L.A. Times: Right to Bear Arms More Dangerous Than Terrorism

posted on June 8, 2017

In a long-winded screed that seems to have been written in an attempt to discredit both President Donald Trump and law-abiding gun owners, the Los Angeles Times editorial board insinuated that the right of law-abiding Americans to keep and bear arms is more dangerous than ISIS-inspired terrorists.

Citing the same old misleading “gun violence” statistics parroted by most in the so called “mainstream” media, the editorial board stated, “The Trump administration seems uninterested in the very obvious and omnipresent threat to Americans—our easy access to firearms.” (Emphasis added)

In truth, “easy access to firearms” is a lie by gun-ban advocates to make people think buying a gun is as simple as buying a banana at the local grocery story. Murder, attempted murder and violent assault are already illegal, and federal law requires a background check for all sales by licensed dealers.

What the Times editorial board refers to as “easy access to firearms” is really just the right to keep and bear arms as protected by the Second Amendment.
