On 2nd Amendment, Day is no 'defender of the people's rights'
For decades now, The Day's editors have run a hysterical and biased campaign cunningly designed to help deprive Americans of their Second Amendment rights. If there is a shooting anywhere, you print full details of the tragedy, and then milk it for all it is worth. Callously using the victim's injuries and deaths to promote your immoral agenda has become a sickening spectacle that is recognized by many readers as a tragic misuse of your power. It's a violation of your self-described mandate to: "be the champion and protector of the public interest and defender of the people's rights." If you think the public isn't well aware of your thinly disguised tactics, you're sadly mistaken.
Our country now has more firearms than ever before. The result? We are safer than ever. But The Day would have us believe that we will never be safe until the public is completely disarmed, and only terrorists, rapists, criminals, organized crime and thugs have guns (as they always have, laws or not).
One good example of your tactics is your never-ending use of the misleading phrase "gun violence." This is designed to leave the impression that if guns were eliminated, evil people would suddenly go straight. It won't happen.
