The 5 Most Dangerous Guns in America
Rolling Stone, by Kristen Gwynne

Original Article

Posted By:scottc, 7/15/2014 11:46:15 AM

Contrary to what those who defend the right to own high-powered assault rifles believe, not all guns are created equal. Due to a combination of availability, portability and criminal usage the following five types of guns are the country's most dangerous. School Shootings: Widely Reported Tragedies Since 2000 - Using firearm trace data from the ATF, as well as FBI homicide records, we determined the types of guns most often recovered from crime scenes and/or used in murders. The numbers are stark: According to the FBI's 2012 Crime in the US data, nearly 70 percent of homicides for which the FBI received weapons data involved the use

Comments:
No....this is not a parody or something from The Onion. The author of the article is dead serious and I was rolling laughing.

In the very first "dangerous gun" I noticed two interesting deceptions. First, pistols are not a "model" of gun, but rather a category of gun. Second, the author goes from referring to the number of pistols found at crime scenes to the percentage of pistols sold which are Glocks in a way that will lead the careless reader to think that Glocks are found at a large percentage of crime scenes without actually providing any data to back that up.

And it´s obvious that the closest Kristen has ever been to a firearm is the stock photos in the article.

And this passes as ´Journalism´? My first-grader grandson could do a better job of writing than this drivel...

(Post not accepted because of bad language; I shall try again). A pistol is defined by a fixed barrel and its short stock? OMG, with a double action revolver, you don´t have to manually c*ck the hammer before pulling the trigger! People who know nothing about guns shouldn´t be able to legislate against them.

Clearly this is the stupidest reporter in America. This is exactly like saying that the five kinds of cars most often involved in accidents are sedans, hardtops, convertibles, roadsters, and pickup trucks.

The "Percentages of Glocks" was referring directly to their use/adoption by "Law Enforcement"..is THAT a particular "Danger"?

Guns in the hands of liberals
Guns in the hands of gang members
Guns in the hands of drug dealers
Guns in the hands (or minds) of "journalists "
Guns in the control of socialist/communist/fascist leaders.
That´s five, did I miss any?

I had a dangerous gun once. It didnt work right. Then I fixed it. Now it isn´t dangerous anymore.
Why is it a magazine with a history of promoting the rock and roll/drug lifestyle feel qualified to talk about guns? Does Guns and Ammo magazine have articles about Led Zeppelin?
Thirdly, what is it about derringers that causes her to move into a paragraph about "assault rifles"?
Yeesh. The ignorance never ends with libbies.

I thought the very last picture of the teary-eyed candle holders was the most dangerous. They make such pathetic targets for a deranged killer. Hope at least one of them has a concealed carry weapon to protect the rest of them.

If I were anti-gun, I would be cringing that this idiotic illogical article tried to represent my side of the argument.

But those of us that support the Constitution know there are no logical arguments for massive gun control, so this is probably as "good" as they can do. Pretty pathetic.

On the positive side, as lie-beral as the readership of this rag has become, I didn´t see a single comment after the article supporting gun control. Just a lot of people pointing out the obvious -- that this editorialist is an idiot!!!

Rolling Stone has always leaned pretty far left but there used to be a time they had standards. That time has passed, evidently.

The entire article can be summed up in one sentence: The 5 [sic] Most Dangerous Guns in America Are All of Them.

The author is ignorant about firearms and advocates citizen disarmament. No doubt she is equally ignorant about why that´s an extremely bad idea.

Reads like a primer on guns for children. Considering Rolling Stone´s readership it´s probably appropriate though.

Funny, they just named the five most common guns and went with that. I am sure the author despises guns and wouldn´t touch one. A good thing since anybody that ignorant of guns should not be allowed within ten feet of one.

Wow, imagine that. Pistols are popular among handgun owners. (Why did this dunce of an author find it necessary hyphenate "handgun-owners")?

What? The writer (whose perspective is below fourth grade level) left out the Maxim Gun, named, I think, after some really potent instant coffee. Really, really potent. Hilaire Belloc in his poem "The Modern Traveller":

Whatever happens, we have got
The Maxim gun, and they have not

No Gatling gun, either. Clyde Barrow´s weapon of choice, the .30 caliber BAR, was unaccountably left out as well. Kristen´s list is about the same as cars being defined, not by model, but by type, e.g., sedan, coupe, station wagon, convertible, limo, flat Geico toy car with 2-D lizard. Not much help.

Here is what I think happened; the editor rushed into Kristen Gwynne´s office and shouted, "We just lost the article on How women who live dangerously should exercise! That leaves us 17" os space that has to be filled by press time, which is in eight minutes. What can you slap together by then?"

K: "How about something that might be bad about guns?"

E: (Smiling and a quick wink) "You´re my Gal, Kristen! I knew you could do something right for a change- Do it!"

K: "Yeppers...I have Wikipedia ri-i-ight here on my smart phone and a little copy, paste...and ....and...print, there! It´s on the way to the press room now, Chief."

E: "Great Kristen--- by best Gal."

K: "chief? Uh, your so sexist with that ´Gal´ stuff...but, it´s okay, cuz your such a lib."

Former President George W. Bush put together a 48 member coalition for the Iraq War in 2003. 40 of those members supported military operations and 37 provided some number troops. In April 2003, the list was updated to include 49 countries, though it was reduced to 48 after Costa Rica objected to its inclusion. Of the 48 states on the list, three contributed troops to the invasion force (the United Kingdom, Australia and Poland). An additional 37 countries provided some number of troops to support military operations after the invasion was complete. Despite these numbers the liberal media continues to push the lie

Bush is a false equivalence and that Democrats don’t bear culpability for the comparatively fewer number of bills being passed by Congress and signed into law. “Let me just say that any of this equivalence, both sides, this or that, no — we never treated President Bush the way they treat President Obama,” she said Monday on MSNBC. “It’s no use whining about it; we just have to get people out to vote” and make people aware there’s an election this

The Department of Labor coordinated with the White House on whether or not to release hidden portions of former Labor Secretary Hilda Solis’ schedule as Solis battled an FBI investigation into her illegal fundraising for President Obama. New emails provided to The Daily Caller from the nonprofit legal research firm Cause of Action show the White House thanking the Department of Labor for “flagging” a public information request for “withheld” portions of Solis’ schedule. The White House then asked for the name of the conservative group making the request — information that Labor officials were eager to give up. As TheDC previously

There’s a lot of competition for Barack Obama’s biggest lie. The man who could assure the American public with a straight face over thirty times that they could keep their doctor under his health plan, when he knew that to be completely false, is one hellluva fibber. But execrable as that serial prevarication may have been, it doesn’t hold a proverbial candle to his most recent whopper — that the Islamic State is not Islamic — not to mention its corollary, or perhaps subsidiary lie, that real religions do not indulge in murder. Islam has been doing that pretty much straight

Is a mutiny happening around President Obama? It appears possible that the president may not have made two of his most recent decisions with complete free will. The announcement that he would delay his immigration initiative until after the election and his formal announcement that the United States would take military action against the Islamic State could have been coerced. Maybe Democratic leaders in Congress and a few members of the Obama team have had it. Could it be that, after President Obama briefed Democrats in Congress on the immigration plan, they balked? Maybe the president was told that, if he
