The no-longer-the-Newspaper-of-Record-of-the-United-States, the New York Times, has an article in today's edition. which depicts the walking back of the cat on the issue of gun control. When President Obama took office, gun rights advocates sounded the alarm, warning that he intended to strip them of their arms and ammunition. And yet the opposite is happening. Mr. Obama has been largely silent on the issue while states are engaged in a new and largely successful push for expanded gun rights, even passing measures that have been rejected in the past. Here is the complete article: NYT: States push looser gun laws - The New York Times- msnbc.com As you read the article, you can see the slant against gun rights and gun owners plain as day in the choice of words Ian Urbana uses. You will also note that he beats the drum of "close the gun show loophole" while conveniently omitting the FBI's conclusion that much less than 1% of criminals obtain guns at gun shows. He also tries to make much of the 'successes' the anti-gunners have had with votes on 20 college campuses banning concealed carry by students licensed to carry concealed, while downplaying pro-gun laws passed by state legislatures around the country. When a reporter for a national paper has to dip down to board of regents votes to come up with a meaningless statistic to support his anti-gun position, you know the situation must be getting desperate for the anti-gunners. It surely will be fun to watch these leftists try to tapdance around the ***-kicking I fully expect Alan Gura to give to the lawyer supporting the anti-gun Chicago position in front of the Supreme Court next week!
