The morning after a deadly terror attack in lower Manhattan Tuesday afternoon, journalists in the left-wing media couldn’t get their head around a deadly attack that didn’t involve guns. 8 people were killed and several others injured in New York City yesterday afternoon, after an Islamic radical motivated by ISIS mowed down pedestrians in a bike path, just blocks away from the World Trade Center memorial. Liberal journalists took to Twitter, and some even used their news programs to complain about gun control, and call out President Trump for calling the act terrorism right away, which he didn’t do after Las Vegas.
Nicholas Kristof, columnist for the New York Times and CNN contributor, predictably attributed NYC’s strict gun laws to the relatively low number of deaths, (instead of the police officer with a gun, who shot and apprehended the terrorist.)
Trucks can be lethal, so we regulate them. We require licenses, seat belts, liability insurance, etc. That's the model for gun safety. https://t.co/A3B4CIBqgB

President Trump moving very fast to tighten restrictions on immigrants/refugees after NYC attack.
Still no action on guns post Vegas.
