How the internet reacted to a hilarious scare mongering video about AR-15s

in guns •  13 days ago

Did you know you can fit a chainsaw on a rifle to stab people?

You have probably seen a video going around that shows what type of firearm the Texas shooter used in his horrible acts: an AR-15 style rifle. The mainstream media and many government officials have been campaigning against these types of firearms, because "they can kill a lot of people". While this is true, it obviously is a very ill-informed statement to scare people and distract them from far greater dangers.

Today, the scare mongering reached peak levels thanks to USA TODAY. Look at this hilarious scare mongering:

It looks like they took this straight from a zombie apocalypse movie. Who in their right mind would attach a chansaw to their rifle? Does that even fit? You must have some crazy adapted chainsaw if you want to securely attach that to a rifle.

Of course, the internet saved us from this ridiculousness with some awesome reactions.

How the internet reacted

Here are some of the best reactions I've seen up till now:

This is a good one for commies, I guess.


Portal gun!




This one kills you instantly.






If a chainsaw fits... EVERYTHING FITS!


And it gets more and more hilarious


I'm sure there are many many more out there. If you have a good one to add, please leave them in the comments. These memes absolutely made my day.

In light of the Texas shooting, the gun control debate lights up again. The US government really know how to "never let a good crisis go to waste". Luckily, many alternative media have been pushing back against this propaganda. For example,
take a look at this video by @thepholosopher, who debunks the three big myths about so-called assault rifles.

It's time to turn off the types of media that produce nothing but propaganda and abuse people's emotions into thinking peaceful people need to be violently controlled by others (the state). They do not deserve our attention, except for when we make them look ridiculous like in this case.

Haha I love the light saber one! :) Thanks for sharing.

Hello & Cheers!! I'm a content detection and information bot. You are receiving this reply because a short link or links have been detected in your post/comment. The purpose of this message is to inform your readers and yourself about the use of and dangers of short links.

To the readers of the post: Short links are provided by url shortening services. The short links they provide can be useful in some cases. Generally their use is benign. But as with all useful tools there are dangers. Short links can be used to hide all sorts of things. Quite frequently they are used to hide referral links for instance. While not dangerous this can be deceptive. They can also be used to hide dangerous links such as links to phishing sites, sites loaded with malware, scam sites, etc. You should always be extremely cautious before clicking on one. If you don't know and trust the poster don't click. Even if you do you should still be cautious and wary of any site you are sent to. It's always better to visit the site directly and not through a short link.

To the author of the post: While short links may be useful on some sites they are not needed on steemit. You can use markdown to format your links such as this link to steemit. It's as simple as [steemit](https://steemit.com) Unlike short links this allows the reader to see where they are going by simply hovering over the link before they click on it.

This message was created by a bot. It is part of the ongoing fight against spam and phishing attacks on steemit. If you did not use short links in your post and feel you have received this message in error you can contact @fubar-bdhr on discord or @fubar.bdhr on steemit chat to report the issue.

Short links are really dangerous and should be outlawed...

Have you got a chainsaw to defend yourself yet?

I laughed my butt off yesterday. Absolutely hilarious :D

I hate this whole debate about gun control. Its in our constitution for a reason. Even countries like Japan for example where guns are not allow there have been cases from people running around with Machete or swords and killing just as many as with any of the mass shootings here in the untied states. If anything everyone should have a gun its going to make you think twice before you start shooting at someone else who has a gun as well you wont be getting very far.

I agree, it's a natural right that is currently being violated in many countries, including mine. Gun control doesn't guarantee peace. Civilian gun ownership doesn't guarantee violence. I suspect other factors have to be taken into account if you really want to address the issue, such as culture, socioeconomic situation, population size, etc. But still, self defense is your natural right, no matter the cicrumstances, and even if you have to assume responsibility for yourself because of it.
