Thought sarcasm wasn’t very American?
The New York Daily News has printed this puppy-dog, polar bear, kitten and fawn covered edition in response to the US gun control debate.
It says: “To all those that have been offended by hearing the truth about our nation’s gun scourge and the NRA and cowardly pols who think nothing’s wrong: Everything is awesome!”
The cover is a nod to the current gun control debate, sparked by the 355th mass shooting in the US this year, in San Bernardino California.
And it’s the sixth cover in a row that calls for better gun control in the US.
With the San Bernardino shooting declared a terrorist event, opponents of stricter gun controls have argued that it should not be a part of the broader debate.
President Barack Obama has indicated that he intends to seek change. Something that the National Rifle Association and the Republican Party are expected to oppose.
But the New York Daily News is campaigning hard for change.
They also ran this cover on Sunday, December 6:
It directly takes on the NRA, with the claim: “NRA big policies would let the jihadis kill.”
