A Laugher: NYT's "Politics of the Gun"
NEW YORK -- When the New York Times is unhappy about guns, gun owners are usually laughing.
See the paper's editorial, "Politics of the Gun." The bleating from the paper's gun haters will make any CCL holder guffaw. In that editorial, the NYT said:
Congress has shamefully caved in, yet again, to the gun lobby and abandoned the effort to grant the long-suffering District of Columbia a voting representative in the House. Hopes for passage were high this year, until the historic measure was poisoned in the Senate with an amendment to strip the districts government of its power to enact responsible gun control laws.
Sadly, the districts need for strong controls was dramatized Wednesday when a man the authorities identified as a white supremacist opened fire with a rifle and killed a guard at the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum.

Left out of the editorial, of course, was that the man alleged to have committed the crime was a felon, who couldn't possess firearms legally anyway.
