Petzal is another MSM gun writer who has failed to understand the new world of blogging, and the internet's ability to arm the shooting community proletariat against elitist gun rag bullshit. He now supports Jim Zumbo. What does he think of the the 2nd amendment? In 1994, as a writer for Field & Stream, he urged hunters to support the "assault weapon" ban in the vain hope that their guns would be spared. To wit:
"Gun owners -- all gun owners -- pay a heavy price for having to defend the availability of these weapons. The American public -- and the gun-owning public; especially the gun-owning public -- would be better off without the hardcore military arms, which puts the average sportsman in a real dilemma. An Uzi or an AKM or an AK-47 should be no more generally available than a Claymore mine or a block of C4 explosive." David E. Petzal 1994
I think LCDR Jim Dodd, USN (Ret.)said it better than I could.....
You told us you would ban assault weapons the last time around, and I expect your editors deflected the storm of replies (maybe the shower of written, snail mail replies in those days).
Mr. Zumbo was buried by a blogswarm, you can be the next old and lame MSM type to learn bloggin 101 as my friend says.
I did a career in the military making the world safe, and keeping you free to say what you want. I don't have to like what you say, and I don't.
You are an elitist, and a poor writer who must depend on name calling because your position is bereft of logic.
Say "hello" to Sarah on the way out.

Thank you for your service Commander Dodd. Get a clue burrito and eat it Petzal. Stay tuned indeed.
