Nothing gets by those sharpies at Rolling Stone.
The once-venerable publication continues its slide into self-parody with its latest issue: a multi-pronged jihad against Second Amendment rights that includes a slideshow reporting the “5 most dangerous guns in America.”
The magazines shocking results?
The “most dangerous guns in America” are, in order …..
Pistols, revolvers, rifles, shotguns and Derringers.
In a word: Guns.
The piece is being greeted by high-powered mockery, to say the least.
I can’t stop laughing. To all gun owners, supporters, or even haters, you will love this http://t.co/dNoi0JVZSb

@nranews Yep, “lets list ALL guns and say those are the most dangerous kinds” Might as well say “big ones and small ones and we’re idiots..”

@nranews@RollingStone@TwitchyTeam – Rolling “Stoned” needs to avoid all attempts at journalism. This was pathetic even for them!

Some theorized that the magazine had to be faking it, apparently thinking no one could be this stupid.

That would be charitable, but probably not true. The oh-so-serious tone of the accompanying text — “Due to a combination of availability, portability and criminal usage the following five types of guns are the country’s most dangerous” — makes it pretty clear the limp-wrist lefties who now staff the magazine built that once employed renowned gun-guy Hunter S. Thompson think this is actually news.
To normal people, it’s comedy fodder.
@charlescwcooke Rolling Stone should make a list of the 3 most dangerous vehicles. Front wheel drive, rear wheel drive and pickup trucks.

Speaking of vehicles …

So what could those sly hipsters have coming at us next?
i suspect @kristengwynne‘s next @RollingStone article will be on 5 most dangerous foods, including meats, fruits, veggies, grains and nuts. — Bob Owens (@bob_owens) July 14, 2014 That would be based on exhaustive research with the USDA and the FDA, no doubt.
This one about sums it up for sheer idiocy:
Most dangerous forms of matter: 3. Mineral 2. Vegetable 1. Animal
