NYT no longer supports the right to die?

KevorkianBan guns because 2/3 of all gun deaths are suicides. Leaving aside what this statistic does to all their and other gun control nut’s horror at the death rate caused by firearms – are there no subways? No bridges? No pills? – no attempt is made to explain how banning “assault rifles” and high capacity magazines will address this perceived problem.

Glenn Reynolds suggests that  “at the NYT, anything is a good reason for gun control,” but that’s the cynic’s view; I prefer to think they’re just morons.

  1. I’m sure they are all for euro style doctor Kevorkian esque”death with dignity”, though. If you are looking for any coherent thoughts from the left, you will be greatly frustrated.

    The anti-gun kooks are in a full court press, trying desperately to get the guns out of law abiding citizens’ hands. Much like the disastrous push for Obamacare in his first term, this is their liberal dream law.

    But why not just ban the George Washington Bridge? You know polluting cars drive across it everyday and people regularly jump off it.

    Love the graphic. That’s a classic!

    From White House Dossier:

    “First Lady Michelle Obama plans to vacation in Aspen, Colorado this Presidents’ Day weekend, separately from her husband, who will land this evening in West Palm Beach for his own down time with the boys.

    Michelle’s separate excursion from the president means that, even as the government prepares to slash spending as the March 1 sequester approaches, taxpayers will be footing the bill for two separate Obama vacations, paying for items like travel and the expensive security and staff entourages that accompany them everywhere.

    What’s more, the Obama’s just completed an exorbitant vacation to Hawaii, from which they returned January 6. The president billed taxpayers for two roundtrip tickets on Air Force One – which costs approximately $180,000 an hour to use – after he returned to Washington mid-vacation to deal with the Fiscal Cliff.

    Michelle spent the entire 17 days in Hawaii, meaning she’s back on vacation at taxpayer expense just weeks after a resting for more than two weeks in paradise.”
