An American blogger has taken a shot at the New York Times in protest of its call for tighter gun controls in the aftermath of the San Bernardino shootings.
Erick Erickson, founder of blog RedState, shared on Twitter an image of the newspaper – complete with seven bullet holes.
Protesting an editorial piece called ‘The Gun Epidemic’, the first to appear on the NYT’s front page since 1920, Erickson said: “The United States suffered its worst terrorist attacks since September 11 and the New York Times' response is that all law-abiding citizens need their guns taken away. Screw them.”
Erickson also attempted to start a social media campaign: “I hope everyone will join me in posting pictures of bullet holes in the New York Times editorial.”
He urged those against stricter gun laws to use the hashtag #EERS. At the time of publication, there were no submissions.
Of course after this Erickson made the rounds of Right Wing news outlets, including Fox News, because those are places where stupidity is revered and celebrated.
