USA Today examines ‘less lethal’ guns used in school shooting that left 10 dead

The mainstream media seems so baffled an AR-15 wasn’t used that they actually spinning it as “imagine how bad it COULD have been!”

When 10 people get killed by a gunman who didn’t use an AR-15 but instead used a shotgun and a handgun, we get stuff like this from USA Today:

Yep, this is the headline: Guns used in Texas killings were less lethal than in other mass shootings.

The attack at a Texas high school Friday echoed the all-too-familiar horrors Americans are accustomed to seeing on the news. But two details set it apart from the list of other recent deadly attacks: explosives and weapons used.

Texas Gov. Greg Abbott in Texas says the gunman, Dimitrios Pagourtzis, who was a student at Santa Fe High School, used two firearms: a shotgun and .38 caliber revolver, both of which he got from his father. Ten were left dead, mostly students.

Disgustingly, the mainstream media seems so disappointed an AR-15 wasn’t used that they actually spinning 10 dead students as “but imagine how bad it COULD have been!”

No word from USA Today on if the guns used in the shooting were the kind that can accommodate the notorious “chainsaw bayonet” accessory:

When the media tries to pretend they know what they’re talking about when it comes to guns, the self-beclownings are quite a treat.
