CNN’s Piers Morgan brought former Denver Broncos quarterback John Elway onto his show to talk about the upcoming Super Bowl – and to answer Morgan’s inevitable questions on gun control.
“I’m still kind of waiting to hear both sides of it,” Elway said shortly in response. “I’m a gun owner and I’m a hunter and I enjoy that and I respect the Second Amendment.”
Morgan then asked if Elway believed that American citizens should own “military-style rifles that can pump out 100 bullets a minute.”
“I don’t own a machine gun,” Elway replied flatly, adding that he didn’t see why anyone would need to.
Elway added that he was “waiting to see” if the side that wanted to ban so called “assault rifles” would actually serve as a solution to mass shootings.
Elway endorsed Mitt Romney for president in 2012 and is the current Vice President of Operations for the Denver Broncos.
