My Sincere Apology


Just over twenty-four hours ago, I posted a picture of the front page of the New York Times with seven 9mm bullet holes that I had fired into it from top to bottom of their anti-gun editorial.

The ensuing reaction over these past twenty-four hours have convinced me I must apologize. My conscience convicts me that I made a major error.

In all honesty, had I known that these last twenty-four hours would be as hysterically funny as they have been, I would have shot the front page of the New York Times well before today.

These people are insane, filled with rage, and flat out funny. Suggesting that shooting the front page of the New York Times is the equivalent of ISIS destroying Palmyra and killing its citizens has to be the icing on the cake. That the Catholic Democrats twitter account is the one that suggested it makes it even better.

Then there are the truthers. When not holding on to the idea that George W. Bush brought down the World Trade Center, they’re certain I stabbed the New York Times with a pencil because they see what looks like lead on it.

I have not gotten this good a laugh out of the left since they all melted down after I called Wendy Davis “Abortion Barbie.”

I am so sorry. Had I known this would have happened, I would have done it a whole lot sooner.
