In yesterday’s shooting at a Maryland newspaper, the killer used a 12-gauge shotgun. This was very disappointing to ghoulish liberals who were hoping the victims were gunned down with an AR-15 to help push their efforts to ban all semi-automatic firearms. Shotguns are generally pump-action and liberals have yet to pounce on these weapons, but after some careful consideration, NBC came up with a way to demonize them. According to the liberal news network, shotguns are reverse funnels of death that require no skill to use, so obviously they must go too.
Here’s dumb tweet, not-so-coincidentally enough from a dumb person:

It should be noted that Pete Williams is NBC Supreme Court correspondent and not their resident gun expert, though you probably figured that out from the tweet. The narrative they are trying to push is that shotguns are so easy to use that people can just aim them in any direction and kill lots of people. This is of course pure bullshit, but it’s not like the leftist news has ever gotten anything about guns right.
As someone who owns and has fired many shotguns, I can tell you that aiming them is important if you are interested in hitting your target. There are obviously different types of chokes you can use to create a wider spread, but you still have to be on target or it doesn’t matter. Also, in the case of a 12-gauge, those muthas kick like a mule. The average person probably wouldn’t enjoy firing one of these and I’ve seen some pretty hilarious reactions from first-time shooters. The point is, shotguns aren’t “idiot-proof” killing machines that anyone can pick up and use with ease.
Andrea Mitchell attributes this information to Pete Williams, but I can’t figure out where he said it. He pretty much doesn’t use Twitter so it didn’t come from there. I searched NBC’s website but there is nothing about Williams chiming in on shotguns. He must have just whispered it to her in the break room, maybe just to f*ck with her.
Williams probably told Mitchell that shotguns are reverse funnels that don’t require aiming, just to see if she’d tweet out this false information. I have a feeling Williams is laughing his ass off right now. Good one, Petey.
What this tweet shows however is the real intent behind the liberal euphemistic “gun safety” push. They say they only want to get rid of AR-15s because they are designed to kill as many people as fast as possible, but they have no problem with shotguns. Now, a shotgun was used in a mass shooting so suddenly those innocuous weapons are now reverse funnels of death, but don’t worry, they don’t have a problem with revolvers. That is until one is used in a mass shooting and then revolvers will become “rotating cylinders of murder” and they will have to be banned as well.
