Newsweek writer thinks AR-15 owners are mass murders

Nina Burleigh, a writer for the magazine Newsweek, posted a tweet yesterday supporting the extreme gun control measures California Congressman Eric Swalwell proposed in an op-ed for USA Today.

In her tweet, she writes, “Almost every single person I’ve ever heard of with an AR-15 has been a mass murderer. Based on Twitter sample the rest of them are scarily paranoid. Get on the right side of history

As you can imagine, people let her have it.

Nina might also want to check out some crime statistics before tweeting stupid opinions. Handguns are actually used in more crimes than the AR-15.

Gun owners might be paranoid, but why shouldn’t they be when you have a congressmen suggesting the government nuke them if they won’t voluntarily give up their rightfully owned weapons?
