Washington, DC – -(AmmoLand.com)- Give this to the editorial board of the Washington Post: They made it clear what they think of those who wish to exercise their Second Amendment rights when trying to salvage the nomination of David Chipman. But by doing so, they did Chipman – and themselves – no favors. If anything, they justify the opposition to his confirmation.
Let’s make it clear, the Washington Post, in pushing this avowed enemy of the Second Amendment, has made their animus – one Chipman shares – towards Second Amendment supporters clear. We’re “gun obsessives” with a “toxic obsession with firearms” who also suffer from a “pervasive denial of reality.”
Let’s lay it out – things like Operation Chokepoint and Operation Fast and Furious are not, to use Post’s turn of phrase, “cockamamie conspiracy theories.” They were outright abuses. The latter got a Border Patrol agent killed. The former has become a prototype for the financial blacklisting that could be a back door to various gun bans, something pushed by the New York Times.
Tack on the underhanded tactics of the Cuomo-James regime in New York and the track record of hostility Chipman has shown to those who defend their Second Amendment rights via use of the First Amendment, and it should become patently obvious that it is the Washington Post editorial board who seems to be denying the reality of Second Amendment politics.
Letting their bigotry show is bad enough, but the Washington Post editorial board compounded it with the “weapons of war” lie regarding the AR-15. They even go so far as to say, “AR-15s are unnecessary for hunting, protection or any other legitimate civilian application, and their popularity reflects poorly on supposedly responsible gun owners.”
