September 16, 2013 at CNN:
CAROL COSTELLO: This seems so unusual to me that a gunman could create this kind of havoc at a U.S. military facility. Have you ever heard of it happening before, Brian?
BRIAN TODD: Well, we did have the Fort Hood shooting in 2009.
While the Navy Yard assault was still on-going, some “source” told reporters the shooter had an AR-15. CNN’s Musket Morgan and a host of other pro-gun-controllers predictably jumped right on the wagon.
One has to wonder if they have these AR-15 stories pre-written, like celebrity obituaries. In any case, it turns out they were wrong.
Will they retract? ::snort:: One of them took a page from Shrillary “What difference does it make?” Clinton:
“Does it really matter what kind of gun was used? The people are just as dead regardless.”
Hmm … it seemed to matter when you thought you could use it to promote your gun control agenda.
Granted: Piers’ notation about Aurora and Sandy Hook were somewhat correct. Those shooters did carry semi-automatic rifles, though that particular gun malfunctioned during the Aurora incident.
But what about the SHOTGUNS? Huh? All THREE shooters had SHOTGUNS!
