Medal Of Honor Recipient Refutes New York Magazine On ISIS/NRA Claims

Eric Levitz’s LinkedIn profile says he’s both a journalist and a comedy writer. His latest piece for New York Magazine would fall into the latter category, says Medal of Honor recipient Dakota Meyer.

In his latest article, titled “ISIS Appreciates the NRA’s Work,” Levitz tried to convince readers that radical Islamic terrorists were the beneficiaries of NRA’s efforts. On Sunday, Meyer set the record straight on Fox News’ "Fox & Friends" show.

“Once again, the media is going out and they’re using their First Amendment to try to go after the Second Amendment by not looking at the facts,” Meyer said. Rather than NRA helping ISIS, the Marine Corps veteran pointed out that it’s actually the other way around. What stands in the way of ISIS being able to come over and do terrorist acts “is the NRA standing there protecting our rights to be able to bear arms and stand up for ourselves,” concludes Meyer.
