Virginia Del. Joe Morrissey, a Democrat in the Virginia General Assembly, is pushing for stricter gun laws in the state of Virginia.

In order illustrate a point, Morrissey brings an AK style rifle into the assembly to demonstrate the types of guns he would like to outlaw.

In true fashion of someone who is not educated about guns, Morrissey kept his finger on the trigger during his presentation. Only after a Republican delegate corrected him on how to hold the firearm did Morrissey then assure everyone that the gun was unloaded (although he did no safety check in front of the other delegates to ease their fears).

It’s somewhat disconcerting that the people who want to outlaw guns the most have absolutely no idea how they work or how to handle them.
