NBC news prez anti-gun.

The latest example of the anti-gun attitudes of this country's news executives is a recent guest editorial in The Wall Street Journal by Michael Gartner,former editor co-owner of the Ames, Iowa, Daily Tribune and president of NBC News in New York.

Headlined "Tell Me a Good Reason for Handguns," the column began with Gartner declaring, "This is another of those columns about guns. I'm against them.

"I'm especially against handguns..." After spending most of the column citing Handgun Control Inc. statistics and advocating passage of the Brady Bill with its nationwide seven-day waiting period for handgun purchases, Gartner arrived at his real objective when he stated, "That doesn't seem too much too ask (passage of the Brady Bill).

"Indeed, it isn't enough. In fact, only police and soldiers -- and, maybe, licensed target ranges -- should have handguns. No one else needs one."

In other words, passage of the Brady Bill would just be a nice first step toward the true goal of banning the private ownership of handguns.
