Mainstream Media Bias?  What Are You Talking About?

      Remember the "assault weapon" ban that expired last year.  Remember the predictions of disaster?

      The New York Times has a story on the results.  Short Version: "Nothing has happened, and that's a bad thing."

      It is sort of interesting to read reporter Deborah Sontag's frantic attempts to spin the story.  Otherwise, forget it.

      Update: JustOneMinute reminds us of the Times editorial of last Sept. 11th.  If you don't understand gun controllers, the first paragraph lays it out for you:
As regressive milestones go, few are as frightful in this new era of homeland security as the decision by Congress and the Bush administration to allow the expiration of the 10-year-old law protecting the public from assault rifles and other rapid-fire battlefield weapons. [my emphasis -- St.O.]

      You see?  It isn't violent people that are a problem, it's those evil guns, which attack people on their own like rabid dogs.

      If they weren't such a danger, they'd be hilarious. (Hat tip: Prof. Reynolds)
