The ignorance of most members of the dead tree media never ceases to amaze. Take, for example, columnist Winston Jones who unleashed this little gem: “I’m not sure why there’s so much emotion behind the Second Amendment. There’s never been an effort in the United States, that I know about, of the government to take away citizens’ guns. They are regulated so that felons can’t legally possess them” . . .
Some cities have tougher gun laws than others, but nowhere do I see the Second Amendment in danger. … I believe every state should have a gun law that includes gun safety education. Anybody who gets a carry permit should have to demonstrate they know how to safely and properly use their firearms.
Well Winston, you display an abysmal ignorance of ongoing gun confiscations in New York and California. To say nothing of past gun grabs (post-Katrina comes immediately to mind). And then there are the pending efforts in Connecticut.
All of which just go to show that members of the dead tree media needs to be “responsible” and “should have to demonstrate they know how to safely and properly use their” computers. Of course reportage permits will be issued at the discretion of local LEOs after the applicant has passed a mandated course and
donated to the Sheriff’s re-election campaign demonstrated “good cause” for needing one. That is all.
