MSM bias revealed

Granted, the San Francisco Chronicle doesn't and probably would never purport to be fair and balanced, but it doesn't admit to having an agenda either.

Nonetheless, that agenda is revealed by a look at the story of a photo from the paper's web page:

Zombie was there and shows you how the Chronicle cropped and enhanced the photo to convey a pro-left message and not the true nature of the event here.


Cracking down on gun rights in NOLA

From the AP:
On Thursday, in the city's well-to-do Lower Garden District, a neighborhood with many antebellum mansions, members of the Oklahoma National Guard seized weapons from the inhabitants of one home. Those who were armed were handcuffed and briefly detained before being let go.

"No one will be able to be armed. We are going to take all the weapons," Deputy Police Chief Warren Riley said. (story here)

I don't see any way this can be considered Constitutional. NOLA is not under marshal law so the state constitution should still be in force. Louisiana law doesn't prohibit law-abiding citizens from carrying weapons so why should the rules change when means of upholding the laws are needed most?

Here's the NRA's response.

P.S. -- If Sean Penn gets to carry a gun...

...why can't anyone?
