Cox Op-Ed Heaps Further Scorn On Washington Post Writer

We told you last week how NRA-ILA Executive Director Chris W. Cox took on Washington Post writer Dana Milbank for lying about the NRA, hunters and law-abiding gun owners. Cox recently doubled down on that piece with a column at dailycaller.com pointing out further problems with Milbank’s Post op-ed.

“Milbank’s article, about a new piece of pro-sportsmen legislation, the SHARE Act, is littered with misleading and incorrect terminology to describe even the most basic firearms classifications, revealing how little he actually knows about guns,” Cox wrote. “His contempt for hunters, NRA members and gun owners in general is made clear through his condescending tone and misrepresentation of the facts.”

Cox concluded: “Instead of acknowledging the very real difficulties America’s sportsmen face, Milbank takes issue with nearly every aspect of this comprehensive bill, denouncing all sportsmen in the process and showing the world that he is incapable of objective reporting on a major piece of legislation before Congress.”
