The New York Daily News recently revealed their anti-gun stance—again, still—with their embarrassingly erroneous cover story Same Gun, Different Slay. The article claimed that the Navy Yard killer used the same gun as the Newtown spree killer (an AR-15). In fact, the D.C. shooter used a shotgun. So it’s no surprise that they’ve latched onto the single (as in one) AR-15 surrendered at a recent buy-back event. ‘Firepower frenzy!’ the headline screams! . . .
An AR-15, the same deadly weapon used in the Sandy Hook Elementary School and Aurora, Colo., movie theater massacres, was anonymously surrendered to authorities Saturday for a $200 bank card during an NYPD gun buyback event, officials said. The frightening piece of firepower was one of 96 weapons collected at Calvary Presbyterian Church on Castleton Ave. in Staten Island that included 33 semi-automatic pistols,40 revolvers and 13 rifles. Eight B.B. guns were also collected.
What’s really frightening: a “populist” paper championing civilian disarmament.
