Is it really too much to ask that reporters covering gun legislation have even a basic understanding of what it would do or how current law works? How can basic mistakes still get published at major publications on a regular basis?? This is embarrassing. https://t.co/bqVnpk7xO0 pic.twitter.com/Akim5K8AJr

Unlike so many of his colleagues in Big Media, the Washington Free Beacon’s Stephen Gutowski knows a thing or two about firearms and the laws and regulations that surround them. Which is why you can almost hear his palm meet his face after reading this article from the fact-deprived wizards at Politico.
You have to try pretty hard to pack that much misinformation into a single sentence, but Politico’s Burgess Everett was up to the task. Pretty impressive.
