Actress Stacey Dash on Monday suggested that the victims of the terrorist attack at a gay nightclub in Orlando should have been armed with Glock handguns so that they could "take out" the shooter, who was firing an assault-style rifle.

Following the massacre of 49 people at the Pulse nightclub, WTTG's Holly Morris asked if the shooting had made Dash rethink her position on gun rights.

"No, it does not it all," Dash insisted. "In fact, it makes me think, you know, had more people been educated and informed about carrying a gun, you would have had more good guys in the room who could have stopped this from happening."

"But he had a semi-automatic weapon," Morris noted.

"You can still take out a guy with, you know, a Glock," Dash replied. "You don't have to have a big huge gun to take the guy down."

"I would say -- some would say that that's reality we're seeing reality today," Morris said, appearing slightly shocked. "That might make you waver on your opinion. But it makes you more staunch."

"Yes, it does," the actress agreed.
