Adorable AP selling photo of gun pointed at head of Sen. Ted Cruz-Blumer

6/21/15, "Really, AP? Wire Photo Has Gun Graphic Pointing at Ted Cruz’s Head," Tom Blumer, Bizzy Blog

"The Associated Press currently has a photo for sale at its site showing a graphic of a gun pointing at Ted Cruz’s head. It has been there since early Saturday (6/20) evening.

It would appear that Charlie Neibergall, the person who snapped this photograph, had to patiently wait for the “right” moment
to take the photo in question.

Here is the photo (screen grab here), with the AP watermark (HT Breitbart):

Here is the photo’s caption:

"Republican presidential candidate Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, speaks during a “Celebrate the 2nd Amendment Event,” Saturday, June 20, 2015, at the CrossRoads Shooting Sports in Johnston, Iowa."

It seems worth asking, given that he submitted the photo just before 7:00 p.m. on Saturday (apparently Eastern Time), over 11 hours after the photo was taken at 7:47 a.m., if Niebergall waited to submit the photo until after all the adults, assuming any remain at AP, went home for the rest of the weekend.

I can’t wait to see a similar photo involving leftist Democratic Party 2016 presidential candidate Bernie Sanders, who perhaps to many readers’ surprise, has to a fair extent been a supporter of Second Amendment rights.

There may be a silver lining in this. It’s hard to be sure, but based on this images search at at 11:40 p.m. ET Sunday evening, there is little evidence that subscribing AP outlets have posted the photo at their sites.

Comment: It would be nice if it were a Democrat leftist vs. Republican issue as the author implies. It's an Establishment v Ted Cruz issue. Specifically, an Establishment vs. at least half of American voters. The criminal GOP Establishment nullified both the 2010 and 2014 midterm elections given to them in landslides by Republican voters. Yeah, they showed us who's boss, they "crushed" us. If an entity twice nullifies a massive vote, how is it not the first one you think of for continuing sabotage?
