Far-Left Rep. Will Keep Calling the AR-15 an Assault Rifle Knowing It’s a lie


No one is allowed to correct the far-left, even when they lie about the facts. The left doesn’t care about all the system failures at Stoneman or the fact that Barack Obama did nothing that would stop school shootings. They also don’t want to be told they can’t lie.

Far-left Rep. Ted Lieu, D-Calif., was confronted for his use of the term “assault rifle”. He keeps calling the AR-15 an assault rifle.

A number of people explained that it’s a regular semi-automatic rifle. It seemed to infuriate him.

“How quaint that some folks are more concerned about kids speaking respectfully than the fact that 17 kids were slaughtered with an assault rifle,” he said in a tweet.

He tweeted that he will call it that even though it’s not.

Let’s Talk About Peter Wang Instead

The left is also not talking about Peter Wang. That is the sorry state of affairs we see ourselves in today.

The sad story of a courageous American is what really deserves our time.

The AR-15 is an assault rifle, assault weapon. There’s no doubt about it. What’s it used for-hunting? Please. It has one purpose only, and that’s to end the life of another human being. It is an assault weapon. However you want to categorize it, or anyone else, is pointless and playing semantics. How about some real common sense changes to our current gun laws to make sure that crazy people can’t get their hands on these weapons (or any for that matter). This has been going on for far too long.

Hey Con, looks like you and Ted Lieu need a little education, groups wanting to ban AR-15-style rifles have for years purposely spread misinformation about these firearms to aid their cause,the AR in “AR-15” rifle stands for Armalite rifle, after the company that developed it in the 1950s. “AR” does NOT stand for “assault rifle” or “automatic rifle.” an assault rifle is fully automatic — a machine gun. Automatic firearms have been severely restricted from civilian ownership since 1934.,The gun control advocates, the media are fixated on the idea that AR-15s are “military weapons” or “weapons of war” that “have no place on the street.” Again and again we hear that they’re not suitable for hunting, again depending on the caliber you can hunt with them, one last point that the gun grabbers don’t get, the 2nd amendment is not and never was about hunting !
