NY Daily News calls Wayne Lapierre a terrorist & accuses NRA of "sick gun jihad against America" Public outrage over continued mass shootings in America has spilled over into the mainstream in dramatic fashion. This will be the front page of the New York Daily News on Friday, December 4: This is remarkable outrage from a major daily newspaper, however sensational. For the paper is not only calling out the media’s bigoted obsession with Muslims while ignoring white terrorism, it explicitly places complicity for such terrorism at the feet of the NRA. Indeed, the front page calls Wayne Lapierre a “terrorist” and accuses the NRA of a “sick gun jihad against America in the name of profit.” The paper’s editorial, “Making Mass Murder Easy,” expands upon this notion of just how vulnerable the gun lobby has made US citizens. This outrage from the Daily News comes after Republicans in the Senate today voted down a gun control measure which would have barred sales of guns to suspected domestic terrorists. While the vote was symbolic ― the voted down amendment was attached to a health care bill with no chance of passage ― it signaled that Republicans are willing to back the NRA at every deadly turn. Of course, this isn’t surprising, given that the NRA spent $34 million in 2014 to block all forms of gun control, including six- and seven-figures to many of those Republican senators who voted against gun control today, It’s remarkable that the GOP seems to be supporting policies which one imagines ISIS would champion as well: 1) the rejection of Syrian refugees fleeing terror, and 2) the rejection of bills which restrict firearm access, even to domestic terrorists. The New York Daily News seems to agree, and calls out one entity as more responsible than any for this “sick gun jihad against America” ― Wayne Lapierre’s NRA.
