True to form, the New York Daily News isn't holding back in their June 13 edition, and is blaming the NRA for the terrorist attack at a gay nightclub in Orlando.

When someone rapes a woman, we put the blame squarely on the rapist. When someone stabs or strangles someone, the blame is placed on the murderer. Yet for some reason, when a man who confesses allegiance to ISIS goes on a rampage and murders 50 people at a nightclub, it's not the shooter's fault--it's the NRA's.
