That didn’t take long

Officially Zumboed. Now, he’ll go on hunting tours with The Nuge to learn his lesson.

    Sorry Jim Bequette, but somehow admitting your mistake and miscalculation for publishing Metcalf’s harmful rubbish, solely for “generating a healthy exchange of ideas on gun rights”, just doesn’t cut it for me.

    I say it’s time for you to just fade away, too, Jim.

    And don’t let the door of freedom and liberty hit you in the ass on the way out…

    The editor-in-chief relieved himself early (in more ways than one) in atonement.

    Follow the [corporate] money: there’s an excellent chance both will land on their feet at other publications owned by the same investment group.

    This teapot — it’s full of tempest!

    I don’t think the Nuge would have him!

    These guys may land at other magazines, but G & A will lose subscriptions and advertising revenue.

    I nonrenewed my subscription years ago, because I tired of reading effusive gun reviews for guns that were prominently advertised in the publication.

    No he won’t. From the apology we learn that he was set to leave in January. This piece is his big middle finger to all of us who care about the RKBA.

    I agree with all of the above. These guys are expert writers. They don’t necessarily have any expertise or enthusiasm for the subject on which they’re writing. It may very well have gone against his grain to pretend to be pro-RKBA but he still churned out his copy. His next job could as easily be reviews of feminine hygiene products.

    As I said in comments to your prior related post, this is not like Zumbo at all. He was a legitimate Fudd, oblivious to anything gun-related or even rights-related that did not have to do with hunting. It cost him big, and he got re-educated to the big picture of how everything -even his beloved bolties- is connected and endangered by those who would disarm us.

    There is no such excuse for what happened at G&A; it was entirely focused on the acceptance of “reasonable restrictions” that are the euphemistic first step in an acknowledged long-term and incremental devotion to banning firearms from public hands and the reinterpretation of 2A to make that possible.

    The columnist and his editor are now history. Woe be unto G&A and any other institution or individual who repeat it. Behold the power of this community and the information superhighway that makes it possible to wield it quickly, decisively and ruthlessly when warranted.

    Really, guys, it’s never a good idea to piss on the electric fence.

    I agree with Metcalf. Here is yet another purge in the name of ideological purity that is disconnected from reality (legal that is) This hurts more than it helps. It’s sad to see the gun people turn on it’s own. Metcalf’s views are very widely held by the public and reflect the state of the law as the SCOTUS has decided over many many years. I am glad Metcalf had the courage to write this.

    Poppycock and balderdash. There is only one reason why the polling question, “should there be more gun control” comes back with support from the public…since many of them are gun enthusiasts they have no notion of the extent laws and regulations already exist and the media lies to them unmercifully about how broad and deep regulation has infringed on gun ownership. It’s nothing to do with idealogical purity, it has everything to do with willful ignorance and misrepresentation by a person that is held out as an “expert” in guns.
