Conservative pundit Dana Loesch shredded former Fox News anchor Gretchen Carlson over claims she made about guns, telling her she should stick to beauty pageants.
“Ordinary people didn’t have AR-15s before 2004. They’re not some time-honored American tradition, they’re a recent mistake that we could fix and save thousands of lives in the process,” Carlson stated on X, taking a poke at the Daily Wire’s Ben Shapiro and his “love” of AR-15s.
She then doubled down on her anti-gun stance in a second video which won her an epic reply from Loesch.
“More math: this rifle is used the least annually in homicides. Blunt objects, hands, & feet outnumber. Illegally possessed handguns via the black market (FBI, UCR, DOJ) overwhelmingly drive homicide by gun – but DGU still outmeasures all. Stick to beauty pageants, Gretchen,” Loesch said effectively torching Carlson’s flawed argument while user Lorraine Yuriar pointed out that Carlson was getting hammered in the Community Notes as well.

As Carlson was thrashed not only by users but in the Community Notes themselves, Loesch realized why Carlson was never friendly to her, “I remember while promoting my book #HandsOffMyGun I came across Gretchen in the green room of Fox and Friends. Everyone there was always very kind but she was the exception and was not friendly at all. I shrugged it off but it makes sense now considering my book title.”
People lined up on X to nail Carlson over her incorrect assertions concerning guns:
You are so wrong on this, not only wrong but rudely wrong. Being ignorant to this degree is no longer an excuse, Gretchen. Do better.

hey Gretchen — AR-15 is just a model of rifle. AR stands for Armalite — the company that first produced it. It doesn’t mean Assault Rifle (you might have known this but your video shows a certain disdain so I wasn’t sure). I have an AR-15 and it’s never shot anyone. And,…

For the clueless (that’s you) 1 in 5 is 20 in 100.

Wild way to admit you were misleading (at best) earlier.
But now – how many of these 500+ mass shootings involved AR15s? Would you be surprised to learn that AR15s only represent a tiny portion of them, and that common handguns make up the vast majority?

Well, Bless your heart, Ma’am. Unfortunately for you, your comments have made it imperative that you have some facts dropped on you:
– The Colt Sporter SP-1 (aka Civilian AR-15) was introduced to the civilian market in 1965.
– There were MILLIONS owned long before 2004.

Except you’re literally wrong. Millions of Americans owned them before 2004. Did you even do the most basic research?

I live a half mile from the bowling alley in Lewiston Maine. I was sitting in my kitchen in the dark with helicopters circling over head for a mass shooter on the loose in my neighborhood. All I had was my two “assault rifles” and several 30 round magazines to protect myself… pic.twitter.com/koBCTWJdrX

Mao took the guns, Hitler took the guns. Stalin took the guns. Hugo Chavez took the guns.

Per the FBI, 93% of firearm murders are from pistols, not rifles.
An AR-15 is just a standard semi-automatic rifle with a different cosmetic design.
Think of a Honda Accord & a Honda CRV. Same engine. Same transmission. Same electronics, but LOOK very different.

Another knock-kneed liberal commenting about something she knows nothing about. How embarrassing. You should stick to doing morning shows, where low IQs are not only tolerated, they’re are welcomed. #AirHead

Again your Lying, Why?
There were 100s of replies to you from Ordinary People, who tried to tell you they owned ARs decades before 2004
Why are you ignoring us?
Again, I bought my 1st AR as a 19 year old College Student in 1985, and many of my friends had them too
None of us…
