ODE takes on gun control; predictable results

In case you missed it, ODE Opinion Editor Elon Glucklich took on the 2nd Amendment yesterday in a piece titled “Gun argument lost in divide between sides.” He was spurred in large part by our latest issue, which contained a couple of articles about guns. In fact ol’ Elon mentions us in the lede! But here’s Glucklich mending bridges on the contentious topic:

Like I said before, my narrow-mindedness has prevented me from rationally approaching the issue of gun-ownership. Even now, liberal guilt pangs within me for having written a hundred words without demonizing gun owners as backasswards white trash that threaten our children’s safety.

A more reasonable and considered statement I have never read. Of course, the rest of the article can’t maintain these lofty heights of rhetoric, but it’s still pretty good. See how many factual errors about guns you can find.

  5. Guy says:

    Why do the opinion people of the ODE always have to write ” but I digress” in every piece?

  6. Timothy says:

    Ian – Tells you who’s the real powerhouse, don’t it? Good on you guys!

  7. Ian says:

    I find it funny that the ODE Opinion Editor is using his column to review Commentator articles.

  8. Andy says:

    Ha, I think it was an editorial of his last year that prompted me to write in saying that DPS were cowards, which then a DPS coward wrote in saying how dangerous and honorable the duty of giving drunk scrunt tickets for MIP…

  9. Timbo says:

    I believe the preferred nomenclature is ‘Bassackwards’.

  10. Shadow says:

    I wish he would have contacted me for an interview!

  11. Vincent says:

    Mr. Glucklich is certainly bold when he criticizes others for having the “grammatical flair of an eighth grade book report”, isn’t he?
