A female Donald Trump supporter who opposed gun control appeared on a CNN panel Thursday, and she destroyed the gun control narrative.
“You can’t start messing with our constitutionally protected rights.”
Her name is Carrie Lightfoot, and she is a NRA certified pistol instructor.
At one point in the panel, a man named Scott Pappalardo said, “An AR-15 should not be used as a home protection weapon.”
Lightfoot said, “Do you know what a fabulous gun that is for women?”
“It’s a fabulous gun. So is a shotgun,” he said.
She responded by saying that a shotgun is “much harder to handle.”
Lightfood also took up an impassioned defense of the Second Amendment.
“This is a constitutionally protected right–this is not a government legislated privilege, such as driving a car.”
CNN host Alisyn Camerota then asked her if she thought “the forefathers meant the AR-15” when they wrote the Bill of Rights.
“I think they meant our protection against a tyrannical government and for our self protection,” she said. “Of course they don’t know what the guns are. But–you can’t start messing with our constitutionally protected rights.”
Pro-gun Americans will love that defense of the Second Amendment.
