Journal Sentinel Editor: My Guns Are Fine, Yours Not So Much

posted on June 21, 2017

David Haynes, editorial page editor for the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel, has figured out how to tell “good” guns from “bad” ones: His are “good,” yours are “bad.

In an op-ed where he says he has been a gun owner all his life and owns many firearms, Haynes apparently appointed himself all-knowing god of firearms and concluded that it’s only guns that he doesn’t like that should be banned—not ones of which he approves.

“Civilians don’t need military-style assault rifles, which are nothing but tools for killing people,” he pompously stated. In reality, Haynes is talking about AR-15 style rifles, the most popular rifle in America, that are regularly used by thousands upon thousands of Americans for a wide variety of things other than mass murder—including competition, sport shooting, hunting and self-defense.

Apparently, this purveyor of editorial brilliance forgot to mention any of that. Doh!
