So Mitch does CPAC while waving a muzzleloading Hawken rifle......
Does that prove his support for gun rights? Oh h*** no!
Even liberals argue the 2nd Amendment allows ownership of guns such as they were in the Founders’ time. That is, muzzleloaders, flintlocks at that.
Of course there were security concerns. The po-po would have gone all freaky-deaky if McConnell walked onstage with an AR-15. Still, it’s hokey, it’s fake & is exactly like 2004 when Jean F’in Kerry said “Reporting for duty!”
War with the Tea Party? Bring it, ol’ turtleneck.
Seriously WTH was McConnell thinking? He looked like like a cross-dressing grandma holding up a stage prop. I agree with some of the others on the forum: if he really had any sand in his craw, he'd have walked out with a Colt 6920 (or similar).
Then again, if he had any of that sand, he'd have already given The One a political wedgie at least a couple of times.
