Can you spot the fatal flaw in Rep. Keith Ellison’s dumb meme on guns?

“Practically identical,” he says.
Here’s Bob Owens from our sister publication Bearing Arms to set him straight:

And he’s the guy who votes on defense appropriations? Shouldn’t he have a basic understanding of the differences between a weapon approved for civilian use and one used by our military?

So if they look the same they must BE the same? I guess anyone who looks like a Muslim terrorist must BE one. https://t.co/9RBnpC9j56

They might look identical but they aren’t even remotely similar in function. STOP LYING, FFS. https://t.co/PKKnaSAFuO
