Everytown For Gun Safety, an anti-gun activist group known for posting all kinds of false stats about gun violence in an effort to strip law-abiding citizens of their Second Amendment rights, tweeted a Newsweek article alleging that arming teachers would somehow make minority children in urban schools "less safe."
Perhaps even more ridiculous than the premise of the article was the photo along with it: a gun, with a magazine that's loaded...backwards.
So, just to recap: the anti-gun group that thinks itself qualified to dictate gun policy is so ignorant about firearms that they didn't even notice the bullets in this guy's magazine are pointing the wrong way.
Thankfully, though, a whole lot of people on Twitter did.
Who ever is holding that weapon isn't going to be doing anything once that mag goes in.— Spaceforce Designated Marksman🐝 (@TeKniKaL45) March 18, 2018
I wouldn’t worry about teachers who load their magazines backwards doing much damage— Miranda Muzik (@MMuzik30) March 19, 2018
Not only is this untrue and unfounded, but the reported gun control group can't even get a picture with a correctly loaded magazine 😂— #China = #EmergingMarkets America (@Lemieux_26) March 19, 2018
Hmmmmm don’t try and educate me when you don’t know how to load a magazine 🤷🏼♂️— potato boi (@jakedmathis) March 19, 2018
Ummm, There's not much of a risk with that magazine. The ammo's in backwards. Sort of like your thought processes.— Charles Ely (@1sfreedom) March 19, 2018
So am I supposed be confident that people who load a magazine backward know anything about firearms ?— Gary Carlo (@GaryACarlo) March 19, 2018
Insert that mag... let me know how it goes... or doesn't— John Wagner (@boomanchu67) March 19, 2018
Perhaps, in their all-out sprint to seize legally owned guns from millions of law-abiding Americans, Everytown might want to learn basic firearm information first.
Then again, knowing them? Probably not.
