SAN DIEGO (KGTV) — A meme going around in the wake of Monday’s mass shooting in Boulder claims an AR-15 gun was used by the shooter in 12 recent shootings.
For the most part, it’s true.
The one exception is the Pulse Nightclub shooting in Orlando, in which a different semi-automatic weapon was used.
Although it's not yet official, CNN is reporting Monday’s shooter did use an AR-15-style rifle.
The Boulder City Council actually passed an assault weapons ban in 2018. But a Colorado judge blocked it from being enforced less than two weeks ago.
