USA Today: Chainsaw Bayonet Could be Added to AR Rifle

USA Today published a video on Twitter that claimed that a chainsaw bayonet could be attached to an existing AR rifle.

The rifle was the model used in the recent mass shooting at a Texas church that killed more than two dozen people.

After becoming the butt of countless jokes, USA Today later admitted [4] that the mass shooter did not use a chainsaw bayonet in his attack, but maintained it could be a gun attachment.

Critics pointed out that a chainsaw bayonet is something in Hollywood movies, and is not used by rifle owners.
