VIDEO: MSNBC Host Says Anyone Using More Than 10 Rounds Wants to “Kill US Soldiers”

Joe Scarborough recently went off the deep end and accused anyone who does not believe limiting magazines would stop gun crime of being a “survivalist” planning to kill “US soldiers.” His argument was in reference to Chris Christie’s recent veto of a New Jersey bill that would have banned all magazines holding over 10 rounds, which also would have banned many .22 rifles with tube magazines.

Scarborough’s remarks were as follows:

“I’m sorry, what deer hunter needs more than ten bullets in a clip? If you need more than ten in a clip, you need more than ten in a clip for one reason: you think the federal goverment’s coming to take your crops, y’know, to take your cows, or whatever and you want more than ten because you want to KILL U.S. SOLDIERS who come to your door. Why don’t we just say you’re a survivalist and that’s just stupid BS.”

Of course, he demonstrates his vast knowledge of firearms by deftly refering to magazines as “clips” and not recognizing that tens of millions of Americans own guns for varying purposes. As much as he would like to paint gun owners as a fringe group, most sources report that anywhere from 40-60% of Americans own firearms. Sorry, Scarborough.

What I’d like to know is why these supposed US soldiers would be knocking on law-abiding gun owners’ doors, anyway. No one wants to take our guns, right?
