Farago in the Washington Times

Posted on the 29 July 2011 by Mikeb302000
That's the Washington Times not to be confused with the Washington Post.
It was founded in 1982 by Unification Church founder Sun Myung Moon, and until 2010 was owned by News World Communications, an international media conglomerate associated with the church. The Times is known for presenting socially and politically conservative views.

Robert Farago, of course, is the leader of that merry band of gun-rights warriors called the Armed Intelligentsia of TTAG.
There's only one place on the internet that exceeds Robert's zeal in attacking the ATF.  That's the Sipsey Street Irregulars. Mike V. has practically turned his blog into a dedicated propaganda machine, even some of his fanboys have complained.
Farago uses his usual linguistic gifts to make his points, "the Nixonian cover-up," "the simmering scandal," "ATF’s ideological corruption," "moral abyss," "bloated bureaucracy," and so on and so on.
He had this to say too:
Displaying its ongoing antipathy to the right to keep and bear arms, the ATF has just pushed through an executive order creating an unconstitutional long-gun registry. The agency says the new regulations will help it catch smugglers trying to secrete American weapons into Mexico - the same crime it enabled and encouraged under Operation Fast and Furious.
By "unconstitutional long-gun registry," is he referring to the law requiring that multiple sales of guns like AR-15s be reported? Wouldn't such a law be one of the best ways to identify gun smugglers and straw purchasers? Wouldn't investigating people who buy more than one of those items make sense?
Well, apparently not to Robert Farago and his friends. To them, misrepresenting these attempts as "creating an unconstitutional long-gun registry, is part of their strategy to resist common sense gun control regulations.
What's your opinion? Is Robert Farago one eloquent son-of-a-gun, or what? Do you think he does a bit of spinning though, is he guilty of manipulating?
What's your opinion? Please leave a comment.
