Gun debates usually are not fun because of the seriousness of the issue and because the default rallying cry of gun control activists is that defenders of the Second Amendment have “blood on their hands” and don’t care about the innocent people who are hurt or killed from gun violence.
While that is, of course, not remotely true, a bit of humor was to be had this week in the gun rights debate when Fox News commentator Geraldo Rivera piggybacked on a tweet made by unhinged liberal “comedian” Sarah Silverman about hunters. Here’s what Silverman tweeted:
Hunting is the sport of the diminutive penis
— Sarah Silverman (@SarahKSilverman) September 3, 2019
Rivera went even further:
AR15 are the symptom of small penises https://t.co/GGnrxbC0DK

This… did not go over well with female gun owners, who lowered the boom on Rivera. As you can see from the screen grab below, the tweet was seriously ratioed:
Radio talk show host and former NRA spokeswoman Dana Loesch hilariously made mincemeat out of Geraldo’s tweet:
I have several AR-15s, Geraldo. Is it because I have a small penis? https://t.co/LdkHSQST0C

Other gun rights activists, both male and female, got in on the action, too:
So if my husband owns a BB gun, I should consider myself a lucky woman?

I know a lot of vets that would love to have that conversation with you in person. That is if you didn't bring your armed security & your lawyers. What an ass, stooping to belittling people you know nothing about from the safety of your protected homes & offices. #Veterans #KAG

I question your sample size.
Exactly how many have you inspected? What is your confidence interval? This is just shoddy science.

He based this assertion on evidence he exhumed in Capone’s vault.

So are 70 year old dudes taking shirtless bathroom selfies.

Ouch. That last one will especially leave a mark.
Think before you tweet next time, Geraldo. Think. 😉
