Default Dem candidate who sawed AR-15 in political stunt gone viral gets hit with major reali

Dumb broad is runnin' for Congress and decided to destroy an AR-15 live on vid. Only prob is she didn't destroy it. She simply sawed the barrel in half and made it illegal.

Dem candidate who sawed AR-15 in political stunt gone viral gets hit with major reality check

A Virginia woman running for Congress as a Democrat is now being investigated by the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives after she sawed off the barrel of an AR-15 rifle in a political stunt.

What happened?

Karen Mallard, who is running for Virginia’s second congressional district, went viral this week after she posted a video to her Facebook page that showed her cutting the barrel off of an AR-15 rifle that her husband bought “a while back.”

Mallard said she was spurred to “destroy” the rifle after the tragic shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas high school on Feb. 14.

However, as the video illustrated, Mallard didn’t actually destroy the rifle. Instead, she only shorted the rifle’s barrel, transforming it into an illegal firearm as defined by the National Firearms Act. Thousands of commentators on the video pointed that fact out, and apparently, Mallard’s stunt didn’t go unnoticed with law enforcement.

What happened next?

According to WVEC-TV, a Virginia Beach police department spokesperson confirmed the ATF was investigating the incident. The news station also confirmed Mallard surrendered the damaged rifle to local law enforcement.

How did Mallard respond?

She wrote in her Facebook post that she followed the law and accused “NRA trolls” of being more concerned about firearms than the safety of school children.

“And yes for all the NRA trolls out there, I finished the job according to regulation and turned it over to the police. Why are you more outraged about me taking a gun out of circulation than about our children being murdered in our schools?” she wrote.

I doubt this woman is a gun owner. Because if she was actually was a gun owner then she would have know that merely sawing the barrel in half does not in any shape or form destroy a rifle. She would also know that functionally a AR15 is no different than any other semiautomatic rifle out there. The only thing she accomplished was turning a semi-automtic firearm into a single shot firearm seeing how that gas tube was cut. The barrel amd gas tube of an AR15 can easily be replaced.Heck so can other parts of the gun.



This seems to be the new thing after mass shootings of phonies claiming to be gun owners either surrendering firearms to the police or sawing the barrel off an ar15 claiming to have destroyed the firearm. This kind of reminds me of when anti-2nd amendment trash tried to set up fake pro-2nd amendment groups. I wonder if these morons realize that in this country we have more than 310 million firearms in the US, so their little pr stunt of fake gun owners sawing AR15 rifles won't if make a dent.

If these anti-2nd amendment trash really want the sales of guns to go down then they need to quit screaming for bans every time there is a mass shooting involving white victims. Because the only thing screaming for a ban does is encourage people to run out and buy the guns before they no longer can. Because of Bill Clinton signing the assaults ban into law and various anti-2nd amendment states enacting anti-2nd amendment laws it showed that democrats really do want to ban guns.

Sawing off the barrel of a gun is the same crime they set up arrest Randy Weaver on, that's Randy Weaver of Ruby Ridge.
And he only did it at the repeated request of informants for the ATF that were trying to set him up.


Look out belowSarcasm ALERT!
Where's the ATF when you need um?

What an idiot.

I suppose, technically, she is disabling the rifle. She is sawing through the gas tube and it looks like it might be to short to re-attach the gas block.

Whether or not she knows how to make a short-barreled rifle, she broke the law. Ignorance is no excuse.

Oh, I agree. Don't mistake my comments as some sort of defense for her stupidity.

She also shouldn't be allowed to use power tools.
She is holding the tool upside-down as evident by the sparks flying upwards into the air. A cutting tool should always throw the debris and sparks downward so as to minimize the possibility of a spark being flung onto the operator of the tool and minimize the spread of the sparks and debris.

That makes her an idiot times 2.

P.S.
She ought to hire somebody to take care of her yard, it looks like an ugly mess of weeds.
