New York Times Betrays Its Firearm Ignorance with ‘Hysterical’ Image Blunder on AR-15 Hit Piece


The AR-15 and its derivatives are, to the establishment media, like a big, scary monster under a kid’s bed.

They’re sinister weapons of war, capable of tearing a human being apart. Unlike any other kind of firearm, they imbue psychotic killers with nearly superhuman powers, allowing depraved lunatics who get their hands on one to kill countless victims. Outlaw the weapon, eliminate the mass shootings. To the establishment media, it’s that simple.

But Times editors simply don’t know much about the weapon, instead attaching undue political significance to it.

“A growing number of American civilians have an unhealthy obsession with ‘tactical culture’ and rifles like the AR-15,” the editorial board wrote.
