And such is its first editorial on the front page of its legendary newspaper in nearly a century. In the editorial, the New York Times delivers a tough argument as to why gun control is “direly needed” in America after the dozens-upon-dozens of mass shootings that have occurred in America and continue to happen.
The scathing editorial (Read here) cites guns as “weapons of war, barely modified and deliberately marketed as tools of macho vigilantism and even insurrection”.
Perhaps this just may be the first time, well ever, that the paper has truthfully revealed its stance on gun violence.
“Guns in this country are a moral outrage and a national disgrace” that civilians “can legally purchase weapons designed specifically to kill people with brutal speed and efficiency.”
