The Times Does Not Approve

Gun owners don't expect The New York Times to be fair when reporting on gun issues. But we should demand fairness when the paper defames an individual gun owner.

In an editorial about the new senator from New York, Kirsten Gillibrand, the Times fumes:

"Can she represent a constituency beyond the narrow politics of her district, where she has been a bullet-headed opponent of gun control, proudly basking in the extremist affections of the National Rifle Association?"

The "extremist affections" of the NRA? Let's see who's "extremist."

Last year Rasmussen Reports conducted a poll that found that the approval rating for The New York Times was just 24%. Meanwhile, the NRA's approval rating (according to a 2007 Pew Research poll) was more than twice as high as the NYTimes.

Even in the northeast, the home base of The New York Times, the NRA's public support was a full 18 points higher than that of the paper.

The editors of the Times editorial page need to understand something. There are far more "bullet-headed opponents of gun control" than there are pencil-necked, close-minded, knee-knocking anti-gun editorial writers in America.

The NRA is proud to have the support of those defending the Second Amendment, and we're proud to support them as well.
