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.

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.

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."

In her just-released memoir, 27 year-old "Girls" star Lena Dunham claims that as a 19 year-old Oberlin College student in Ohio, she was raped by a college Republican. In the first chapter that addresses the encounter, Dunham describes the "ill-fated evening of lovemaking" as awkward and hollow. The most sensational moment comes from the fact that "Barry" wasn´t wearing a condom. In the next chapter, Dunham backtracks with the claim that she´s an "unreliable narrator" and accuses "Barry" of rape: [I]n another essay in this book I describe a sexual encounter with a mustachioed campus Republican as the upsetting but

A recently retired Secret Service agent told MailOnline on Thursday that former director Julia Pierson´s resignation will be welcomed by the agency´s rank-and-file because ´people in the service thought she was a joke from Day One.´ He attributed her swift fall from grace to a cadre of ´p***ed off agents who had had enough´ of feeling disrespected by the service´s first female director. ´Putting her in charge was part of the [Obama] administration´s push to feminize the service after the "hookergate" nightmare,´ the agent said, referring to agents who were fired after patronizing prostitutes during a security-check trip to Colombia

Deadly, irrational, and determined, the intruder snuck across a weakened perimeter. Eluding capture, the intruder was detained only after missteps and close calls. The spin began soon after the threat was isolated. Information was selectively leaked. Half-truths and untruths were uttered. Responsibility was avoided; privileges and credentials asserted; authority reasserted. Trust us. Remain calm. Don’t panic. This is the template of recent events. A mental case jumps the White House fence. He makes it to the East Room before he’s tackled by an off-duty Secret Service agent. Initial statements turn out to be misleading or false.

It’s the “Dawn of the Planet of the Apes.” A New York appeals court next week will consider whether chimps should have the same rights as human beings. The extraordinary proceeding is the result of a lengthy battle by animal-rights activists who argue that animals with human qualities — including chimps — are entitled to human protections, including freedom from captivity. Steven Wise, part of the Nonhuman Rights Project, which is leading the effort, will have to convince a panel of Albany appellate judges that a chimp name Tommy is a “legal person” to get him moved from a cage

President Obama was at Northwestern University on Thursday to deliver an economic speech that, he and his team hoped, would lay out the case for why the public is better off today than they were six years ago -- even if they didn´t feel it in their everday lives. Instead, Obama just gave every Republican ad-maker in the country more fodder for negative ads linking Democratic candidates to him. Here are the four sentences that will draw all of the attention (they come more than two thirds of the way through the speech): "I am not on the ballot this

What on earth is an ohbee-guynee? Apparently it is a weird Obamaspeak pronunciation of OB/GYN (pronounced oh-bee-gee-why-en). For the president’s benefit, let me specify that means a doctor who delivers babies and takes care of the lady parts. When President Obama announced the departure of Eric Holder from his position as attorney general, he also mentioned his “good friend,” the AG’s wife, Dr. Sharon Malone, and he called her an “ohbee-guynee.” (snip) it almost seems as though someone raised in a fantasized USSR training camp for deep cover agents was inserted into the identity of Barack Obama and loosed upon

It is the stuff that nightmares are made of, and day by day it is getting worse. The Ebola epidemic, says Dr Margaret Chan, director-general of the World Health Organisation (WHO), is now “the greatest peacetime challenge” since the Second World War. Yet her own organisation’s tardiness, partly caused by cuts, together with reductions in--and misuse of--funds elsewhere, are largely responsible for Ebola spiralling out of control. [Snip] It’s just the beginning. At present the numbers of people infected are thought to be doubling in under 30 days--and the blue-chip US Center for Disease Control and Prevention predicts that, if Ebola

Why, she asked, wasn’t he being better protected by his Secret Service agents?

ATLANTA — Texas, America’s second-most populous state behind California, saw 13 of its last abortion clinics turn away women on Friday, after a federal appeals court upheld a law that practically guarantees that only a handful of clinics will remain open in the state. The strictest-of-its-kind Texas law requires abortion providers to build hospital-grade facilities and obtain sometimes impossible-to-get hospital admitting privileges. After signed into law last year by Gov. Rick Perry (R), the law forced most of the 41 clinics operating to close. Thursday’s ruling wiped out a brief victory this summer for abortion rights proponents,

In a speech in Boston, First Lady Michelle Obama left behind talk of exercise and school lunches, exchanging it all for bald politics by claiming that under her husband the US economy is now better off "by almost every economic measure." The First Lady appeared at the Strand Theater Friday to stump for Martha Coakley´s campaign for Governor of Massachusetts. Coakley needs help badly, as even in blue, blue Massachusetts, the race between Democrat Coakley and Republican Charlie Baker is essentially a toss up. In her remarks, Obama pushed the President´s newest campaign line that he has saved the economy based on
