Carolyn McCarthy: Women Shouldn't Use Assault Rifles, They Should Use Rifles Instead

Non-assault rifles are easier for the dainty little delicate flowers Leon Panetta is sending to the front lines to use. Or something.

PIERS MORGAN: I have an interview coming up with two young women who wrote a piece in which they said they wanted the rights of the AR-15 weapon at home because they feared they would be attacked and they wanted a gun that would guarantee they would murder or would kill their attacker. How do you respond to that particular argument, which is they believe under their second amendment right they should be allowed an AR-15?

CAROLYN MCCARTHY: I will tell you, if you talk to professionals, hunters and certainly sportsmen, theyíll tell you thatís not the gun to use. A rifle is more accurate. Itís certainly easier for a woman to be able to do that.

You just can't make this stuff up, folks. I mean, we all know an AR-15 isn't an "assault rifle" within the real meaning of the term. Now super-genius Carolyn McCarthy does us one better and says it's not even a rifle?

Good to know.

Especially when a different branch of the government refers to select-fire ARs, which fit the textbook definition of "assault rifle", as a "personal defense weapon".

I guess DHS won't be issuing those scary black PDWs to the women.
