Johnson and Feingold on Gun Control

This editorial disguised as a news story by the Wisconsin State Journal made me chuckle. Here’s the opening:

The ever-explosive gun issue creates potential pitfalls for both major-party candidates in Wisconsin’s U.S. Senate race.

For Republican Sen. Ron Johnson, the problem is public opinion, which runs counter to his opposition to gun-control measures being debated in Congress.

For Democrat Russ Feingold, it’s his mottled record on guns, which appears out of step with a Democratic Party that’s increasingly unified in favor of new gun restrictions.

So according to the reporter, the problem with both candidates is that they aren’t anti-2nd Amendment enough. If ONLY they would be more anti-civil rights, they would have a better chance of winning.

    I agree.

    Problem with WSJ and JS is: They don’t have “Editorial” properly labeled in 100 point font on their front pages.

    Please don’t call the writer an author. After he writes his dribble, he is out panhandling at the local Madison bus stop.
    Sadly, this is just the tip of the barrel with reporters and the 2016 election stories and other major stories.
