Surprising New York Times Article

Every now and again The New York Times surprises me. This time they published an article in the travel section that describes getting a Texas concealed carry license (registration probably required).

It’s relatively free of snark too. One or two phrases are cringe-worthy such as “Nationwide, for better or worse, Americans own some 220 million guns, and half the households in the country are believed to be armed.” For me, there is no worse when good people own guns. The author also turns his nose up at the clothing and armaments of his instructions, but even that is not too intrusive.

Overall, it is a descriptive article that even includes good advice on shooting a handgun. Give it a read.
