Wow. Another Pigs Flying Moment.

You know the whole assault rifle nonsense.  You probably also know that The New York Times hasn't felt the need for honesty for decades.  But someone there has screwed up and actually published the truth about assault rifles.

"On September 13, the 20th anniversary of the signing of the federal assault weapons ban, The New York Times ran a column explaining that the very term "assault weapon" is one the "Democrats created" in the 1990s in order to ban "a politically defined category of guns." 

Moreover, the Times points out that the threat posed by the private ownership of "assault weapons" is mythological in comparison to FBI stats on the actual use of such guns in crime. "
Somebody is probably going to lose their job over this. 

Read the rest here.


  1. Statistically speaking, someone there had to tell the truth, eventually. But it may not happen again for another 20 years.

  2. This is my shocked face... Honesty from THEM??? Did hell freeze over???

  3. Rev, Keads, Rick, NFO - I suspect Rev is right. Probability.
