Geraldo Rivera Embarrasses Himself With Ignorant Comment About AR-15s (VIDEO)

This week, Geraldo Rivera was a guest panelist on The Five on FOX News.

At one point during the show, Rivera launched into a mini-tirade about gun control and mocked people who own the AR-15, saying that the gun should be banned.

However, Rivera made it immediately clear that he had no idea what he was talking about.

Red State has details:

Rivera was attacking people who owned AR-15s, claiming it was about them acting “macho” and “look at me” to which Gutfeld said, “It’s [just] a rifle.”

“It’s not a rifle,” Rivera claimed, saying it was a “machine gun.”

“What does AR stand for?” Gutfeld asked him.

“Automatic rifle,” Rivera responded, getting it just ridiculously wrong.

“No, that’s not what it is,” Gutfeld said.

“All I know is is AR-15s have no place in American society, other than sport clubs,” Geraldo insisted.

All you know is nothing, Geraldo, so what you know isn’t worth much, given you think they’re machine guns. “AR” in AR-15 doesn’t stand for automatic rifle, it stands for “Armalite Rifle.”

Why do people who don’t know what they’re talking about insist on dictating to the rest of us?

Rivera later tweeted this:

Just drop it, Geraldo.
