In a Tuesday feature, The New York Times blamed the tragic murder of NYPD officer Brian Moore on lax gun laws in Georgia. In “A Gun From Georgia Is Linked to a New York Officer’s Death, Again,” the Times reports: “Law enforcement officials have long focused on Georgia and neighboring states with looser gun laws as the starting point of a so-called iron pipeline of guns flowing north …” (Emphasis ours.)
The Times also reported that the murder weapon, along with eight other guns that have “turned up in New York City,” were stolen from a pawn shop in Perry, Ga., in 2011.
Stealing guns is also against the law in Georgia. However, hijacking the tragic story of a slain police officer to advance an anti-gun agenda is OK in the Times.
