When a Fox News host does something right, I am all for giving them lots of applause. Gretchen Carlson is my "Fox News Heroine of the Day" today, because she's standing firm on her opposition to AR-15s, in spite of the abuse she's taking from ammosexuals.

On her show Wednesday, she doubled down on her opposition to those instruments of death, in spite of vicious viewer feedback.

“And of course, there were a lot worse ones with tons of F-bombs and worse than that even,” Carlson shrugged. “Intolerance is no doubt why politicians sometimes don’t say what they really think.”

“But could that now be changing?” she asked, pointing out that Republicans like Donald Trump, Rob Portman and Bob Dole had all expressed an openness to new gun restrictions.

“Maybe it’s time for more of us to start getting real and try to come together to actually get things done,” the Fox News host concluded.

Ammosexual Twitter has been unkind too. She evidently only replies to the ones that don't have f-bombs, so these are pretty tame by ammosexual standards. But still...

Good for her. She is saying an incredibly unpopular thing on the Republican News Network, but it's the right thing. Keep standing firm, Gretchen.
