The journalist for USA today who decided to give some background information about the tragic shooting that happened in a Texas church this week in which 27 people died should have done some more research.
In order to probably serve a political agenda and get a conversation going on gun control, the gentleman wanted to give his reading audience an overview of the possible style modifications users could give to their AR-15. In other words, which possible alternations could the shooter have done to try and make even more victims.
So USA sent out a tweet with a video about the subject, entitled “A look at the gun used in the Texas church shooting,” which included a video with possible alternatives.
One of them, still according to USA today, was a chainsaw bayonet.
We can only guess that the gentleman got his research from the ETC show, a sort of Buzzfeed style Youtube video website where viral videos are made. One of those was called Zombie Overkill and did manage to combine the most ridiculous weapons ever, one of which was indeed an AR-15 with a chainsaw so you could chop off zombie heads. The fact that the USA today journalist didn’t get the obvious sarcasm at this point is baffling but still.
Have a look at it and tell us if you think this is real.

Though this got a lot of people laughing already, one twitter use was quick to point out that the journalist had forgotten an obvious other modification, to attach a detachable blame thrower in the form of a head of Hillary Clinton, looking to find someone to blame for the 2016 Presidential Election loss she suffered.
