The New York Times Wages War on Gun-Owning Rape Victims

Michelle Malkin: “Nasty New York Times editorial writer David Firestone pretends to care about campaign scare-mongering. But what he and his elitist ilk really fear are independent-thinking women who have dared to exercise their First Amendment powers to defend their Second Amendment rights. This week, Firestone took aim at ‘attack ads’ sponsored by the National Rifle Association. The ‘worst commercial,’ he says, ‘features a rape victim describing her assault and accusing’ former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg ‘of wanting to take away her right to defend herself.’ That rape victim has a name and a story Firestone couldn’t even bother to mention. She is Kimberly Weeks… Weeks was brutally raped as a college junior at the University of Northern Colorado in Greeley. … The Times has spilled barrels and barrels of ink decrying the campus rape epidemic. Its opinion writers and reporters call for more money for sexual assault prevention, more government programs and more respect for rape victims. But when a rape victim advocates armed self-defense, where’s the crusading New York Times?”
