MSNBC’s Joe Scarborough this morning warned the Republican party not to defend high capacity handguns or  “assault rifles” after the horrific school shooting in Connecticut.

“Do they want to be seen two years from now which they will, four years from now as the party of glocks, the party of bushmasters, the party of combat style military weapons, rapid fire magazine clips. If they want to go around and debate that the next four years, good luck,” Scarborough said seriously.

He added, “If we’re having to defend Glocks, 10 millimeter Glocks, Bushmasters — assault styled weapons, we will lose.”
