George Takei tries to mock gun owners and inadvertently makes the case for owning an AR-15

Liberal actor George Takei tried to mock gun owners, but many on social media noted that he had inadvertently made the argument in support of AR-15 ownership.

Takei made the comment in the wake of the horrific Uvalde elementary school massacre and the Russian invasion of Ukraine.

"Crazy thought, but those 20 million AR-15s now in this country could sure arm a lot of Ukrainians," tweeted Takei.

The "Star Trek" icon garnered a lot of retweets and likes in support of his supposition, but gun owners and others supporters of the Second Amendment noticed that he had undermined his own argument for gun control.

"In this episode, George Takei learns about the usefulness of an armed populace against foreign or domestic oppression," responded journalist Tony Kinnett.

"So...you're saying that a rifle could be used in a self defense situation against a tyrannical government? That's actually brilliant. Only if the Founding Fathers had thought of that, and enshrined it in some sort of document," read another response with more than 1k likes.

"Crazy thought, Americans should have the same right and ability to protect themselves that Ukrainians do," replied comedian Tim Young.

Not only was Takei's point taken up by conservatives, but some liberals were incensed that he hadn't thought it through.

"Why are people on this site advocating for a flood of untraceable weapons to Ukraine? Do you understand where this will lead?! Let’s not export our unregulated gun violence to other countries," read one tweet. "For f***’s sake."

Takei has been very vocal about his leftist beliefs and he has previously offended conservatives with his ill considered tweets. In one instance from June 2017 the actor opined that the universe was dealing a lesson in social justice when a lawmaker was treated by a gay nurse after being shot in the heinous baseball field attack on Republicans.
