Ever since the horrific attack in Orlando early Sunday morning the lies about guns and gun control have been flying fast and furious (no pun intended). First of all the rifle the monster used to create the carnage at the Pulse Nightclub was not an AR-15, As my buddy Jazz Shaw pointed out
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.
