Meghan McCain is speaking out for gun rights — and raising eyebrows in the process. According to her latest Instagram post, The View co-host used part of the show’s summer hiatus to enjoy some time at a Wyoming gun range with husband Ben Domenech. The photos the Republican TV personality shared show her armed with a semi-automatic rifle. McCain also spoke about her passionate support for the Second Amendment, which she called a “true cornerstone of my conservative political beliefs.” She also shared that being a gun owner makes her feel like a “strong and empowered” woman, but noted the “gravity” of using firearms responsibly. “I grew up shooting guns in Arizona and shooting targets and clays is the only sport I’ve ever really enjoyed or been good at,” she wrote. “To do it successfully, you have to get complete control over your entire body while regulating your breathing. I have always found a very meditative and simplistic joy to the experience (especially doing it in nature). “As a woman I feel strong and empowered owning guns, knowing how to protect myself and my ability to fire different types of guns accurately,” she continued. “The Second Amendment is a true cornerstone of my conservative political beliefs. Without the right to keep and bear arms, the freedoms in this country we hold so dear would never have been won. There are millions of Americans just like me who are responsible gun owners who know a gun can be a force for great evil or good, depending on who wields it.” McCain’s post drew mixed reactions, with fellow gun owners thanking her for speaking up. But many — the majority of whom said they, too, support the Second Amendment — still called for bans on assault rifles. [full article]
