L.A. Times Can't Tell Difference Between U.S. Army, NRA

Hey, they've all got guns, right?

A caption for the photo (bizarrely placed at the end of the article) notes that the photo was taken at a memorial service for those killed at Fort Hood by Muslim Major Nidal Malik Hasan in an apparent act of jihad... which also has nothing to do with the NRA.

I wouldn't say nothing to do with the photo, at least not for the Brady Bunch.

Let's face it, any major event involving a firearm is grounds for the gun banners to go into high dudgeon. They perpetually exploit any possible tragedy to serve their ends.

In the mind of a gunner banner when a lefty like Obama fails to follow suit it simply MUST be due to fear of the NRA. It couldn't have anything to do with the notion that the problem was a jihadist nutbag, not a handgun.

So, take the caption as confirmation of everything we've come to expect from the gun banners and their media cheerleaders.

Fort Hood involved a "no guns zone" that just happened to be on a military base. Maybe it's a of subtle, pro-self-defense, message?

I agree with Rob, if you into account the photo with an Army memorial background and state "NRA" in the title, you've shot yourself (LA Times) in the leg trying the give someone else a pistol wipping.

If the LAT couldn't write incorrect headlines, it wouldn't be able to write any headlines at all.

I understand why some right-wingnut like you wouldn't understand the connection between the headline and the picture.
If Obama wasn't scared by you racist right-wingers that cling to your guns, Obama would not have had to attend any silly military photo op. He could have stayed at the White House and fixed all the problems he inherited from Bush.

Your ignorance is stunning, if you remember , this attack was stopped by a GASP! gun in a no gun zone. If these soldiers were allowed to protect them selfs instead of being disarmed, this would have ended quickly.

Of coarse it doesn't fit your socialist agenda to have people fend for their own lives because you believe in a nanny state and have the gov change your diaper from cradle to grave because you are too weak to fend for yourself.

America was fortunately founded by people with honor who didn't need a babysitter like you do and we are a free nation BECAUSE WE ARE ARMED!

"When the government fears the people there is liberty;
when the people fear the government there is tyranny" Thomas Jefferson.

And I hope Obama is scared to death of our guns, its the only thing that is stopping him from a total removal of our rights and turning us into Europe ( you know the Europe that depends on us defending them because they are so weak)

And Obama has taken a deficit and made it many times larger with NO RESULTS, good job Obama!!.

You go a head and be a weak little socialist ( we know that you won't be satisfied until we are a county of little girls like France) maybe the strong will have mercy on you and toss you a new pair of panties once in a while to keep you happy.

Are you by any chance one of those people who call the guy from BlameBush a liberal elitist, and think that the onion is real?

It would have been nice if you had posted a URL for the LA Times article in question. How hard would that have been?

Come on you guys! This is just plain stupid to blame Obama for this stupid article. Editors were involved. Obama clearly recognized that the people in the pictures might have had guns. Wake up. People with guns! Scary.

Big Bob,

Uh, slick, the entire sentence "Hey, they've all got guns, right?" is a link to the article.

No, but he probably is but I am not familiar with that person and no, I don't read the Onion, prefer to learn from history myself.

Y'all; that gentelman was joking. He had to be.
And we do all have guns. Scary ain't it?
Everybody should have one, by law!
