NY Times advocates gun CONFISCATION in jaw-dropping ‘first front-page editorial since 1920!’

In its first front-page editorial since the end of the First World War, The New York Times editorial board advocated outright gun confiscation as the solution to end violence.

Friday’s above-the-fold piece headlined “The Gun Epidemic” called civilian gun ownership “a moral outrage and a national disgrace.”

After 95 years of front-page silence, the Grey Lady’s editors chose this particular recurrent theme touted so often in President Obama’s rhetoric: A strange coincidence.


There is so much wrong with this strident, fear-mongering approach that conservative author Jonah Goldberg had no problem destroying it, despite being exhausted from travel and a few stiff drinks.

Apparently, the kind of ban the Times editors called for is already law in California.  That didn’t stop the terrorists.  But they want to go further than a simple ban.

The editorial flatly states, “Certain kinds of weapons, like the slightly modified combat rifles used in California, and certain kinds of ammunition, must be outlawed for civilian ownership.”

That means confiscation.


Apart from tossing the Second Amendment into the trash, the editors at the Times didn’t seem to think through the implications of their position.
