    Almost all major newspapers are doing the same things as the Times.:barf:

    In general I find the news to be sloppy, innacurate and biased. The above article shows only a few gun related examples. The journalist profession should either police itself or hang their heads in shame.

    Well documented evidence of a strong herd and pack mentality.

    From Merriam-Websters' Collegiate Dictionary:

    Herd--1 a : a number of animals of one kind kept together under human control

    Pack--5 a (1) : a group of domesticated animals trained to hunt or run together (2) : a group of often predatory animals of the same kind *a wolf pack* (3) : a large group of individuals massed together (as in a race)

    There are "journalists" who are directed not to use pro-gun sources in their pieces.

    There are "journalists" who would rather go to an anti-gun source to get information on pro-gun positions.

    There are "journalists" who are afraid to contact the NRA for information.

    The situation will change only when "journalists" change their profession to that of one reporting events and opposed to "changing society."

    A wonderful piece that should be printed and carried! A few thoughts:

    :uhoh:
    Say what? I was not aware of that! Doesn't that mean that Sarah Brady really DID make a straw purchase? Doesn't it, in fact, mean that if I buy dad that .45-70 he's been wanting, I will be considered to be making a straw purchase? How can that make any sense? Perhaps gifts are excluded, but still . . . .

    And quoting Thomas Friedman and Maureen Dowd? I swear, it's just about reached the point where it's actually unfair to bring up Maureen Dowd. It's like hanging Ted Rall around the Left's neck. They're wrong about a lot of things, but it almost makes me feel bad to insinuate that they're as crazy as Dowd or Rall. The woman is a moron in the rough. If she studies real hard, she might someday rise to the level of blithering idiot.

    Ah, the bottom line. If you don't want the read the whole article, here's the thesis summed up nicely.

    So, Mr. Kopel when are you suing the NYT and that lying hack Butterfield?

    Don, I've said it before, I'll say it again. Yes, Sarah Brady made a straw purchase. Why the NRA is not calling for her head, I do not know. (Well, I do--the flabby flannels).

    How great would that be! Sarah in the BoP for being a gun criminal.:cool:
