Gun Guys gaffe
The Gun Guys (which is actually an antigun page) has a posting proclaiming how a mentally-disturbed fellow was shot by police after he got a " .50 caliber rifle with a scope on it and pointed it at officers. "
They use this as a opportunity to go with their .50 spiel:
"t's terrifying to think what might have happened if an officer was shot with such a devastating weapon. It's ours, and certainly every officer's worst nightmare. A weapon designed to shoot down civilian aircraft during takeoff and landing would devastate and rip apart a person's body if shot by one of these powerful weapon." Can shoot down an airliner, etc., etc.
But if you check out the story you find:
"Jessica says they told police Casey had no black powder for the muzzle loader, but police say they can't take that chance."
