The ignorance of journalists when it comes to guns is astounding. What’s even more astounding is when they tell the rest of the world what to think based on their ignorance. Here they profile the phony baloney religious group “Heeding God’s Call.”
In 2008, Mayors Against Illegal Guns and Wal-Mart created the Responsible Firearms Retailer Partnership, which asks stores selling weapons to follow 10 steps, including background checks of every customer and accepting only valid IDs.
Such sound rules should be incorporated into gun laws. But National Rifle Association lobbyists have managed to prevent that in Pennsylvania.
Can you remember the last time you bought a gun in Pennsylvania, particularly a handgun, without a background check and valid ID? Yeah, I can’t either. Maybe repeated insults to the intelligence of its readers is one of the reasons the Philadelphia Inquirer is seeing it’s subscribers melt away.
