Gun Thread (8-25-13)

ICYMI

Cam Edwards of NRA News was the invited guest on this week's podcast. He left the door open or something and NR's Jim Geraghty slipped in behind him for the podcasting version of a photobomb. There's a good discussion of guns, "gun safety" as gun control and other on-topic material for the gun thread in there, so give it a listen.


Consequences

NRA-ILA has a nice recap of gun manufacturers fleeing gun control states over at the DC.

Additionally, Jim Chelsea Geraghty reports that the Colorado recalls continue apace. Gabby Giffords' illegal-contribution-accepting PAC (DKos link) is supporting the gun-grabbing Dems.

Gun Of The Week - Answer

That's the Remington 3200, with its telltale gap between the top and bottom barrels.


The Atlantic doing what The Atlantic Does

I'm mostly going to link this, since the author at the first link did all the work. First, The Atlantic published a piece written by a convicted felon in which he argues for gun control.

Or did he? Because a comparison of the piece in The Atlantic to the author's profile on an online (prison!) dating site is striking, to say the least.

I guess next we'll find out that Elspeth Reeve, formerly of The New Republic and currently at The Atlantic, is secretly carrying on with the convict.


Coming Attractions

I've received some requests via the tip line for topics that would be better addressed via podcast or YouTube. Both channels are in the works now and should make for a good addition to the thread.


Tips
