New York Daily News hits back at NRA on U.S. gun violence: Top Stories
Here are some of the top stories from Hamilton and beyond
"Everything is Awesome": The New York Daily News sends a message to readers about U.S. gun violence and terrorism. Meanwhile, Donald Trump wants to ban Muslims from entering America. These are a few of our top stories worth your time this morning.
Provincial officials are dropping rabies vaccine bait around Hamilton by hand and by helicopter this week after tests confirmed the first documented case of raccoon rabies in Ontario in nearly a decade on Friday.
The Ministry of Natural Resources is moving quickly to try to contain the spread of the disease. It began by baiting wild animals by hand in the Stoney Creek area Monday. MNR staff are working within a four-kilometre radius of where rabies was discovered after two dogs got into a fight with a rabid raccoon inside an animal control van.
A baby girl who was severely injured in a Caledonia car crash last week has died. Everleigh Haworth-Battice died in hospital on Monday, Haldimand County OPP confirmed.
On Facebook, Everleigh's Grandmother Karen Grace Cosby said that the young girl died "in her mother's arms and surrounded by the love and support of her extended family."
"Everything is awesome."
That's the headline on the front page of Monday's issue of the New York Daily News. The sarcastic caption overlaps pictures of puppies and kittens. It's the tabloid's latest cover after a string of eye-catching headlines since the attacks in San Bernardino.
The headlines target the shooters but also the United States' long-history of mass shootings and the National Rifle Association, forcing the paper's position on America's gun debate.
Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump called Monday for a "total and complete shutdown of Muslims entering the United States" — the most dramatic response yet by a candidate to last week's shooting spree in San Bernardino, Calif., by what the FBI has called a radicalized couple.
The proposed ban would apply to immigrants and visitors alike, a sweeping prohibition affecting all adherents of Islam who want to come to the U.S. The idea faced an immediate challenge to its legality and feasibility from experts who could point to no formal exclusion of immigrants based on religion in America's history.
