NBC4 Columbus Confused AR15 with a Shotgun

There is seemingly no end to the extent to which anti-gun people and groups will lie about guns and gun owners. Post links to articles by these masters of prevarication here.

My wife showed me this video and I just couldn't believe how explosive an AR15 could be. Perhaps I should post a video of me destroying mine in protest of the weapon of mass destruction. I mean, it's a .22 on steroids, right?

There actually are shotguns that resemble AR's. But this ain't one of them.

Why don't news stations find someone who actually knows a tiny bit about the subject they are reporting on? Do they send someone who has never had a dog to cover a dog show? Or hire a sports reporter who has never played, or even watched, sports?

Or can they really just not find anyone at the station that knows anything about guns? They must have someone around that owns a gun, even if it's the security folks. Can't they just say to them, "hey I know this isn't your job, but can you please take a quick look at this and let us know if you see anything glaringly wrong so we don't look like a bunch of idiots?" Anyone who has ever seen a shotgun, or an AR, could have immediately spotted the problem here.

After reading the title and before even playing the video I could tell that was a shotgun. My wife, who knows only a little bit about guns, could see after watching the video that was not an AR-15. I wonder how may people they did fool though? As much as I agree with Soccerdad about checking with someone who has a clue, they won't because their rhetoric is causing the unknowing to actually believe this crap.

What an idiot reporter. If you’re going to report gun news, you should be able to recognize a Glock when you see one!
