Sunday on ABC’s “This Week,” NRA spokesperson Dana Loesch said calls to ban the AR-15 were really about banning all semi-automatic weapons.
Loesch said, “As far as an AR-15, it’s a semi-automatic this thing originated in the civilian market before it was adapted by the military.This is really a discussion about banning all semi-automatic firearms. And I wish that we could be genuine in our discussion about that. That’s the position on AR-15s. And AR-15s are going to be in that school protecting students and teachers when they return back to class. As far as banning of semi-automatic firearms, think people need to come out and say that is what they are talking about.”
