"Some of you may know of the stories and legends surrounding the famous “Wild West” gunfighter, lawman, and Army scout, William 'Bat' Masterson. What you may not know is that in 1909 the Savage Arms Company convinced Mr. Masterson to write a guide to defensive gun use as part of a promo for their new 'Savage pistol. The pistol, while advanced for its time, was overshadowed by that other pistol that god gave to John Moses Browning in 1911. As a result, the Savage Automatic has since been relegated to dark recesses in the safes of hardcore antique-gun collectors. The book, The Tenderfoot’s Turn, was lost as well… until now. ..."

"[Redacted] exercised his constitutional right to bear arms when he carried his shotgun to work with him at the Washington Navy Yard where he proceeded to shoot 12 other people before the police shot him ... The pattern is becoming all too familiar: You get ticked off at someone or something; you get yourself a really big gun that a lot of people are spending a lot of money and time to ensure you can purchase as easily as possible; you vent your anger by shooting a lot of people; and you get put out of your misery when the police shoot you.

"Never mind they were actually quoting from a 1930s poem often attributed to the German poet Bertolt Brecht, who was attacking pacifists and speaking out for bravery. It served their purposes, so long as the rest of the poem wasn’t recited. And, as I said, people were pseudo informed."

"Two more thoughts about gun control: one practical and immediate, the other more abstract and academic ... The practical comes from a recent discussion with my father, about, of all things, shooting raccoons. The Gopnik family seat, such as it is, is ... a farm in remote rural Ontario, where my parents live surrounded by crops, animals, and pests—and indeed by farmers who need and use rifles. When I was talking to my father there last weekend, we discussed a recent raccoon infestation, and how he had called on a neighbor with a rifle to hightail it over to shoot the five unfortunate masked marauders beneath the back porch. ... My dad is actually a pretty good shot, and could have done it himself—but he had not finished the paperwork for his gun." ...
