Anti-gun activist and MSNBC host Rachel Maddow used a recent video of Ted Cruz to give her viewers a proper lesson about firearms.
Eager to point out a flub in a satirical video titled, “Making Manchine-Gun Bacon with Ted Cruz,” produced by IJ Review, Maddow took the presidential nominee to task for calling an AR-15 rifle by the wrong name.
To begin the video, Cruz said, “In Texas, we cook bacon a little differently than most folks.”
After firing several rounds with the meat wrapped around the barrel, Cruz had a taste.
“Mmmmm, machine-gun bacon,” he declared.
The video delighted meat and gun-lovers from Texas to Alaska, as they enjoyed the lighthearted video for what it was – a spoof on a Tea Party stereotype.
But, leave it to Maddow to try and suck the fun right out of it.
“It’s kind of obvious this isn’t a machine gun,” Maddow said.
Technically, the liberal lady might be correct, but it won’t sway minds on either side of the political aisle.
Any news on whether Ted Cruz’s “machine gun bacon” video is backfiring with gun nuts because it’s not a machine gun? pic.twitter.com/JGCAYB3ntz

Sorry, it’s not “backfiring.”
This pro-gun guy, seems to get as upset as the “nuts” get:
But, many anti-Second Amendment activists praised Maddow and slammed Cruz’s “disturbing” video:
@foxandfriends Its official!! America has lost its mind….

Otherwise, the video is still getting high approval from most real Second Amendment supporters and gun enthusiasts.
