As Twitchy reported, following the gun massacre at the Inland Region Center in San Bernardino, Calif., the New York Times published its first front-page editorial since 1920, arguing for a ban on certain guns that would “require Americans who own those kinds of weapons to give them up for the good of their fellow citizens.” Confiscation would have sufficed, but “for the good of their fellow citizens” has such a non-fascist ring to it.
Martin O’Malley, who really should drop out of the race for president for the good of his fellow citizens, decided to sign on publicly with the New York Times, declaring in a tweet Friday night that an executive order was the way to go — once he’s president, that is.
I agree—this is a "moral outrage & nat'l disgrace." If Congress doesn't have courage to act, let's use EOs. -O'M https://t.co/eIct6AlAKw

Let us use EOs? That’s not quite how executive orders work, is it?
@ByronYork Just UNBELIEVABLE!!!

@MartinOMalley You must secretly be a tool of Big Firearms, because I guarantee you just boosted their sales.

@MartinOMalley How about starting in the neighborhoods of your own city that rioted this year?

@MartinOMalley I'd like to see an asshat such as yourself go to B'more residents and tell them to hand in weapons!

@MartinOMalley you should totally go door to door in downtown Baltimore and demand people hand over their guns to you
