As we’ve observed this week, gun control advocates have reacted to a deadly school shooting in Parkland, Fla., by blaming 1) the NRA, and 2) the AR-15 specifically. If they can’t confiscate all the guns, they at least want the AR-15 banned, no question.

The Washington State Attorney General’s Office did its part for the cause Friday by noting that in Washington, an 18-year-old can walk out of Cabela’s in minutes carrying a brand new AR-15.

Well, the tweet says “Fact,” so it must be true, right?

Whoever wrote the tweet included hashtags for Washington SB 5444, “Concerning enhanced background checks and licensure for assault weapons and large capacity magazines.”

And define “assault weapon” and “large capacity magazine” while you’re at it.

We’re not the only ones who doubted this “fact.”
