Carolyn McCarthy Explains Why Women Shouldn’t Be Allowed to Protect Their Homes With AR-15s

Single-issue gun-grabbing congresscritter Carolyn McCarthy (D-NY) is not only a tyrant and a moron, but apparently a sexist. Readers will recall that she wanted to ban firearms that feature a barrel shroud, which she defined as a “shoulder thing that goes up.” Now she explains why women should not be allowed to defend themselves and their children with AR-15 rifles:

“A rifle is more accurate. It’s certainly easier for a woman to able to do that.”

That is, rifles are more accurate than AR-15s and also easier for hapless women to fire. Apparently she doesn’t know that AR-15s are rifles, much less that they are extremely accurate.

Seeing is believing, if you can stomach Piers Morgan:

Funny, this woman learned how to handle an AR-15 quickly enough:

On a tip from Henry B. Via Breitbart.

    She better tell ObrownMao that the new female combat troops he approved won’t be able to handle the AR-15 select-fire variant (aka M4) they will be issued upon enlistment.

  • Sam Adams

    An AR-15 is a good weapon for a woman because they have little recoil, and have enough ammo that a group of attackers can potentially be stopped. Shotguns are better at stopping people, but a 12 gauge recoil is going to be feared by most women.

    Now, it is true that an AR-15 is not a battle rifle and that if you are shooting someone at 600 to 1000 yards, a battle rifle, such as an M1 Garande or a deer hunting rifle with a telescopic sight might be a better choice….

    Moron.

    For home protection, I prefer a .357 mag, my kidlet likes the .380 PPK, ala Bond. You can’t keep an AR-15 in a drawer, or in more intimate places, but an AR15, or other types, are available.

  • Dave

    Ditto to what Sam said. Except shotguns can be loaded with standard bird shot and bird shot reduces recoil substantially whilst at the same time is very effective as a home defence round.

    Gun expert Jeff Quinn demonstrates:

    A question for these gun grabbing libs:
    What is more dangerous, a four, or five tine pitchfork ?

  • Dave

    Jim,

    The problem with the .357 round for home defence is twofold: (1) Way too load. It will blow your eardrums out in a confined space. (2) The muzzle flash will temporarily blind you in a dark house.

    Dave, I didn’t say what the load was (or how loud it will be, which will scare off any accomplices), nor the projectiles I prefer (classified). When it “hits”, you stay “hit”. And warning shots are best aimed at the floor, to much trouble fixing roofs.

    “A question for these gun grabbing libs:

    Is one of them an assault pitch fork?

  • Dave

    Jim,

    Any seasoned Cop would advise you that the .357 round is not optimal for a home self defence round. Far from it.

    I know most everybody is on board with this, but please do not watch CNN, ever, even at the airport, do not patronize any advertiser you happen to see on that Monument to Idiocy, deport the moron Piers Morgan as soon as possible (yeah, I know, the Brits don’t want him back, and who could blame them?), throw all libtards off of Fox, please, they only gum up the works and we can get plenty of Liberalism/Statism/Marxism-Leninism on virtually every other television network, any time of day, anywhere. Buh-bye, CNN! So long! F— you!

    Nice to see a gorgeous (aren’t they all?) conservative girl doing what she does best… although I can think of a few other things I’m sure she’d be outstanding at :-D

    It’s an ideology of, by, and for the ignorant. Don’t expect consistency.

    Where were the bullets at again? The picture was confusing.

  • dennis

    That is quite a pair of guns she has.. That said, NO I WILL NOT WATCH PIERS (URANUS) MORGAN It is against my religion, I am a devout a-hole hater.

  • Dr. 9

    This leftist moron got swept into public office years ago after her husband was killed by a psycho aboard a Long Isalnd, NY train, along with several other people. She was elected by the equally idiotic liberals of Long Island on a pure sympathy vote. She has never once called for putting crazy people away where they belong, nor is anyone aware of “anything” she’s done while in congress other than waste our money.

  • OldmanRick

    Actually, an AR is quite an acceptable weapon for women. It is lightweight, little if any recoil, easy to reload, and highly accurate. It also has a large capacity to stop a number of bad guys.

    With the current price and availability of ammo, no warning shots in my neighborhood. Plus if I only have seven rounds in a magazine, all of them need to count.

    My mom hunted with a 30-06 and could also handle a 45 automatic and 38 police special

  • Passably Affable

    Has anyone asked this genius what she thinks of women in combat?
