Rolling Stone meets expectations on firearm advice.
Kristen Gwynne is having a bad day. I’m sure it started out well enough. Her byline appeared on a piece for Rolling Stone’s website. Most of us would be thrilled to be featured in a huge publication, even if it is a crappy magazine with questionable cover choices. I imagine she woke up basking in the euphoric glow of what I refer to at my house as “post day.” Your piece is up. It’s being shared, getting hits. A couple of tweets can turn into dozens just like that. You check back, read the comments, and delight in your own clever banter with your fans. Ahhhh, the life of a writer.
20,000 “likes” and more than 1,300 comments later, Ms. Gwynne is the laughing stock of the internet. After writing what can only be described as the least informative, factual, articulate, or comprehensive piece of journalism in the history of ever, Gwynne is likely hiding under a rock.
The headline looms ominously; “The 5 Most Dangerous Guns in America”. What could they pick? The AR-15? AK-47? Anything with “assault” in its name? I wasn’t even close. In the interest of saving you five minutes of your precious time and perhaps a few brain cells, I give you The 5 Most Dangerous Guns in America:
5. Derringers (Seriously)
