Paul Barrett [far left] is bloomberg.com‘s gun guy. I don’t envy the man his job. While Barrett’s book on GLOCK revealed his enthusiasm for background checks (i.e. “closing the gun show loophole”), ammunition magazine capacity limits and “ballistic fingerprinting,” the man’s not drunk fully of the boss’s civilian disarmament brew. Barrett knows that no gun control law will stem the tide of firearms-related violence in Chicago. Nor will gun buybacks do anything whatsoever to reduce firearms-related crime. And he’s not afraid to say so. Why he’s not afraid for his job is anyone’s guess. I reckon it’s because Bloomberg hasn’t noticed yet. Meanwhile, score one for common sense commentator control.
