MSNBC: A Shotgun is a Backwards Funnel. You Don't Have to Aim
Yesterday, an asshat popped off in a newspaper office. Unfortunately for the left, an AR was nowhere to be found. The criminalizing dickweed instead used a shotty to dispense his dickery. Leaving many a leftist to wonder what such a device is.
Seeing as nobody cares enough about what MSNBC has to say, an embeddable video was nowhere to be found. You'll have to click here to watch the video. Blame MSNBC for sucking.
NBC correspondent Pete Williams employed an interesting analogy on Friday when trying to describe how shotguns work.
According to Williams, describing the gun used by the shooter in the Capital Gazette newsroom on Thursday, insisted that shotguns operate like a “backwards funnel.”
“A shotgun, uh, uh, you know, if you’re not familiar with a shotgun, it sets out a spray of pellets and because a bullet simply goes in a straight line and shotgun is sort of like a backwards funnel, it spreads it out so that you don’t have to aim very precisely,” Williams claimed on MSNBC on Friday. “It can do a lot of damage to the people that you aim it at, but you don’t fire a lot of rounds with a shotgun, so I think that has something to do with it.”
Yes, a backwards funnel. It would appear this gent is confusing a modern shotgun with the blunderbusses from the days of old. Which is what happens when the extent of your gat "knowledge" is repeated viewings of Pirates of the Caribbean.
The non-gun guy is correct in his claims of shotguns spreading. At least when they're packing buckshot or birdshot. Though, they don't spray pellets in every direction. Contrary to this chap's brainfart of a remark, you still have to aim.
Chalk this up as yet another incident of the left knowing nothing about guns. They want to have a conversation about blasters, yet they don't seem to have a handle on even the basics. It would appear common sense on lead-slingers isn't as common as it seems.
Speaking of that:
