What the hell is this amateurish anti-gun agitprop doing on The New York Times website? The Ghost of Gun Control is about as visually compelling as an international sailboat race. Drew Christie’s piss-poor “Op-Vid” depends heavily on Adam Winkler’s book Gun Fight. Christie riffs on it to offer on the usual mischaracterization of the “Wild West” as gun control heaven and a snide slam claiming that “many modern gun enthusiasts” are trigger happy Clint Eastwood wanna-be’s. The bit equating the 1792 federal law mandating firearms ownership to the gun grabbers’ desire to create a federal gun registry (ahead of potential confiscation) is particularly galling. Actually, no. It’s not galling. It’s pathetic. This video isn’t funny or entertaining. It’s rubbish. The Old Gray Lady has never sunk so low. Until the next time.
