The New York Times Is Pro Gun


Today’s New York Times features an op-ed entitled The Mayor on Stop-and-Frisk. The Gray Lady takes the short Mayor [Bloomberg] to task for his relentless support for “Stop ‘N Frisk” policing. Obviously, the paper’s pissed at the idea because A) it doesn’t reduce crime and B) it “targets” blacks and hispanics. But here’s the shocker. Not only is the paper against stop and frisk, it’s also pro gun! No really. Here’s the money shot: “No one is opposed to using effective, constitutional means of fighting crime.” And there you have it.
