No serious. Last night CNN broke the news that the Navy Yard shooter used an AR-15 shotgun.
We must ban this weapon that has already been banned by reason of Not Existing.
I don’t know, would this be a good stunt? If Republicans actually passed a bill to ban the weapon that doesn’t exist in order to embarrass the media?
Piers Morgan’s entire show was dedicated to the proposition that an AR-15 (whether of the rifle or shotgun variation) was used in the killings. Indeed, one might say that his entire life has been dedicated to this proposition.
Except it wasn’t:
FBI Washington field office just confirmed gunman was NOT armed with AR15. Spokesperson says 1 shotgun and 2 pistols recovered

Yesterday #BuzzfeedAndrewKazcinsky baited the NRA by noting they weren’t commenting when facts were still unknown.
I dunno. Seems like a wise principle. Perhaps more of the Scolding Teacher Media would do well to follow their example.
