Oh wait. Yes they do. All the time. It’s also typical of the New York Slime to demonize victims of their Nanny State policies.
Michelle Malkin notes, “The Times has spilled barrels and barrels of ink decrying the campus rape epidemic. Its opinion writers and reporters call for more money for sexual assault prevention, more government programs and more respect for rape victims. But when a rape victim advocates armed self-defense, where’s the crusading New York Times? Catcalling courageous armed women like a Big Apple street bum.”
