NYT Hates NRA Museum Because Of Concealed-Carry Reciprocity?

posted on April 26, 2017

A nonsensical op-ed in The New York Times torturously tries to connect two completely unrelated gun topics, proving the newspaper’s credibility has hit rock bottom. 

Editorial board member Francis X. Clines opens the piece by attacking the NRA National Firearms Museum for including guns and memorabilia in its exhibits. (Duh.) “… it is the gallery devoted to Hollywood and its guns and good-guy shooters that best illustrates the power of fantasy now driving the modern gun rights debate,” Clines pontificates. 

You have to read further to learn the purpose of the piece, however, and it’s not related to the museum. “The NRA’s latest priority is rooted in its ultimate fantasy that society will be safer if ordinary Americans are allowed to routinely pack a pistol,” Cline whines. “The organization is pushing Congress to pass a national concealed-carry reciprocity law to make it easier for people with state concealed-gun permits to carry their firearms nationwide.” 

Next time, Cline should just title his op-ed, “I hate guns, the NRA and concealed carry.” At least then readers would know what the piece was about before wasting their time on it.
