When Gun-Banners Feed Off One Another

posted on September 29, 2015

What’s worse than an anti-gun Canadian whiner writing a book in which he tirelessly spouts off about Americans’ right to keep and bear arms? Perhaps the answer is a gun-hating American newspaper glowingly reviewing said anti-gun tome.

In reviewing Arms: The Culture and Credo of the Gun by A.J. Somerset, Washington Post writer Michael Rosenwald fawned: “But what makes his book entertaining, often funny and ultimately an important addition to the limited canon on guns is that Somerset is a gun guy.” Rosenwald particularly loves that Somerset blames the NRA “for convincing many gun owners that the Second Amendment is ‘the single most important sentence in the entire Bill of Rights.’”

An anti-gun Post writer insinuating that a gun-control proponent is a gun-lover certainly doesn’t make it true. And the fact that both writers hate the Second Amendment doesn’t change the fact that it is the one freedom that protects all others.
