That’s not a terrible article. They present “both sides” but I don’t read it as being anti-gun propaganda. I also think it is good that they highlight just how difficult it is to legally but a handgun here (3 months for the one guy). They should have highlighted the difficulty of the attorney who was featured obtaining his CCW, but what can you do.

I’m glad more liberals are buying guns and I’d like to see more sources talk about gun ownership to remove the stigma. This article could have taken an opportunity to highlight all of the rules of safe gun handling (instead of just highlighting one) and briefly discussed how to safely store a firearm at home, as that is a missed opportunity.

I try to put articles like that into context, understanding who wrote it, where/what it's about, and who the intended audience is. I can just hear my neighbors (very much that rag's audience) cluck-clucking about all the dumb people who think a gun makes them safer, blah blah.

Galling: the writer's inevitable, breezily casual drive-by stipulations that police were killing black people all summer long, that there was an "insurrection" on January 6, and the rest. No lefty writer can pen a piece like that without sliding some of that BS in there, just to keep the fake news alive. Even made it sound like local Asians are taking their clues from "the Koreans" during the Rodney King riots ... without a single honest contextual clue as to what that was really about. I did appreciate the lawyer mentioning all the damage and boarded up businesses in his "safe" part of Bethesda/Chevy Chase/Friendship Heights ... though the author of course tried hard to obfuscate the fact that that was about lefty thug violence, not "insurrectionists!"

On balance, considering the source and subject matter, it's more than I would have hoped for. The trick is to get my neighbors to actually talk about this stuff without looking over their shoulders in paralyzing fear of being Cancelled by their other neighbors.

I can only imagine that many of those guns are going to find their way into the secondary/used market within the next couple of years.

You may be correct but

I am wondering if they have seen the pattern over the last decade or so where whenever a crisis has arisen, cops are not there to protect. They may instead keep their newly purchased weapons. But then again, the icky ew factor may make them sell

That will only happen if the slide toward chaos is reversed. I don't see that happening in the near term; the Left will continue to up the ante as their folly becomes ever more apparent.

When the S hits TF in the pricier neighborhoods, where the rainbow unicorn liberals gather, attitudes will perforce begin to change. Right now the more aware well-to-do leftists have quietly bought weapons; their more indoctrinated neighbors will only come along when their oxen are gored.

Or in this case, as mentioned in the article, when their Sax Fifth Avenue store on Wisconsin Ave is gored boarded up because of leftist threats and violence. Which happened. Article's cited lawyer lives a mile away, saw the light.

The first half of the article was pretty good: a guy who had a scary enounter decides to buy a gun..... 3 months later he finally is able to have it.
What pisses me off is that he then takes his class to get his carry permit, while the rest of us schmucks who have owned guns for decades will never be issued a permit. Must be some high flute'n rich white guy.
