Guns sell

Allegations an Obama donor is buying up gun magazines to shut them down. I kinda doubt it.

    I doubt it too.

    If he is doing that, all he’ll do is open the market up for a few entrepreneurs to start some new magazines.

    It would seem to me that someone rich enough to do that would understand capitalism somewhat.

    Now, I’d be unsurprised if he started putting in new authors to write stuff so the NY Times can quote them to make gun owners look violent and revolutiony.

    You would think that, but the rules change under crony capitalism. This guy is a barky donor, after all, so having the sense God gave a goose doesn’t really apply, or does it? He might be angling for a “bailout” or some such subsidy. What he’s doing appears stupid to those of us who grew up in this world, but remember, we’re living in bizzaro world now. We’ll wind up paying for the destruction of our own interests.

    If true, it reflects the kind of thinking that I’d expect such a person to have: since control of magazines has worked so well for corraling low-information voters for Democrats, it must work that way for gunnies too.

    Except that the disdain for the “gun rags” seems universal around the Internet, where the real nexus for gun info is, for me anyway.

    So I’d say good. Let them blow their cash.

    I’m with Seerak, if its just the gun rags, let them waste their money. Ive never read one. Uncle offers more content and honesty anyway. OTOH, buying up the outdoor channels is a slightly different matter. I can see them trying to prop up some Zumbos, they’ve tried it before with “sportsmans” anti-2A groups.

    It takes little work to create a new gun magazine. So I don’t see the benefit, even if this silliness was true. There really are only two or three magazines with real brand recognition out there.
