[See NewsBusters for more.] Nebraska Rep. Don Bacon brought some much needed common sense to CNN Newsroom on Wednesday where he educated host Poppy Harlow on what exactly an AR-15 is and why law-abiding citizens do not need to justify to Harlow why they need one. Harlow could only respond by implying that Bacon isn't protecting people from being murdered.
Harlow began by playing a clip from Tuesday's show of former Aurora Police Chief Daniel Oates declaring the AR-15, "a weapon of war. I think most police chiefs in this country would agree it doesn’t belong on the streets of America.”
