Well now, this is special:
The ex-Guns & Ammo Magazine writer fired after penning a column in favor of limited gun control is speaking out, bitterly saying, “I’ve been vanished, disappeared. Now you see him. Now you don’t.”
“Compromise is a bad word these days,” Dick Metcalf, 67, told The New York Times of what he believes is the unyielding, give-no-ground ethos adopted by Second Amendment supporters in the U.S. today.
Vanished? Disappeared? Yes, of course, because going from Guns & Ammo to the New York Times is totally being silenced, right?
Now, a word about this “compromise (being) a dirty word” business…
You’re damn right it is, Dick. You know why? Because every single compromise gun owners have made since the National Firearms Act of 1934 has been nothing more than said gun owners giving up more and more of their rights. Give no ground? If gun owners haven’t been giving up enough ground, then what the hell were NFA ’34, GCA ’68, the Hughes Amendment to FOPA ’86, the Brady Law, and the so-called Assault Weapons Ban of 1994 all about? Give no ground? Pardon my french, but fuck that noise. We don’t have any more ground to give. As the ‘Dog said, “Nothing about gun control in this country has ever been “reasonable” nor a genuine “compromise.'”
And oh, how I would love to see someone ask Moms Demand Action for
Seed Corn Gun Sense founder Shannon Watts how she felt about Phil Robertson being suspended from Duck Dynasty. The answer would be quite enlightening, indeed.
