Okay, the other reason for this post is to glom the pic above. I especially like the gun with the “BANG!” banner sticking out of the barrel, because that reminds me of the WWF bit that “Stone Cold” Steve Austin did with Vince McMahon back in 1998:
“McMahon 3:16 says you just pissed your pants”. Ya just can’t beat the classics.
Much like the Obamedia stumbled down the steps and pooped their pants of firearm ignorance yet again. Pistol, shotgun, squirtgun, raygun, rifle, it doesn’t matter, because they’re all AR-15s to the gun-grabbers:
Newsweek screamed, “ORLANDO SHOOTING PUTS SPOTLIGHT ON AR-15 RIFLE.”
Judd Legume of Think Progress squeaked, “The NRA’s Love Affair With The AR-15, Weapon Of Choice For Mass Murderers, In Twenty-Two Tweets.”
Always wrong Christopher Ingraham of the Washington Post whined, “The gun used in the Orlando shooting is becoming mass shooters’ weapon of choice.”
There’s just one problem, the wrestling saying equivalent of which is not knowing the difference between a wristlock and a wristwatch:
The rifle used by the Islami[c] terrorist in Orlando was instead a Sig Sauer MCX carbine.…
….a modular, multi-caliber (able to swap to different calibers, including 5.56 NATO, 300 BLK, and 7.62×39) rifle system that sometimes utilizes STANAG magazines common to more than sixty different firearms, but otherwise has no major parts that interface with AR-15s in any way, shape or form.
This of course, will make no difference at all to the anti-gun politimedia, who don’t particularly care about factual accuracy and who likely wouldn’t be able to tell an AR-15 from a toaster oven if their lives depended on it.
And, of course, they don’t have to care, because (1) they want ALL guns confiscated from law-abiding Americans in blatant violation of the Second Amendment, and (2) they have private security details and bodyguards anyway that take care of that sort of thing for them.
Not that the Sig Sauer MCX carbine is any less deadly than the AR-15, obviously. But the AR-15 is much better known, and if the Obamedia can play up that that was Omar Mateen’s primary weapon of choice, the Orlando atrocity can be tagged to it, and gin up renewed public support for gun-grabbing in general. Or so goes the standard Obamedia plan.
And Muslim-control, which would be a much more effective and direct remedy to the real problem? That’s “Islamophobic”, of course.
The anti-gun press may be “praying for Orlando,” but theirs has nothing to do with the victims or their families.
