‘I Can Read With The Best Of Them’: Gun Debate Gets Testy On ‘Outnumbered’

Radio host David Webb squared off with Fox News contributor Jessica Tarlov during a heated “Outnumbered” segment on gun control Tuesday.

“One at a time,” co-host Melissa Francis said as the two talked over each other.

Webb began the conversation, responding to a statement from Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell about the next steps in the gun control fight in Congress.

“We’ve heard this from Mitch McConnell before. I don’t like the aftermath of shootings and you get the typical response of all the statements being made but how many times do you actually get the follow-through action?” Webb asked. “We need to improve law enforcement’s ability to communicate information. That will do more. We need to do this and we also need to respect the Constitution and where it stands on Americans’ rights so their rights are not impeded.”

Tarlov responded by suggesting a move toward red flag laws and an assault weapons ban. “The assault weapons ban seems like the most obvious place to go. Police chiefs from major cities all over the country released a letter  … ”

“These are not assault weapons, though,” Webb interrupted. “They’re a single shot, one pull at the trigger, no, this is a problem.

“An AR-15?” Tarlov asked. “It’s not the gun that’s being used here and in Dayton?”

“One at a time,” Francis interjected. “Let her finish.”
