Ironically, while anti-gun organizations are on a crusade to enlighten and educate the public on the deadliness of guns, they’re often completely uneducated on the subject themselves. Take Everytown for Gun Safety, for instance, which recently shared an embarrassing anti-gun article that was accompanied by an even more embarrassing photo.
Over the weekend, Everytown tweeted a link to a Newsweek article spouting the racist message that arming teachers will precipitate them to shoot “black and brown children,” because minority children are more likely to be suspended/disciplined than white children.
“If teachers are allowed to carry handguns in classrooms, Trump’s proposal will only make black and brown children like mine less safe—facing an increased risk of gun violence in the places they go to learn and grow.” https://t.co/IavZUcyUP7

But while that assumption is disgusting and abhorrent, it might not be the worst thing about that tweet. Look again – there’s something very wrong with the accompanying picture. Do you see it?
The bullet is loaded into the magazine backwards.
Of course, it didn’t take people long to point out the error.
Who ever is holding that weapon isn’t going to be doing anything once that mag goes in.

Well, you can’t shoot anything with that magazine in the gun, SINCE IT’S LOADED BACKWARDS!!

I wouldn’t worry about teachers who load their magazines backwards doing much damage

Good luck getting a gun loaded with that mag to fire. Bullets go the OTHER way, genius. Yes, some people should never have a gun. Like this dude.

Not only is this untrue and unfounded, but the reported gun control group can’t even get a picture with a correctly loaded magazine 😂

Hmmmmm don’t try and educate me when you don’t know how to load a magazine 🤷🏼♂️

The problem with anti-gun organizations like Everytown is summed up perfectly in that final tweet: they’re attempting to educate the public on something which they know absolutely nothing about themselves.
Share this to help spread the truth about how uninformed groups like Everytown are!
