Alyssa Milano becomes early casualty of her own ignorance after ‘bald-faced lie’ about Texas gun laws

Liberals who insisted that we not politicize last week’s attack in New York City by an Islamic extremist who drove a rented truck onto a bike path killing eight people, were quick to politicize Sunday’s tragic shooting in Texas.

At least 26 people were killed at a church in Sutherland Springs, a small town east of San Antonio, and more than 20 others wounded when a gunman wearing tactical gear opened fire. The killer’s motive is unknown and he was later found dead in his vehicle after fleeing the scene when armed local residents intervened during the massacre.

Gun grabbers immediately took to social media to denounce gun laws in Texas — for the record, the shooter, Devin Kelley, 26, had reportedly been dishonorable discharged from the Air Force and could not legally purchase a firearm.

Among those leading the way was Actress Alyssa Milano.

“There are no background checks on long guns (AR15s) in Texas,” the poorly informed actress tweeted.

Milano based her analogy on an equally misinformed tweet from Shannon Watts, the founder of the Michael Bloomberg-funded gun control group Moms Demand Action.

The gun control crowd was quick to discount the fact that armed citizens brought the massacre to an end, saving countless lives.

Outspoken conservative actor James Woods offered a spot-on counter to Igor Volsky, of the George Soros-backed Center for American Progress, who claimed: “Good guys DIDN’T stop bad guy w/ gun.”

“You are completely wrong. The facts: a gun owner with a legally registered weapon stopped a killer who was using weapons barred by law,” Woods replied.

And while the gun control crowd can be counted on to respond to tragic shootings with campaigns of misinformation designed to restrict the right to own a firearm in America, social media users can also be counted on to set the record straight.

Here’s a sampling of responses to Milano’s “bald-faced lie” from Twitter:
