This newspaper's front page about gun control is amazing

The New York Daily News has the NRA in its sights.

THE NEW YORK Daily News has been running a series of front pages targeting the National Rifle Association of America (NRA) in the wake of more mass shootings in the US.

Today the paper may have outdone itself with this effort:

On Saturday, the New York Times used its front page to call for tighter gun control. It was the first time the newspaper used its front page for an editorial since 1920.

Last Wednesday husband and wife Syed Rizwan Farook and Tashfeen Malik used assault rifles and semi-automatic handguns to kill 14 people and injure 21 others at a centre for people with disabilities in San Bernardino, California.

One mass shooting a day 

More than one mass shooting (class as an incident which results in four or more people being wounded or killed) occurs each day in the US.

The New York Times notes that, including the shooting in San Bernardino, a total of 462 people have died and 1,314 have been wounded in such attacks this year.

The NRA spends tens of billions each year lobbying politicians against gun control measures.

Here are some of the Daily News’ other covers from the past few days:
