“Filmmaker’ Michael Moore imparted some information to his 2.29 million followers on Twitter that will come as news to bitter clingers everywhere.

The informative tweet, posted last evening, included a recommendation that federal investigators release crime scene photos from Sunday’s massacre at a gay nightclub in Orland, which Moore is convinced would change the conversation on gun rights dramatically.

Here’s the tweet:

Moore doesn’t bother to provide sources for his claims, but that’s nothing new. (Neither is his urging that the gory photos be made public — he  made the same obscene demand in 2013 following the shootings at Sandy Hook, never bothering to allow for the traumatic impact the images would have on the families and loved ones of those who died.)

But back to Moore’s fanciful claims. Here, for your edification is a link to the Geneva Conventions. A simple text search for “AR-15” turns up nothing. Ditto for “weapon.”

As for the part about the ammo spinning and exploding once in the body, that is a boast about this particular firearm that I’ve never heard, although a litany of magical claims ascribed to the AR-15 exists:
