A U.S. law enforcement official said Monday that gunman Aaron Alexis unleashed a barrage of bullets using an AR-15, a rifle and a semi-automatic handgun. Authorities believed the AR-15 was used for most of the shooting, the official said. The news prompted Sen. Dianne Feinstein, one of the strongest proponents of a ban on assault weapons like the AR-15, to issue a statement the same day asking, “When will enough be enough?”
So who were these US Law enforcement officials? This is rank speculation on my part, I want to be clear: but the Administration has a certain amount invested in seeing his gun control agenda through. While it easily could have been a mistake, I do have to note:
- A lie will get halfway around the world before the truth can get its pants on.
- The media can be expected to parrot anything they can get their hands on in a mass shooting, and the shooter having an AR-15 comports with their agendas and biases.
- Regardless of the truth coming out now, people will continue to believe an AR-15 was involved, because they barely pay attention.
Which makes me wonder if those leaks about the AR-15 weren’t intentional, and meant to drive the narrative. It’s tin foil hat territory, but this Administration has set new standards for tin foil hat whackery.
