The NY Daily News published a powerful editorial yesterday placing the blame for the deaths and injuries from Friday’s shooting in Colorado. Particularly as regards assault weapons, they have it exactly right:
The police chief in Aurora, Colo., said he is confident that massacre gunman James Holmes acted alone. The police chief was dead wrong.
Standing at Holmes’ side as he sprayed bullets and buckshot into a crowded movie theater were Barack Obama and Mitt Romney, a President and a would-be President, who have bowed to the NRA’s dictates and who responded to the slaughter Friday with revolting, useless treacle.
