Seattle Times Calls For Gun Ban

posted on December 22, 2015

In an editorial last Thursday—just hours after Democrats introduced The Assault Weapons Ban of 2015 in Congress—The Seattle Times joined a growing list of anti-gun media voices in claiming, “It’s time to ban assault-style weapons, high-capacity magazines.”

Demonstrating its ignorance of firearms technology and its penchant for parroting anti-gun buzzwords, the Times’ editorial board called not only to ban “assault style weapons” (whatever they are) but also “tactical assault-style weapons”—which are equally undefined but surely doubleplus bad.

But before pro-freedom advocates laugh off The Seattle Times and its anti-gun allies in Congress as idiots and political hacks, as Dave Workman points out here, we’d better put both groups on notice: Media who abuse the First Amendment to attack the Second can see their freedoms disappear, too.
