. “Alright, welcome back.”
