The shooting at a high school in Santa Fe, Texas left several people dead and many more injured. The pro-gun control crowd almost immediately sprang into action after the terrible news broke, slamming the NRA while also blaming the AR-15 “assault weapon” for the horrible crime:
Las Vegas: AR-15
Sandy Hook: AR-15
Umpqua CC: AR-15
Waffle House: AR-15
Texas Church: AR-15
San Bernardino: AR-15
Santa Fe High School: AR-15

In Texas you have to be 18 to buy an AR15 and 21 to buy a handgun. The Santa Fe HS shooter had one of each but was only 17.

Er, there are just some problems with that:
Gov. Abbott just announced law enforcement recovered two guns from the Sante Fe shooter. One was a shotgun. The other was a .38 caliber revolver.

Gov Abbott: 2 others being interviewed other than shooter.
Shotgun and .38 revolver were weapons used; appear to have been taken from father.

There goes another attempted narrative!
Those are the two firearms gun control zealots promise they will never try to ban: a shotgun, the favorite home defense weapon of Joe Biden, and a pistol that is not "semi-automatic." https://t.co/EbRRNY18HU

Liberals will still blame the NRA anyway.
Santa Fe: Shotgun and .38, NOT an AR-15 as you stated. Facts matter.
Another Fact: Handguns are used in the vast majority of murders in the US https://t.co/R0txQiqn0U

In the same frame of time, there have been more than 1500 people shot in the city of Chicago alone almost exclusively with handguns. https://t.co/HYYcDTaKrj

The gun control crowd’s ability to pick and choose only things that are helpful to the liberal political agenda (whether true or totally fabricated) is truly amazing.
