If it Wasn't for Double Standards....
Here is a tedious lecture from the ever shrinking NYT about guns. I just want to point out one main thing but but first this little detail is worth a quick detour.
...the previous deadliest mass shooting in modern American history, in 2016 — when a madman gunned down 49 people in a nightclub in Orlando, Fla.... (Emphasis added)
Is "madman" the new euphemism for Islamic terrorist? It's difficult for me to keep up with lefty PC versions.
OK to the main point.
And one element of Sunday’s mayhem was so senselessly absurd that it has stirred even Republican legislators and their masters in the gun lobby. (Emphasis added).
You see the left thinks that the gun manufacturing lobby absolutely controls the Republicans, making them the slaves to their evil gun manufacturing masters' whims and wishes.
No gun manufacturer even appears on the list of the 50 biggest spenders of lobbying efforts for businesses etc.
Unions spend in excess of $45 Million each year lobbying Democrats. The totally evil and bathed in innocents' blood NRA spends about $3 Million. But the phrase "Democrats and their masters in the Unions" has apparently never appeared in print in the dying elite media. The thought never crosses the Democrat mind, I guess.
I'm thinking that the enormous power of the NRA per dollar spent has something to do with the Citizens United Supreme Court case or something. It's tough to tell what the left truly believes.
