CNN’s Gagliano: The Founders ‘Could Not Envision’ an 18-Year-Old Buying ‘A Weapon of War’



The following article appeared in Breitbart on February 20th

By Ian Hanchett

UPDATE: Gagliano said gunpowder was invented in 700 AD, not 1700, as previous versions of this post said. The post has been corrected.

On Monday’s broadcast of CNN’s “New Day,” CNN Law Enforcement Analyst and retired FBI Supervisory Special Agent James Gagliano stated that the Founding Fathers “could not envision that an 18-year-old kid could go in a gun store, he can’t buy beer, but he could buy a semiautomatic weapon, and it’s a weapon of war.”

Gagliano began by saying that the tip the FBI received about the Parkland shooter should have been passed on to an agent, and “somewhere along the way” there was a mistake in the handling of the tip.

Later on, after the discussion turned to gun control, Gagliano stated, “I’m a veteran. I’m a former law enforcement officer. I’m a gun owner. I have a concealed carry permit. I am a hunter. I’m the exact person who needs to step up and say, we invented gunpowder in 700 AD. The first guns were mid-14th century invented. The — 1791, the Second Amendment comes online. And here we are in 2018, and we’re hanging onto this and we’re going, ‘We just can’t talk about this. Because if we do that, we’re somehow going to tick off the Founding Fathers.’ The Founding Fathers could not envision that an 18-year-old kid could go in a gun store, he can’t buy beer, but he could buy a semiautomatic weapon, and it’s a weapon of war. … It has a collapsible stock. It has a pistol grip. It has detachable magazines. We have to make sure that those kinds of things don’t fall into the hands of somebody like this.”

Ed.  Gagliano is wrong. The Founders could indeed envision a young man wishing to fight for his country or keep his family safe. And the AR 15 available to most Americans is hardly a weapon of war.

What the Founders could NOT have envisioned is a taxpayer being legally forced to pay for the transformation of a young man into a young woman. 

The Founders could NOT have envisioned America hating terrorists being paid to stay in the country!

The Founders could NOT have envisioned tax dollars supporting the murder of newborns.

The Founders could NOT have envisioned masked Antifa thugs beating the law abiding while police stood by, doing nothing, at the direction of liberal office holders.
