Conservative Pundit Shoots New York Times, Brags About It On Twitter – Huffington Post
But the Times editorial — the first one to appear on the newspaper’s front page since 1920 — says nothing of the kind.
It merely argues for outlawing “certain kinds of weapons, like the slightly modified combat rifles used in California, and certain kinds of ammunition.”

Baumann also criticized the Times for failing to recognize the political obstacles facing even modest gun safety regulations. The Republicans who control both houses of Congress lean closer to Erickson’s view on gun policy than the paper of record.
