The NYT Opposed The Watch List When It Wasn’t About Guns

posted on December 10, 2015

The Times condemned the list as “a violation of basic rights” that should not be part of a “democratic society premised on due process.” 

Of course, if you’re talking about letting people buy guns, these same editors seem enthusiastic about throwing due process out the window. It’s time for these journalists to admit that in the end, they hate guns a lot more than they love civil liberties.
