Accuracy in Media

Gun owners who were interviewed pointed out that the much-maligned AR-15 rifle cannot bring down a deer, which points out how it is a weapon, but not a machine gun as the liberal media portrays it. Read the first three paragraphs of the ABC News article for yourself:

The Orlando nightclub shooter’s use of a legally purchased AR-15-type rifle, which President Barack Obama likened to “weapons of war,” has rekindled the debate about the sale and use of a civilian gun model often associated with the military.

Shooter Omar Mateen had two guns on him Sunday when he opened fire in the Pulse nightclub: a Glock 9 mm handgun and a Sig Sauer MCX .223-caliber rifle, which the U.S. Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives classified as an AR-type rifle.

Though gun enthusiasts are quick to note that the Sig MCX is not exactly the same as an AR-15, the latter is one of the most common versions of a weapon that’s used by both civilians and the military. TheNational Rifle Association even called it “America’s most popular rifle” in a blog post on its website earlier this year.
