caught up with him in a very sympathetic story.
One problem: the Times quotes more than once a former editor at Guns & Ammo who remains strongly against gun control. “We are locked in a struggle with powerful forces in this country who
will do anything to destroy the Second Amendment,” says Richard Venola. “The time for ceding some rational
points is gone.” One problem: this same guy was charged with murder not long ago for shooting and killing another fellow (mug shot at left). He got off twice on hung juries and just recently learned he did not face another trial.
The Times noted this--well down in the story, in merely a brief--parenthetical--line. It failed to mention the drunken fight part. Perhaps they downplayed this a bit too much?
