CNN anchor Don Lemon on Monday made an impassioned plea for more stringent restrictions on assault weapons like the one used by Adam Lanza in last week's massacre at Sandy Hook Elementary in Newtown, Conn.
"Who needs an assault rifle to go hunting?" Lemon said during a broadcast on the cable news network. "You can't even use the prey that you kill with an assault rifle if you indeed do it. No one needs an assault rifle to go out and shoot a deer. No one needs an assault rifle that's capable of shooting 10, 20, 30 rounds off at the same time to shoot a duck or to shoot quail. It does not make sense."
