AR-15s and other “assault” weapons are evil and bad, unless they’re used to defend murals of Teh Won™ from vandalism.

That’s according to Martin Bashir, who has never met a gun law that didn’t make him have a spontaneous orgasm, and actually compared the NRA to Hitler!

Newsbusters reports:

For some background, since 2008, Davis has had murals of Obama painted on the exterior walls of his restaurant. Unfortunately, vandals have at times thrown paint on these murals including this past Monday.

As Bashir predictably praised his guest – even comparing the defacement of these murals to Obama’s struggles with his political detractors! – he eventually said, “But thinking of your willingness to protect this mural, Mr. Davis, we also know that in addition to your support for the president, you support the first amendment and you also support the second amendment. And we have a picture of you with a weapon. I believe it’s an AR-15 over your shoulder. Now sir, I have to ask you, would you consider using a weapon like that on someone who was prepared to deface a painting?”

In fact, after Davis gave a lengthy answer to Bashir’s question which included “I will do the right thing to defend and protect my property,” the anti-gun host concluded the interview by saying, “Thank you for your resoluteness and perseverance, and I’d love to have breakfast at the Breakfast Klub myself sometime.”

So to recap, “assault weapons” are evil and bad, and are only good when used to defend liberal causes, items, murals, etc. In all other cases, they should be banned using whatever means necessary, even selectively editing video to show gun rights supporters allegedly “heckling” a grieving Sandy Hook parent, who is testifying in favor of an assault weapons ban.
