Analysis / Bias
In review, 2nd Amendment Daily News publishes news and opinion pieces related to firearms, legislation, and gun defense from an extreme right perspective. Headlines and articles frequently denigrate Democrats and liberal policies such as this: Radical Gun Grabber Exposed in Special Idaho Election and this David Hogg’s Delusions: Wants His Body Used As a Prop If He Dies By Gun Violence. This second story concerning David Hogg is sourced to tweets and states that David Hogg is being funded by Michael Bloomberg and George Soros, which is a false claim. In general, 2nd Amendment Daily News routinely publishes pro-gun propaganda and conspiracies that are not factual.
