Tim Worstall

Tim read a strange article in the New York Times and critizes that he did not understand the article. The NYT mentioned the efforts of the gun lobby „to keep up the pressure, public and private, after the near-disaster in Times Square.“ Why that, Tim wonders: „wouldn’t it make more sense to claim that propane tanks and fertilizer should be controlled“.

No, it would not, because the writers of the Bill of Rights carelessly neglected to state the second amendment properly and forgot to mention propane tanks and fertilizers. So the only problem in America is the gun lobby. After all that is lucky, isn’t it? Otherwise you’d have to deal with renitent farmers like France has to.

So the NYT simply hinted to the strange confidence of the gun lobby which is hardly linked to the tempted bomb attack. Or maybe it would help to simply shoot anyone who parks a car somewhere? So Tim if you don’t understand the New York Times, please don’t critize but try reading a more simple paper instead.
