We’ve had a week of the media beclowning itself by claiming the gay Muslim Democrat terrorist used an AR-15 during his slaughter in Orlando. Better late than never, we suppose. If only they concentrated on Muslim terror rather than guns they wouldn’t be humiliating themselves so much.
In a story June 13 about a mass shooting at a nightclub in Orlando, The Associated Press reported erroneously the precise type of weapon used by the shooter. The gunman was armed with a Sig Sauer MCX assault rifle, not an AR-15, which is a similar model.
If only others would follow their lead.
An image and three words make up the Boston Globe’s front page Thursday: An AR-15 and the words “Make It Stop.”
In Thursday’s striking front page editorial, the newspaper displays an assault rifle, which takes up the entirety of the front cover.
To the right of the picture of the gun are the words, “Make It Stop” with the word “Stop” in red lettering. The Boston newspaper displays the gun, and a sample bullet entry, at their actual sizes.
The minimalist image garnered attention on Wednesday night when Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren tweeted it out.
“This is the cover of the @BostonGlobe tomorrow – & they are 100% correct,” Warren said in the tweet.
Heres a so-called “reporter” continuing to spread fictions:
Family of AR-15 inventor Eugene Stoner says he would be "horrified." He never intended civilian use. https://t.co/9Q6V2oWjw0

Claiming the Sig MCX is the same as an AR-15 is like claiming a Ford Taurus and Honda Accord are the same.

Despite the lies and fraud by the Democrats and the media (but we repeat ourselves) they unwittingly are helping sales.

Omar Mateen was NOT on the "no fly List." He was NOT on the "terror watch list." He did NOT use an AR15.

And the beclowning continues apace:
