Gingrich Slams Morgan Over 'Lovely Propaganda'

Former Speaker of The House Newt Gingrich on CNN with host Piers Morgan:

Morgan “How many more bullets do you need to fire, Mr. Speaker, before that qualifies as a dangerous killing machine by your criteria?”

Gingrich “Well, by my criteria, and this goes back to the question of what you respect, Piers. I think the Second Amendment really matters.”

Morgan “I put it to you that an AR-15 military-style assault weapon was used in the last five mass shootings,”

Gingrich “It’s not a military-style assault weapon. Look, this is a lovely propaganda.”

Morgan “What else do you call then? A machine that can fire 100 bullets in a minute. What else do you call it?”

Gingrich “I would simply say to you that millions of people, by your own definition, own an AR-15, They’re law-abiding. They think it is their right under our Constitution to own it, and don’t kid the rest of us.”

“[T]he reason you find so many of us, and by the way, it’s a substantial majority — I think the last time I saw, 63 percent of the American people agree that the Second Amendment is actually there to protect us from tyranny. The reason you find so many of us very reluctant to go down this road is we believe each step down this road leads to the next step and the next step and the next step.”
