If Igor Volsky clutched his pearls any tighter he might hurt himself …
.@AdamKinzinger won't ban AR-15s b/c he likes shooting them.
Since 2007, at least 173 people have been killed in mass shootings w/ AR-15s pic.twitter.com/kFG14lAs6P

WHAT?! SOMEONE LIKES SHOOTING THE AR-15!???
So many KILLED in 11 years … wait, what?
If you do the math (we know, math is a real bummer), you’re looking at 15 people a year, or 1.25 people a month. We don’t even want to think about what .25 of a person actually looks like.
But c’mon, more people are killed by Tide Pods than an AR-15.
More than 15,000 people have been killed by knives during that same time. https://t.co/wN3zt4x3qi

Oh yeah, and lots and lots of people have been knifed to death.
Or beaten to death.
Or blown up.
But hey, let’s focus on ONE gun because we think it’s especially evil and scary.
If you want to scare people about something, pointing out that it kills about as many people a year as vending machines falling on them is perhaps not the best tactic.

Holy crap! 1.25 people are killed by vending machines every month?!
Clearly, we need some common sense vending machine control.
And the high capacity vending machines are frequently stocked with items that are known to contribute to diabetes and heart disease.
The two biggest killers in the country.

But there have been 874 mass shootings, how can only 173 be dead?
— Botty McBotface (@JammieWF) March 2, 2018
Because other evil guns were involved BUT they don’t know the names of those guns so they focus on the AR-15.
They saw it in a movie once or something. *shrug*
1,110 people were killed by automobiles in his home state of Illinois LAST YEAR.
But, please, keep talking about scary-looking rifles.

Minivans will be the end of civilization as we know it. Mark our words.
And 700 people have died in lawnmower accidents. I don't see you getting your romphim in a bunch over lawn mowers.

Not sure Democrats could necessarily run on common sense lawn mower control, but anything is possible.
