SUPERCILIOUS BRITS ARE NOT AT THEIR BEST WHEN ADDRESSING THIS TOPIC: Hit Me with Your Best Shot: The Economist’s Epic Fail on Guns. “On April 4, The Economist mocked the NRA and Second Amendment supporters with a column that turned out to be an epic fail because it was built on numbers from a debunked Everytown for Gun Safety study, an erroneous claim that ‘armor piercing’ M855 ammo endangers police, and a not-so-veiled attempt to undercut the push to arm women for self-defense on college campuses.” Bloomberg’s astroturf anti-gun groups are the “Jackie” of the firearms debate — always ready to exploit the class prejudices and political biases of gullible, agenda-driven reporters.
