    After Lying For 30 Years, New York Times Admits
    “Assault Weapons Are A Myth”
    In an amazing editorial the NY Times admits that “assault weapon” is a made up term created by anti-gun Democrats to scare low information voters. Stunningly they also admit there’s no proof the “assault weapons” ban had any impact on crime.

    NY already has an AWB so now the NYT is going after semi auto handguns. WA does not so the Seattle times is going after black rifles which they see as the lowest hanging fruit.

    It looks like that editorial came out in September 2014, so no new news. I wonder why we didn't hear about that sooner?

    We just want black rifles, we just want semi-automatic rifles, we just want high capacity handgun magazines, we just want semi-automatic pistols....

    And so it continues until were left with just clubs and rocks...

    Much obliged, autocorrect is killing me, I'm convinced it's a liberal, probably votes democratic too...

    No one that owns a gun reads the NYT.
