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

posted on December 10, 2015

Breitbart points out that The New York Times editorial board’s newfound fervor for banning all gun sales to individuals on the FBI’s Terrorist Watch List doesn’t stack up against the outrage that the paper previously expressed about the list’s very existence. 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.
