how to get blacklisted by gun nuts

Banished for Questioning the Gospel of Guns
BARRY, Ill. - The byline of Dick Metcalf, one of the country's pre-eminent gun journalists, has gone missing. It has been removed from Guns & Ammo magazine, where his widely-read column once ran on the back page.

this is kinda nuts. insanely huge backlash against one of their own for even writing about possible compromises.

gun "enthusiasts" threaten to cancel subscriptions, advertisers forcing editors to censor their own content, and a hardcore 2nd Amendment guy blacklisted from everywhere.

i've said it before and i'll say it again; gun psychos are not reasonable people. any mention of any sort of control, no matter how tiny, and they fly into an industry-sponsored rage because, apparently, it's all meant to take everything away from them. wtf?

of course, it's always been one of my favorite ideas - take some of the angriest, paranoid, delusional, and anti-compromise people in the country and arm them to the teeth.

(i realize not all gun owners are this nuts - but they support this industry and all the manufactured paranoia about any little control measure equaling complete destruction of the 2nd Amendment. and they just sit there and let the crazies run the show.)
