The New York Daily News obviously decided to give Dems pushing a false “blame the NRA” narrative after the horrific mass shooting at a Florida high school a BIG assist. This is absolutely disgusting:
The Florida shooting suspect was on an NRA-funded school rifle team https://t.co/6pZqrtZMRD

The club was an air rifle team and was hosted by the ROTC. Amazing smear here considering JROTC students helped other students out of the school. This is really amazing. https://t.co/9XesQ7izWy

The air rifle team was part of the school's Junior ROTC program but I suppose click bait is what it's all about. I guess "trained by Junior ROTC" doesn't have that certain frisson. (And not to put too fine a point on it, Junior ROTC kids at that school protected fellow students.) https://t.co/MU3BspbLO8

He joined a JROTC program in school which is for kids who want to join the military later on in life. You didn't mention that other kids in this program helped protect some of their classmates. By this logic US taxpayers also trained him cause this is a public school program

It’s completely shameless and pathetic spin on the part of the Daily News and they should apologize. Meanwhile, the paper is getting an avalanche of backlash and they deserve it:
One of the most vile, misleading headlines of our time. The term “Hack” is way too good for you

It's the NRA's fault he joined the ROTC.

You CAN write headlines like this that mislead your readers, but HOW do you live with yourselves?

So was one of the children who died defending his classmates, you scum sucking smear merchants. https://t.co/D8neIquGBL

You are not news, you are propaganda.
He was in JROTC before his expulsion, the funds were for JROTC.

Good God, I didn't even realize this was the Daily New's front page today. Sometimes media cynicism can be so breathtaking that it becomes affirmative malice. pic.twitter.com/GECBwW7eXX

Rare is the week that journalism does a good job to bolster its credibility, but goddamn this week has been such an abysmal display of dishonesty and incompetence. https://t.co/7COMSFCmHp
