NRATV host suggests Border Patrol stop showing "restraint" and respond to thrown rocks the same way they would to a firearm

NRATV's Grant Stinchfield: "I think many of these people have great faith that the U.S. government will show restraint here. But I’m not sure they should, because once you start throwing rocks, as the president said, that should be considered like a firearm"

GRANT STINCHFIELD (HOST): I may be -- maybe some will call me naive that I believe that maybe some of the [migrant caravan] leaders that are pushing this, and I believe it’s well orchestrated, don’t want to see the women and children injured. As opposed to the terrorists, I really don’t think they care if the women and kids are blown up inside a hospital with all the people there as well. But they do want the picture and they do not care about putting them in harm's way and the possibility that they could be hurt. I think many of these people have great faith that the U.S. government will show restraint here. But I’m not sure they should, because once you start throwing rocks, as the president said, that should be considered like a firearm. And throwing rocks is a dangerous act against a federal agent and it has to be met with the hand of the law. There is no doubt in my mind about that. And I think they’re underestimating the fortitude of President Trump and his administration.
