Geraldo Rivera Embarrasses Himself On Live TV – Has No Clue What The “AR” In AR-15 Stands For

Gun grabbers know nothing about the guns they are trying to take from law-abiding Americans.

During a segment on Fox News, Geraldo Rivera said that AR-15s have no place in American society.

When asked what “AR” stood for, Geraldo said “Automatic Rifle.”

Nope – the actual meaning of “AR” is ArmaLite rifle.

Breitbart reported:

FOX News personality Geraldo Rivera backed President Biden’s push for an “assault weapons” ban and said that the “AR” in AR-15 stands for “automatic rifle” on Tuesday’s The Five.

Newsweek quoted Rivera telling the co-hosts, “I submit to you, ladies and gentlemen, there is no legitimate reason … to have an AR-15.”

“All I know is is AR-15s have no place in American society, other than sport clubs,” Geraldo insisted.

Geraldo doubled down on his calls for gun control on Twitter:

Geraldo was called out:

Why don’t the gun grabbers learn about guns before trying to take them from law-abiding Americans?
