The Orlando Shooter – did Omar Mateen use an AR-15 to massacre 49 people? The AR-15 is the anti-gunners weapon of choice to complain about. They have been ranting about the getting rid of the “tools” of the terrorist now since Sunday’s deadly massacre.
It wasn’t an “AR-15”
Turns out he did not use an AR-15. It didn’t even have an AR platform or ANY interchangeable parts with an AR. It was a Sig Sauer MCX.
And AR doesn’t mean “assault rifle,” so maybe we could get Armalite rifles to change the blasted designation. This has become ridiculous.
Mateen used the following rifle, according to Bob Owens at Bearing Arms:
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.
The pistol he used was a Glock 17. The “17” refers to the number of bullets in the magazine. Both the rifle and the pistol utilize magazines that are inserted ONE at a time. And Obama, he didn’t have “multiple clips in his gun.”
Hillary Clinton told a crowd in Cleveland, Ohio right after the shooting that “anyone who is being investigated by the FBI shouldn’t be able to just go out and buy a gun.” Cough. choke. ahem. Ok.
She said we need to “remove the tools” they use (referring to guns). Obama said the same. Though both used the term “terrorist,” they failed to identify the type. Liberals have blamed everyone from “Christian Conservatives,” to the “NRA” as being at fault.
But the issue isn’t about what weapons they used, it’s about WHO is using them.
Guns or broken system?
Mateen was a radical Muslim from the beginning. His work colleagues reported him previously for talking about killing people. Nothing was done. He worked as a contractor for the Department of Homeland Security and passed the “background checks.” He was tied to an IMAM who just got out of prison. Is all of that REALLY ABOUT GUNS?
His father is a radical Muslim that has ties to the Taliban, as we reported. His father also has ties to the government in some fashion because of his running for the Afghanistan Presidency.
The media and the liberals are trying desperately to drive the conversation on this massacre toward “hate crime” instead of “religion.” Don’t let them. It’s about a Muslim shooting gays because of his Islamic-shariah-gay-hating ideology.
News media say he “frequented the club.” No doubt this plan was in his mind for a long time. He knew the layout of the club, the people who frequented it, the exits and entrances. He knew all along who he was going to kill and how.
