The poor mainstream media are reaching for more and more outlandish stunts to get attention in their increasing desperation to gain online visitors to their websites and the occasional readers of their dead-tree, old-school print versions.
Doubly so for the old-school print magazines.
The latest prime example?
The Philadelphia Enquirer’s hair-brained proposal to re-write the Second Amendment. They go out of their way to show they are a special kind of stupid.
Their proposed language?
“Because a well-regulated National Guard and Reserve, and well-regulated Federal, state, and local public safety departments, are necessary to the security of our free states and our free nation, the rights of citizens, while serving in their capacity in the aforesaid organizations, to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed.”
They are asking for feedback on their proposal. 93% of those oppose their silly scheme.
