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.

Let us use EOs? That’s not quite how executive orders work, is it?
