NARRATIVE FAIL: Orlando Islamic Terrorist Did NOT Use An AR-15

by Bob Owens

The anti-gun politimedia wasted no time at all demonizing the most common rifle in the United States as being the real villain of the Islamic terrorist attack on Pulse nightclub in Orlando.

Newsweek screamed, “ORLANDO SHOOTING PUTS SPOTLIGHT ON AR-15 RIFLE.”

Judd Legume of Think Progress squeaked, “The NRA’s Love Affair With The AR-15, Weapon Of Choice For Mass Murderers, In 22 Tweets.”

Always wrong Christopher Ingraham of the Washington Post whined, “The gun used in the Orlando shooting is becoming mass shooters’ weapon of choice.”

Here’s the thing.

The rifle used by the Islamist terrorist in Orlando was not an AR-15.

The rifle used by the Islamist terrorist in Orlando was instead a Sig Sauer MCX carbine, a modular, multi-caliber (able to swap to different calibers, including 5.56 NATO, 300 BLK, and 7.62×39) rifle system that sometimes utilizes STANAG magazines common to more than 60 different firearms, but otherwise has no major parts that interface with AR-15s in any way, shape or form.

This of course, will make no difference at all to the anti-gun politimedia, who don’t particularly care about factual accuracy and who likely wouldn’t be able to tell an AR-15 from a toaster oven if their lives depended on it.

All the media cares about is that they’ve wrapped their anti-gun dreams on demonizing the most popular rifle sold in the United States, and they’re going to keep attacking it, whether or not it was used in any particular incident or not.

      I welcome being a target. Unlike where and who these whack jobs attack I am not a “gun free zone”. Better make your first shot into a crowd I’m in be me.

      • No gun free zone here either

        • Sock

          I have said this a thousand times: I would never sit idly by and let a harmless person, helpless, unarmed person be shot regardless of who they are.
          On the same token you will never catch me in very many places where I would need a gun to begin with. I carry a gun in case the crime decides to come to me.

    It astounds me that any sane person could express support for the progressive democratic agenda to open our borders and islamize our country. We have profoundly stupid statements from progressives across the spectrum denouncing the Orlando shooting as being caused by assault weapons, Christian hatred for gays and conservatives in general. It was caused by the Quar’an. This slaughter of homosexuals is directed by Allah. The words are there in the Quar’an. It is directed by shariah law. Our leaders are either profoundly stupid or deliberately intend to destroy America.

  • REM1875

    Over 100 people and no defense mounted?
    I am not in their shoes but I find that hard to believe.
    Somebody throw pool balls or attacking him with a pool cue? A beer bottle? Anything?

    Once upon a time kids would hash it out in behind the school with fisty cuffs and shake hands after it was over, now the fear of arrest and a permanent record has removed that and I can not say we are a better world for it.
    No defense mounted? SMH
    None?

      Queers are easy targets. Headline today: “Drag queen bartender: ‘we were fish in a barrel'”

      • Maybe they will now realize that people do not like the choices they make

    The Glock on the handgun side labeled as an AR-15 had me laughing for almost 5 minutes. Nice.

    No surprise. Queer-Rage. Angry queers are the most dangerous. I bet his dad raped him. Most Muslims are queer hypocrites. He’s Afghan. Afghanistan has the most fag dancing boys.

    Ex-wife’s bombshell claim: Club shooter was gay

    By Chris Perez and Joe Tacopino

    June 13, 2016

    The ex-wife of Orlando mass killer Omar Mateen claimed Monday that she believed he was homosexual — as it was revealed that he frequented the gay nightclub where he staged the nation’s worst massacre in modern times.

    Sitora Yusufiy, who was married to Mateen in 2009 for three months, made the shocking claim on Brazilian television station SBT Brazil.

    Her fiancé, Marco Dias, speaking in Portuguese on her behalf, said Yusufiy believed that Mateen had “gay tendencies” and that his father had called him gay in front of her. Dias also claimed “the FBI asked her not to tell this to the American media.”

    The bombshell came as a male former classmate of Omar Mateen said he had been asked out romantically by the mass killer, who reportedly was a virtual regular at the Pulse nightclub, having visited it more than a dozen times over the years.

    The former classmate said he would hang out with Mateen, hitting gay bars after attending class at Indian River Community College police academy in 2006 — and one time Mateen asked him out “romantically,” according to the Palm Beach Post.

    “We went to a few gay bars with him, and I was not out at the time, so I declined his offer,” the former classmate told the paper.

    The classmate told the paper he thought the killer, who pledged allegiance to ISIS before killing 49 at the gay nightclub Pulse, was gay and in the closet.

    The classmate’s claims came after reports emerged that Mateen frequented the club for years before Sunday’s massacre.

    “It’s the same guy,” Chris Callen, a drag queen who performs under the name Kristina McLaughlin, told the Canadian Press. “He’s been going to this bar for at least three years.”

    Callen’s husband, Ty Smith, recalled seeing a drunk Mateen being escorted from the club.

    “Sometimes he . . . would get so drunk he was loud and belligerent,” he told the Orlando Sentinel.

    At least four Pulse clubgoers remembered seeing Mateen at least a dozen times in the past. But authorities said they had no further information when asked about the sightings on Monday. NBC reported that the FBI was looking into his alleged club visits.

    “[He’d get] really, really drunk,” Smith told the Canadian Press. “He couldn’t drink when he was at home — around his wife, or family. His father was really strict . . . He used to bitch about it.”

    Callen and Smith said they both stopped speaking to Mateen when he threatened them with a knife, after someone made a joke about religion.

    “He ended up pulling a knife,” Callen explained. “He said if he ever messed with him again, you know how it’ll turn out.”

    They also shot down claims that Mateen had snapped after seeing two men kissing each other in public.

    “That’s bullcrap, right there. No offense. That’s straight-up crap. He’s been around us,” Smith said. “Some of those people did a little more than (kiss) outside the bar … He was partying with the people who supposedly drove him to do this?”

    Kevin West, another regular at Pulse, told the Los Angeles Times that Mateen used gay dating apps on a regular basis and even messaged him on a gay dating app, Jack’d.

    He even saw Mateen an hour before the shooting.

    “He walked directly past me. I said, ‘Hey,’ and he turned and said, ‘Hey,’ ” and nodded his head, recalled West. “I could tell by the eyes [it was him].”

    One Orlando man, who refused to be named, told MSNBC that he had seen photos of Mateen on several gay dating apps, including Grindr, Adam4Adam, and Jack’d. He claimed that at least two of the man’s friends had been contacted by Mateen on the apps in the past.

    “He was very creepy in his messages, and I blocked him immediately,” the man said.

    It’s time for a constitutional amendment: gun rights (or how about government-supplied guns?) for all Whites and L.A. Koreans.
