Meghan McCain Warns Of ‘A Lot Of Violence’ If Guns Are Taken Away

In the wake of the recent mass shooting that left seven people dead in West-Texas, The View Co-Host Meghan McCain weighed in on the topic of stricter gun laws with a warning that American citizens won't take kindly to having their firearms taken away.

When asked about public access to assault rifles specifically, McCain had a lot to say.


She opened the conversation stating that only those with a background in firearms are qualified to be talking about gun laws in the media.

"There are people talking about guns that clearly have never shot a gun," she explained.

"I will say this is a ground-level issue for me."


"If you’re going to be a gun-grabber, you don’t get my vote, period," she continued, "We got to have a different conversation."

McCain went to argue that making firearm laws stricter could have an adverse effect.


"The AR-15 is by far the most popular gun in America, by far," she said, "I was just in the middle of nowhere Wyoming, if you're talking about taking people’s guns from them, there’s going to be a lot of violence."

When it was brought up that many Americans lived without assault rifles during their initial banning, McCain began to get flustered.

"I’m not living without guns," she said, "It’s just that simple!"

The conversation didn't continue for much longer, as McCain acknowledged that she didn't have much of the audience's support.
