“Rural mom” and “dirt road Democrat” Jess Piper took some serious backlash for her Friday claim that the AR-15 could not be effectively used for hunting.

Piper (@Piper4missouri), who is currently serving as the executive director of Blue Missouri, tweeted, “You don’t hunt game with an AR. It destroys the meat. The more you know …”

“Well, Hell, I’ve been doing it wrong all these years! Who knew! All I needed to do was consult with a non-hunting ‘pro’ that thinks she knows everything. That’s an AR in the picture, not that you didn’t know that already being the pro that you are,” tweeted @MAC_arms, Indiana state director for Gun Owners of America — and he even provided a photo.

A number pointed out that while some AR models are banned for big game hunting in certain states, it’s not because the bullets do so much damage. Rather, it’s because they often don’t do enough — and it’s considered inhumane to wound the animal instead of killing it outright.

“I can’t tell if this is satire or not. You don’t hunt game (except smaller animals) because the bullet is to small to kill the animal reliably. You hunt with much larger rounds that can cause more damage,” Sara Hidden explained.

“Most people don’t hunt ‘game’ with an AR-15 because the caliber is too small and isn’t considered ethical in some states. Plenty can and do use an AR-10. Unless you are ‘hunting’ tyrants. Then the caliber is less important than the range and barriers you need to defeat. ‘The more …” former FBI agent Kyle Seraphin added.

And others simply mocked her for her claim — which falls right in line with some of the claims President Joe Biden has made regarding the firearms he’d like to see banned. (“AR-15s just rip the body apart,” the president has said.)

Twitter’s Community Notes even provided context via a TIME Magazine article, which confirmed that the AR-15 was regularly used by avid hunters for a variety of game animals, including but not limited to “feral goats, feral pigs, antelope jackrabbits, elk, coyote, and deer.”
