Take this woman at Ms. Magazine, a self-professed board member of the anti-gun Brady Campaign:
I needed help. I drove to where a police officer had pulled over another driver. Now, writing this, I realize that rolling up on an on-duty cop with a handgun in tow might not have been fully thought through.
I told him I just bought a gun, had no clue how to use it. I asked him to make sure there were no bullets in the magazine or chamber. He took the magazine out and cleared the chamber. He assured me it was empty and showed me how to look. Then he told me how great the gun was and how he had one just like it.
The cop thought I was an idiot and suggested I take a class. But up to that point I’d done nothing wrong, nothing illegal.Sheesh. You couldn't make this stuff up.
If this woman really wanted a gun, and had any sense, her first move would have been a safe handling course, then some range time with a qualified instructor. Once she's handled several types of handguns, choosing one for purchase might be a logical next step.
The writer's trying to mock gun owners and gun ownership. But she's only making herself out to be fool. And a dangerous one.
Stupid is as stupid does. You've just had a candid glimpse into the progressive mindset.
