    first, dear press group: it is unconstitutional to demand that carrying guns be made illegal … and secondly, criticizing you is perfectly legal … if YOU have a problem with that, congratulations, YOU have a problem … nobody else does …

    That did not sound like a threat against journalists . . . it sounded like a promise to news organizations that they will now fact check the fact checkers — journalists. And, I say that as a member of the press. Just goes to show how thin-skinned the press as really gotten. Makes me sad.
