NY Daily News writer explains why AR-15s are scary and evil (but can't be bothered with facts)

Will the New York Daily News blame the NRA for this dude looking foolish?

The Daily News’ Gersh Kuntzman writes:

One day after 49 people were killed in the Orlando shooting, I traveled to Philadelphia to better understand the firepower of military-style assault weapons and, hopefully, explain their appeal to gun lovers.

Many gun shops turned down our request to fire and discuss the AR-15, a style of tactical machine gun popular with mass killers such as San Bernardino terrorist Syed Farook and Orlando terrorist Omar Mateen.

But Frank Stelmach of Double Tap Shooting Range and Gun Shop invited me, videographer Michael Sheridan and reporter Adam Shrier to come down. Stelmach is not like many gun lovers. He admires his weaponry, yes, and has difficulty explaining why law-abiding citizens need a gun that can empty a 40-round clip in less than five seconds. But he also hates the idea that “bad people” get a hold of a gun like this and use it to kill without difficulty.

Yeah, it’s just so unlike “many gun lovers” to be concerned about “bad people.”

Who does this guy think he is? One thing’s for sure: Plenty of tweeters aren’t very impressed.

Oh, and did we mention, he also has no idea what he’s talking about? In addition to failing to note that Mateen didn’t actually use an AR-15 to carry out his attack:

Kuntzman also lied (or was just completely wrong) about the AR-15’s capabilities:

In fully what mode, now?

Guns aren’t for everyone, and if they’re not for you, that’s fine. But is it too much to ask that if you’re going to write about guns, you make sure you’ve got all your facts straight?
