The media’s favorite teen gun control activist appeared on MSNBC this week and made another absurd claim about guns. This time he is claiming that the AR-15 has a range of 1,500 meters and that people who own them are hunting other humans.
The Washington Free Beacon reports:
David Hogg Claims AR-15 Owners Are ‘Hunting’ Human Beings
During an interview with MSNBC’s Andrea Mitchell, gun-control activist David Hogg claimed those who own AR-15s and similar rifles are not interested in self-defense but in hunting human beings.
After telling viewers that Americans need to find unity in addressing gun violence, Hogg was asked about his recent efforts to ban certain kinds of semiautomatic firearms at the state level. He said he and other March for Our Lives activists had introduced a ballot initiative to ban so-called assault weapons in Florida. He said those who own an AR-15, the most popular rifle in the United States, want to hunt other people.
“The truth of the matter is weapons like the AR-15 have an effective range of over 1,500 meters,” Hogg said. “If you’re using a weapon with an effective range of over 1,500 meters, you are not defending yourself. You are hunting a human being.”

Perhaps David should pick another issue to focus on. He doesn’t seem to know very much about guns.
