<p>[See<a href="http://www.newsbusters.org/blogs/nb/scott-whitlock/2016/07/11/fox-news-…; NewsBusters</a> for more.] When Jesse Jackson on Sunday tried to tell Fox News viewers that the Dallas shooter used an &ldquo;AK-47,&rdquo; the type of gun that could &ldquo;bring down airplanes,&rdquo; Fox News host Shannon Bream quickly rebuffed these erroneous claims. Jackson appeared on <em>Fox News Sunday</em> to lobby for more gun control, arguing, &ldquo;[we] must do more with these military-style weapons on the street.&rdquo; He told Bream, &ldquo;But in Texas, these AK-47s, not only can they shoot up theaters and churches, they can bring down airplanes.&rdquo; The Fox host retorted, &ldquo;With all respect, if reports are correct the shooter in Texas was using an AR-15, it&#39;s not an automatic weapon, it couldn&#39;t bring down an airplane.&rdquo;</p>
