Tales From Gun-Fearing Wussies

Hard Hitting Journalism From The Perpetually Clueless

Newsweek runs a "hard-hitting" article called 'Story of a Gun'.

It took seven earnest young reporters to write this expose, and they flogged their message as hard as they could...

Witness stirring phrases such as:

"the almost feminine bulge of the revolver"
"the automatic's sleek, sinister profile"
"a tradition of bloodshed stretching back more than a century"

and my favorite:

"it delivers a fearsome kick"

Which pretty much guarantees they're either lying, or complete pussies.

The whole article seems like it was cribbed from Wikipedia, but who knows. Maybe it does take seven journos to write a simple anti-gun screed.
