Gun magazine editor forced to resign after running pro-reform column

Jim Bequette, the editor of Guns and Ammo, resigned yesterday after publishing a mildly pro-regulation column. Forced out, Bequeete now begs for forgiveness after his unprecedented attack on freedom.

The offending column, by veteran gun writer Dick Metcalf, was published in the magazine's current December issue, under the headline "Let's Talk Limits". He wrote: "Way too many gun owners still seem to believe that any regulation of the right to keep and bear arms is an infringement. The fact is, all constitutional rights are regulated, always have been, and need to be."

… The criticism amplified displeasure that had built up in gun enthusiast websites for a week. "Anyone who says 'I believe in the Second Amendment but…' does not believe in the Second Amendment," read a typical post at thetruthaboutguns. "They are not friends, they are not frenemies, they are enemies of The People of the Gun."

The increasing cultishness is a dark sign.
