Ann Wagner Owns Way More Guns Than Other RNC Chair Candidates (VIDEO)

Views

Republican National Committee chair candidate Ann Wagner blew away the competition when Grover Norquist asked each candidate at today’s debate how many guns they own.

“About 16,” replied Wagner, whose family actually just got a new gun case for Christmas.Current RNC Chairman Michael Steele and Mario Cino don’t own any guys. Reince Priebus has five, and Saul Anuzis said he feels “very inadequate” owning just four.

The Wagner family gun case contains “everything from pistols and a Glock, to shotguns, rifles, and my son, who’s on the combat weapons team at West Point, has an assault rifle,” Wagner said. Let’s just hope the guns aren’t stored anywhere near the kitchen table, which Wagner revealed earlier in the debate as her favorite bar.
