Once again the same-stream Progressive media’s got it wrong and as usual the anti-gunners swallow every drop of the pabulum that’s being spoon fed to the American public:
- “AR-15 Rifle Used in Orlando Massacre Has Bloody Pedigree,” an NBC News headline reads.
- “Orlando Shooting Puts Spotlight on AR-15 Rifle,” Newsweek declared.
- The Washington Post offered, “The history of the AR-15, the weapon that had a hand in the United States’ worst mass shooting.”
The radical Islamic terrorist didn’t actually use an AR-15 to carry out the insidious at a gay nightclub that left 49 people dead and dozens more injured. He was armed with a Sig Sauer MCX carbine.
Orlando Police Chief John Mina initially described the weapon as an “AR-15-style assault rifle” but press outlets ran with the classification, dropping “style” from the description. This of course, will make no difference at all to the polimedia, 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.
