The New York Daily News launched a powerful attack on the National Rifle Association using just three words.

The New York Daily News mounted an incredible attack on the National Rifle Association (NRA) using just three words on the cover of Wednesday’s edition of the newspaper.

As Mother Jones reports:

The tabloid’s cover denounced “NRA’s Sick Jihad” in characteristically huge typeface. The story inside accused the gun rights group of tacitly abetting the arming of terrorists by blocking a proposed bill that would make it more difficult for terror suspects to buy guns in the United States. The Denying Firearms and Explosives to Dangerous Terrorists Act of 2015, formally known as H.R. 1076, was introduced in February, and includes a ban on the “sale or distribution of firearms or explosives to any individual whom the Attorney General has determined to be engaged in terrorist activities.”

The article began with; “”The NRA—and their gun-loving Republican cohorts—are refusing once more to stop terrorists intent on getting armed in the U.S.A.”

The bill in question, H.R. 1076, was originally introduced during the administration of President George W. Bush back in 2007, but has never been signed into law.
