As Twitchy reported over the weekend, gun control activists led by David Hogg converged on the NRA’s headquarters in Virginia for a protest. It provided an opportunity for “person on the street” interviews, and these did not fail to deliver epic facepalms:
SAVE THE BEST FOR LAST: This one #gun-grabbing #protestor thinks THAT YOU SHOULD NOT BE ABLE TO #DEFEND YOUR LIFE if an #intruder breaks into your house. The #NRA and our 6 million members know better than this and we will never stop fighting for the #2A! #EmptyHQ #FreeIceCream pic.twitter.com/SYWWztnl6Z

Is that the kind that takes the chainsaw bayonet modification?
This was my favorite interview by far. Hard to keep a straight face. https://t.co/hNVBDPpMm7

OMG! I had to watch this twice to make sure I heard them right… so they don't think I should defend myself from someone breaking in my home… and then a guy who should know about guns thinks FULLY SEMI AUTOMATIC GUNS should be banned!! FULLY SEMI AUTOMATIC..I have a headache!! https://t.co/wJxKXWF2Rz

Simply amazing. And of course there was the obligatory hypocrisy:
Today, @davidhogg111 (with armed security) and a bunch of gun-grabbing activists protested our empty HQ, and there were some interesting people there. Our social team chatted up the crowd and ended the day with ice cream paid for by @Everytown! Stay tuned for video interviews! pic.twitter.com/kIhcWZ28dJ
