New York Times Goes Hysterical After 9-Year-Old Uzi Accident
It was reported earlier this week that a gun instructor in Las Vegas died after being accidentally shot by a 9-year-old girl who lost control of an uzi gun she was using to shoot targets.
“How in the world did a lethal battlefield weapon wind up in the hands of a pony-tailed youngster?” the Times wrote in an editorial. “Where was common sense? What were the parents thinking?”
The Times went after the National Rifle Association, which sent out a tweet shortly after the uzi accident on “7 ways children can have fun at the shooting range.” The Times called it “particularly repugnant.”
The editorial concluded: “Sadly, the public probably has low expectations in the way of greater gun safety laws after the latest outrage, however irresponsible and preventable it obviously was.”
In 2013, the Times published a series of editorials calling for gun control after Sandy Hook elementary was shot up by troubled youth Adam Lanza.
