In its haste to be a liberal hero the Boston Globe made a clumsy mistake.
On the front page of its Thursday edition, the paper had a picture of an AR-15 rifle with the headline “Make It Stop,” a reference to the Orlando massacre.

Just one problem.
The gun that Omar Mateen used to murder 49 Americans was a Sig Sauer MCX semiautomatic rifle, not the oft vilified AR-15.
Not such a minor detail when you are attempting to shift the focus from Islamic terrorism to an inanimate object.
Social media did not let it go unnoticed.

@BostonGlobe this is just ignorance it won’t stop nothing if you ban AR15 modern sporting rifles just punish law abiding citizens

Case in point… Boston Globe’s cover piece shows a weapon that was not used by the shooter in Orlando. The AR15 is hated solely on looks.
