This is a discussion on Anti-self defense letter to the editor in the Boston Globe within the Concealed Carry Issues & Discussions forums, part of the Defensive Carry Discussions category; I don't know... There's something about having to explain the joke that makes it not funny any more. The problem is, a lot of "progressives" ...
I don't know...
There's something about having to explain the joke that makes it not funny any more.
The problem is, a lot of "progressives" and/or liberals would take this garbage seriously. I think they really are that narrow minded and, dare I say, stupid in the strictest sense.

I'm not familiar with the globe,,,,,, do they usually lack the &%#@ needed to print obvious pro 2nd amendment info?
I'm not a Globe reader, so I can't (and didn't) say it as an absolute. However, the paper is owned by the same guys who run the New York Times, and Boston/Massachusetts isn't known for their amazing understanding of the 2nd Amendment. Therefore, I stand by my previous statement that "I'd be willing to bet..."
Sorry I can't give you a better answer than that. We have a few Mass guys on the board. Perhaps they'll chime in.

Pure satire! He certainly evoked some great discussion of the topic...which was, after all, the point of the letter.
1. the use of irony, sarcasm, ridicule, or the like, in exposing, denouncing, or deriding vice, folly, etc.
2. a literary composition, in verse or prose, in which human folly and vice are held up to scorn, derision, or ridicule.
I spent quite a bit of time looking for other writings by the author and re-read his piece with a more level head.
Wow, he's extremely good with his satire. It's funny when you read it with that in mind, instead of the opposite.
