Flint Editor Wants To Ban Gun Sales “Until We Get This Right”

posted on February 25, 2016

With a headline worthy of The Onion, the editor of The Flint Journal editorialized Monday that it’s “Time to ban gun sales until we find a way to keep them out of the wrong hands."

Asking, “Where was the good guy with a gun when … ?”, editor Bryn Mickle blamed armed citizens for criminal murder. Concluding that “There are more bad guys doing wrong than there are civilian good guys with guns,” he proposed an “immediate ban on handgun sales until America gets its gun problem sorted out.”

So, because there are not enough armed citizens, Mickle says handgun sales should be halted “or eventually there won’t be anyone left to ignore the problem.” Mickle wrote in January, “Making the water safe is a must, but it won’t matter if no one is left to drink it.” However, his hysteria over Armed-ageddon should be eased by FBI stats that show gun homicides continued a two-decade decline in 2015.
