Dem Sen Shaheen: Someone Who Buys An AR-15 Is ‘Buying It Do Do Bad Things’

Senator Jeanne Shaheen (D-NH) stated that a person who buys an AR-15 “isn’t buying it for target shooting. They’re not buying it to go out and hunt deer. You don’t need an AK-47 or an AR-15 to hunt deer. They’re buying it to do bad things,” while speaking with Keene, New Hampshire’s WKBK’s “Good Morning with Dan Mitchell.”

Shaheen said, [relevant remarks begin around 5:50] “You know, the fact is, the AR-15, the gun that Mateen used, that’s a weapon of war. It’s advertised as being able to do technologically advances in killing people that previous weapons have been unable to do, and somebody who’s buying that kind of a weapon isn’t buying it for target shooting. They’re not buying it to go out and hunt deer. You don’t need an AK-47 or an AR-15 to hunt deer. They’re buying it to do bad things, and we need to recognize that, and address it.”
