Journalism is Dead: ‘New York Times’ Runs Page One Editorial Pushing Democrats’ Anti-Gun Agenda

There is so much that is wrong here that it’s almost impossible to cover in a blog post.

The body count in San Bernardino is the result of yet another post-9/11 security failure, not the Second Amendment.

Again, if there were any real journalists left in America, they would be digging into a host of things that have nothing to do with restricting the constitutional rights of law abiding Americans.

    “End the Gun Epidemic in America”

    For quite a few years now, the number of guns owned by law-abiding Americans has gone up up up, while the number of gun homicides has gone down. If real epidemics of real diseases were like that, they’d be a lot easier to deal with.

    “Opponents of gun control are saying, as they do after every killing, that no law can unfailingly forestall a specific criminal. That is true…They point out that determined killers obtained weapons illegally in places like France, England and Norway that have strict gun laws. Yes they did.

    Certain kinds of weapons, like the slightly modified combat rifles used in California, and certain kinds of ammunition, must be outlawed for civilian ownership…and, yes, it will require Americans who own these kinds of weapons to give them up for the good of their fellow citizens”

    There you go. Police and gun control laws can’t protect you from criminals, lunatics and terrorists, so it’s time to outlaw guns and give them up for your own good. That’s NYT logic in action.

    “What better time than during a presidential election to show, at long last, that our nation has retained its sense of decency?”

    Digging up the ghost of Joe McCarthy. Aren’t you glad that commies and the NYT are always on the side of decency?

    Women voters eat this shit up.

      My 77 year old mother just bought her first handgun.
      My 53 year old next door neighbor just bought her first handgun.
      A couple days ago at the big box gun store, the woman in front of me was buying her first handgun.

      Women are starting to understand that a handgun is a great equalizer – and that vibrancy is coming to to visit soon.

      Most urban women and a good number of urban men eat it up. It is a rare rural woman who does from the ones I have known.

    Buried in the middle of their rant are a couple sentences that betray what the liberals really want:

    It is not necessary to debate the peculiar wording of the Second
    Amendment. No right is unlimited and immune from reasonable

    The first sentence – you’ll recognize this tactic from the AGW debate – boils down to “STFU”. The second sentence is an foot in the door to abolishing not only the Second Amendment but all constitutional rights – and you can bet as soon as 2A is hobbled, 1A will quickly follow.

      AG, Loretta Lynch, Remarks at Muslim event Threaten Free Speech

      Benjamin Franklin, Silence Dogood No. 8 1:27a
      “This sacred Privilege is so essential to free Goverments, that the Security of Property, and the Freedom of Speech always go together; and in those wretched Countries where a Man cannot call his Tongue his own, he can scarce call any Thing else his own. Whoever would overthrow the Liberty of a Nation, must begin by subduing the Freeness of Speech; a Thing terrible to Publick Traytors”

    The left’s approach this week has been:
    1) It’s more white men killing people so we need gun control!
    2) Whoops. It was Moslems killing people so we need gun control!

  • Xavier

    From the article: “No right is unlimited and immune from reasonable

    Alrighty then. Let’s modify the First Amendment and outlaw Islam. That sounds like “reasonable regulation” to me.

      I know by their logic you could also make it so a specific race couldn’t vote as well. If someone suggested that then the left would go all ape shit.

        Excellent idea.

    Obama and the FBI caused the SB slaughter, now they have the nerve to rush in take the credit for being the answers to stop more from happening .

    The 2 muslims in canada that went jihad and kill 2 military people were being WATCHED by our security people.

    Thanks to CAIR and Sheema Khan here in Canada, we get sued each time a suspected muslims terrorist is arrested or ID’d in the media.
    Khan and her hamas funding CAIR also coaches muslim to NOT help the RCMP of FBI tract down muslims tied to jihad terrorism .

    So it’s pretty rich for CAIR to demand the FBI take over the Chapel Hill case when 3 muslims provoked the shooting by Mr.Hicks which CAIR also wanted local people to help the FBI with anything they know .

    Muslim go jihad = Muslim go quiet
    Muslim get killed = Muslim want FBI to help and non-muslim witnesses too

    I think it might be a Tweet but if not, then it’s at a mainstream libertarian-conservative site like Weasel Zippers or Instapundit but they juxtapose this new one with a front-page editorial from the 1930s NYT praising Hitler for being the only foreign government leader praising the work FDR was doing to reform the U.S. because both leaders were only concerned with putting the unemployed back to work!
