GunControl Activist Finds Picture of Scary Gun Silenced After Learning What She Really Posted
Case in point is the following tweet from Shannon Watts, leader of the Bloomberg-backed Moms Demand Action gun control advocacy group, who posted a picture of a “scary” looking rifle and fretted that an 18-year-old adult could purchase one at a sporting goods store, according to The Daily Wire.
You can buy this at @SportsmansWH if you’re 18. Tell them #NoGunUntil21 pic.twitter.com/85o34rbbD5

In the eyes of Watts and her small but vocal coterie of liberal moms demanding gun bans, the above rifle should be classified as an “assault weapon” and ripped from the hands of law-abiding citizens, largely because of its black “tactical” appearance that resembles a military-issue firearm.
But in reality, the gun Watts is apparently so fearful of is nothing more than a bolt-action .22 long rifle caliber firearm, the sort of firearm that legions of gun owners learned to shoot with and grew up around as children. Deadly with a well-placed shot, yes, but still barely a step above a BB gun, and largely suitable for target practice or hunting small game like rabbits and gophers.
Don’t look now Shannon Watts but your ignorance is showing. You literally picked the least dangerous rifle commonly used by adolescents for target practice, to demonstrate that it’s too dangerous for adults, only because it’s “SCARY” looking.
