No one is surprised to see Slate be anti-gun. I’m pretty sure it’s a requirement on your resume when you apply there. In the interview, they probably ask stuff like what your greatest weakness is, who you admire, and just how anti-gun are you. No one is shocked.
However, there are heights of anti-gun stupidity that I didn’t think could be reached, not even by those who write for Slate.
Oh, how wrong I was.
