Larry King’s career may be longer than Kyle Kashuv has even been alive but the TV and radio host seemed to need a refresher on his American history.
The former CNN anchor told TMZ on Wednesday that the “poorly written” Second Amendment should definitely be repealed.
According to TMZ:
Larry says he’s completely on board, adding that the antiquated provision needs to be rewritten due to unclear language … and also, because it’s “real” purpose is moot now.
He backs a widely discussed theory that the Second Amendment was pushed for by Southern senators who simply wanted to fend off potential slave uprisings. How about that?
Fact is … there was a move back then to keep guns away from slaves, but it’s actually an anti-gun control issue and not an issue about repealing the Second Amendment.
King’s fact-check was delivered courtesy of Kyle Kashuv, the conservative student from Stoneman Douglas High School in Florida, who has been consistently defending the Constitution and the Second Amendment in the face of a media frenzy on gun control.
Uhm… no. It wasn’t. And Mr. King worked for CNN, right? Go figure. https://t.co/IWCPD5H0Hm

Kashuv’s slam dunk set off a wave of applause for the teen and revealed a recurring theme about the 84-year-old King.
Be proud Kyle you are more educated about our constitution than this supposed learned man

Well that’s a new one, very different than the normal hunting reasoning.

I’m convinced liberals would make good taffy-pullers.

King should know. I think he was at the Battle of Gettysburg. 😁😂😂

I guess he thinks because he was there, he’s got all the facts.

He was around when it was written, he must have forgotten. Honestly, there’s so much wrong with that statement…🤣
