Vox Blames 'Rural and Suburban White Guys' for School Shootings :: 04/17/2019

Climate writer for Vox, David Roberts, doesn’t know much about climate science. He doesn’t know the 97% consensus was invented by an Australian cartoonist with no scientific or journalistic experience. He doesn’t know that throughout human and pre-human history- the climate has always changed. He certainly won’t tell you that his “journalistic” specialty was called Global Cooling in the 1970s.

NM Editorial Notes Big Problem In Universal Background Checks :: 04/15/2019

Universal background checks are all the rage with the anti-gun left these days. Nevermind that not a single high-profile criminal appears to have gotten a firearm through a face-to-face transfer that I can recall, nor the fact that we haven’t seen a single one get a firearm in such a way that couldn’t have gotten it with a standard background check. They’re still a major focus of the anti-gun left.
