We do our best not to pick on Twitter “randos” and stick to the politicians and blue-check comedy writers no one’s heard of, but there are those tweets that either go viral or are so jaw-droppingly wrong we can’t help but write about them. Our story starts with a post by Rep. Thomas Massie of Kentucky.

But when you hunt you use those rifles that are made of wood that are less scary-looking than assault weapons with their grenade launchers and chainsaw bayonets.

Even better … you can hunt with an AR-15, which is perfectly legal to own and use. It’s up to you … and still will be in 2021.

OK, here’s where we get to the tweet where we feel like we should black out the name and set up an immediate intervention by Stephen Gutowski.

An animal … killed with a semi-automatic weapon … would be too full of shrapnel to eat.

We don’t think that’s going to help.

And Democrats seem so shocked that we want to pin them down on a definition of “assault weapon” before they start writing their confiscation executive orders.
