Where’s the New York Times going with this headline? Is it supposed to shock or anger gun owners? Because, it doesn’t:

Yes. The Second Amendment exists for the very purpose of preventing persecution. It’s the f*cking point.
The Founders did not amend the Constitution out of fear they wouldn’t be able to shoot clay pigeons. https://t.co/b3gI2a0X36

Was this supposed to be an edgy headline? Americans, like these in the article, exercise their second amendment rights to protect themselves all the time. https://t.co/LOsdd0iOR6
