Gretchen Carlson of FOX News surprised viewers yesterday by expressing her support for banning semi-automatic rifles like the one used to kill 49 people in the Orlando nightclub shooting:
Do we need AR-15s to hunt and kill deer? Do we need them to protect our families? I’m in favor of people being able to carry. Yes, I think some of these mass shooting would have been less deadly if that were the case.
But I’m also with the majority today, taking a stand. Can’t we hold true the sanctity of the Second Amendment while still having common sense?
