Once again, the dishonest media — and President Obama — is using deception to try to ban guns and strip us of our 2nd amendment rights.
Immediately after the dreadful shooting the dishonest media — and President Obama — stated that the gunman used an "assault rifle" to murder the cops. They say this, of course, to build public resentment over guns so they can eventually ban them.
First of all, the term "assault rifle" is a term cooked up by anti-gun people. It's a nonsensical term that in reality does not exist. The "AR" in the AR-15 gun model stands for "ArmaLite", not "assault rifle".
So all the crowing about "assault rifles should be banned" is a load of crap. An AR-15 is not a "military grade" weapon (another nonsensical term), and it is not an "assault rifle". It is a .22 caliber rifle, which has less stopping power than even a 9mm handgun.
Now, coming back to the Dallas shooter, and the dishonest media's — and President Obama's — claim about the shooter using an "assault rifle".
The rifle he used has a standard wood stock — not the "scary-evil" black frame of an AR-15.
The rifle he used has an angled grip — not the "scary-evil" pistol grip of an AR-15.
The rifle he used has a fixed 10-round magazine — not the detachable magazine of an AR-15.
I write those "scary-evil" parts about the AR-15 to demonstrate how ludicrous all the media hype is about the AR-15. (Because their intent is to ban guns, not to inform the public of facts.)
