According to authorities, the gunman who killed five people and injured more used a legally purchased pump-action shotgun during his rampage. And right on cue, the mainstream media gun experts were on the job:
.@PeteWilliamsNBC on the weapon used in the newsroom shooting: a shotgun is like a backwards funnel, you don’t have to have direct aim to hurt a lot of people. It was purchased legally. #AMR

A “backwards funnel”?
This isn’t actually true. https://t.co/1lwQS8WyFd

You'd think after self-owning themselves SO HARD every time they try to talk about guns, the media would've come up with a style guide so they could at least get the most basic terms correct.

And have to deviate from the Preferred Talking Points? NEVER!
Another entirely misleading statement put out not to educate, but to propagandize. This is getting out of hand. If you don’t know what you’re talking about then go educate yourself before you try to “educate” others. https://t.co/WE4vWpGtzg

If the shooter used buckshot or birdshot then there’s spread…but this backwards funnel thing is just funny and is the new fully semi-automatic. https://t.co/EWgLwNo2la

Another banner day for the media.
Why are journalists so willfully ignorant about firearms? https://t.co/dKpRUk2HJ2
— Charles Auer (@hyperfocal) June 29, 2018
Because the survival of the liberal narrative depends on it?
That is not how shotguns work. Like at all. Ask Joe Biden. https://t.co/ZgdSpuX2HM

And don’t forget about then VP Biden’s gun safety tip:
“I did one of these town-hall meetings on the Internet and one guy said, “Well, what happens when the end days come? What happens when there’s the earthquake? I live in California, and I have to protect myself.” I said, “Well, you know, my shotgun will do better for you than your AR-15, because you want to keep someone away from your house, just fire the shotgun through the door.”
What could possibly go wrong?
