2020 Democratic presidential candidates are talking a lot about AR-15s, which should come as no surprise, as this rifle has been in the crosshairs of the left and part of the national debate for years.

Variations of the AR-15 have been used in many recent mass shootings, including the 2018 Pittsburgh synagogue shooting, Parkland school shooting and Las Vegas concert shooting.

The Daily Caller caught up with gun expert Chris Mcrae with Magpul Industries at the 2019 National Rifle Association convention in Indianapolis, Indiana, where he debunked some of the biggest AR-15 myths that some of the 2020 candidates are peddling.
