Monday Meanderings: hi-cap revolvers, Rhode’s life, and I’m no anglophile.

Posted by:

– Not sure where I got this, but it’s pretty interesting: a three-barrel revolver. What will people think of next?!? (<–that’s humor, people.)

– Seems that Kim Rhode, ace Olympic shotgunner and ambassador for the shooting sports, has a blog. Hope she finds time to post more often. (Who knew she was a fan of bacon-wrapped meatloaf?)

– Speaking of Kim: I’m still a little miffed that they removed her original event – women’s double trap – from the Olympics, but left the men’s division. Why? No one knows for sure, but likely because some of them uppity females were beatin’ the menfolk. There are lots of countries represented on the Olympic Committee, not all of them known for their enlightened attitudes regarding a woman’s place in society.

An article in The Economist (a magazine which often displays a raw anti-American bias, yet is revered by Americans who somehow consider themselves unbiased for having read it) talks about gun ownership in the U.S. It states that while gun sales are way up, the number of households owning guns has declined steadily since 1973 – the implication that guns are being purchased only by those evil “gun nuts.” Their position doesn’t square with my observations, and I’ve yet to find any corroboration for it. Can anyone comment authoritatively on their claim?
