Like clockwork, whenever a mass shooting is carried out by someone using an AR-15 it immediately becomes a liberal media firestorm. The media doesn’t really know what an AR-15 is or what makes it unique or what it’s used for. They just know it looks scary, makes loud noises, and kills people. So, it’s gotta go!
Unfortunately, many Americans feel the need to exploit tragedies like the one in Florida to make a name for themselves or get attention. That seems to be exactly what one man did when he posted a video of himself destroying his AR-15. Why? Who knows.
From Conservative Tribune:
In the wake of the Parkland shooting, one AR-15 owner went massively viral by “destroying” his gun in response. However, our gun expert looked at what he did to it and noticed something the media should have looked at before reporting the story.
“Scott Pappalardo owned his AR-15 rifle for more than 30 years,” ABC News reported on its Facebook page. “He even has a Second Amendment tattoo on his arm.
If you haven’t seen the video you can check it out below.
However, a lot of gun owners noticed something a little off about the video.
Did you catch it?
Here’s what a former infantryman had to say about it.
Harris, a former infantryman who has extensive experience in weapons, says that if Pappalardo thought he was really destroying the weapon, he did it so ineptly one could argue he probably shouldn’t have owned it in the first place.
“He only sliced the barrel,” Harris said. “Those are less than $100 and literally screw into the upper part of the receiver.”
To put that into context, low-end AR rifles start at $500 minimum and can go up to several thousand dollars.
“It’s like throwing a tire into the garbage and declaring that you’ve destroyed an entire car.”
Basically, this gun is not destroyed and it’s possible this guy was just looking for attention. It’s possible he destroyed the gun off camera but it definitely looks a little fishy.
Apparently, this guy thinks that the AR-15 is the reason that people were killed in Florida. In reality, that gun has existed for a long time. The gun has been around since the 1960s. How come school shootings just started happening more frequently the past decade? Could it be possible that something else is going on? Mental health. Destruction of the nuclear family. Kids desensitized to violence. There are a million other factors. And yet, Democrats want to pretend that this is a black and white issue.
You know why?
Come on. We all know why. It’s because liberals dream of someday getting rid of the 2nd Amendment. They don’t even really try to hide it anymore. Clearly, they are trying to slowly chip away until they have people convinced that we don’t need that amendment anymore. Some liberals get mad when you bring that up. But, it’s the truth.
Don’t trust them.
