Now, The New York Times Has Distorted The Words Of An NFATCA Executive

posted on June 4, 2016

The executive director of the National Firearms Act Trade and Collectors Association (NFATCA) told The Federalist Thursday that The New York Times distorted his words to make it appear that he favors national gun registration. 

In a Tuesday op-ed, writer Alan Berlow claimed the 1934 NFA, which requires registration of automatic weapons, suppressors and short-barreled rifles, is a “model we should build on” for extending such controls to all firearms. He made it appear that NFATCA’s Jeff Folloder supported such a move. 

However, Folloder is having none of it. In a detailed response, he said “Many of my quotes/attributions from that past interview were taken out of context. Berlow, through manipulation and editing, implied that I/we think that a gun registration scheme is effective. It’s not.” 

Following Katie Couric’s misleading edits in her so-called “documentary,” and HBO’s similar twisting of an interview with one of the designers of the AR-15, such shameful hypocrisy from the Times can no longer go unnoticed.
