《紐時》頭版社評促槍械管制 惹保守派不滿 發起槍擊社評行動

2015/12/7 — 15:09

美國加州聖貝納迪諾早前發生槍擊案,《紐約時報》及後在頭版發表社評要求收緊槍械管制,是該報近百年來首次將社評刊於頭版上。不過有保守派的評論家就向該《紐時》頭版連開多槍,並將滿佈彈孔的報章上載到Instagram上,表明反對槍械管制。

《紐約時報》12月5日刊出的一篇社評,言辭強硬地形容國民可以輕易、合法地買到殺人武器,是整個民族的恥辱。文章又批評美國當局一方面為槍擊案受害者祈禱,另一方面卻無情地拒絕對大屠殺的武器作出基本限制,並且用對抗恐怖主義的論點分散輿論焦點。

不過槍械管制的問題,在美國國內亦未有共識。保守派評論家Erick Erickson就在Instagram上載相片,表示自己向《紐約時報》的社評連開多槍,又留言批評:「這就是我對《紐約時報》社評的看法。美國正面臨自911後最嚴重的恐襲,而《紐約時報》卻要求所有守法的公民交出槍支。去他們的。」

This is what I think of the New York Times editorial today. The United States suffered its worst terrorist attacks since September 11 and the New York Times' response is that all law-abiding citizens need their guns taken away. Screw them. The New York Times wants you to be sitting ducks for a bunch of arms jihadists who the New York Times thinks no doubt got that way because of the United States. It should be striking to every American citizen that the New York Times believes the nation should have unfettered abortion rights, a right not made explicit in the Constitution, but can have the Second Amendment right curtailed at will though it is explicitly in the Constitution. Again, we have suffered the worst terrorist attack in more than a decade and the New York Times believes now we must have our rights taken away as a response to terrorism. I hope everyone will join me in posting pictures of bulletholes in the New York Times editorial. Send them your response. Use the hashtag for my radio show and I may give you a shoutout. #EERS #glock #pewpew #2A #guns @shotspotguns

Erickson又呼籲網民響應他的行動,用手槍射穿《紐約時報》頭版社評,並將相片上載到社交網站上。部分網民留言支持,但亦引發不少人「惡搞」其呼籲。
