Those who are most opposed to guns happen to also be those who know the least about them. That was made crystal clear when a CNN regular showed her ignorance about firearms last week.
Columnist and CNN commentator Sally Kohn tweeted:
What about the mothers and fathers who have lost their violence to white guys with AK-15s conducting mass shootings? Why not profile them?

Of course, there’s no such thing as an AK-15 — there are AR-15s and AK 47s.
And she got roundly — and appropriately — hounded for it. Herd are a few examples:

@EXgoptraci @sallykohn What is an AK-15, haven’t seen one yet. And how does someone lose there violence?

Lost their violence? That’s a strange turn of phrase for someone whose business is words. One person offered Kohn some help.

Still another offered this:

The discussion eventually led to the relative merits of the two weapons that Kohn had confused.
@EXgoptraci Why I prefer my AR-15

In fairness to Kohn, she’s hardly the only gun hater to demonstrate ignorance of firearms, and her mistake was merely a confusion of nomenclatures.
After the Orlando gay nightclub bloodbath last month, President Obama made multiple mistakes and misstatements of fact.
