Ever since the transgender school shooter in Nashville, the mainstream media has been on the warpath to impose more point-of-sale gun control…while continuing to encourage Soros-funded prosecutors to weaken the kind of point-of-use gun control that not long ago succeeded in reducing New York City murders to Joe DiMaggio-era levels because it tends to put black criminals behind bars.
Yet, this level of flagrant effrontery requires tremendous narrative discipline. On Monday, the front page of NYTimes.com gave a master class in how it’s done across three contrasting articles.
As you’ll recall, there was a horrific mass shooting in Dadeville, Alabama, late Saturday night, with four young people murdered and 28 injured.
Although The New York Times won’t tell you this, it’s obvious that the Dadeville massacre was a classic example of Sailer’s Law of Mass Shootings:
—If more dead than wounded, the shooter is likely nonblack.
—If more wounded than dead, then the shooter (or often shooters) is likely black.
