Late to the party, but better late than never

Last week, when Stan demolished this Reuters article (by Bernd Debusmann) about the "demise" of the gun culture in the U.S. (Snowflakes in Hell, War on Guns, and Say Uncle hit it, too), I should have linked to it--that was some great work on Stan's part. I took special interest in the revelations that the National Opinion Research Center (NORC), quoted by Debusmann, receives money from the virulently anti-gun Joyce Foundation.

I didn't, though--largely because it was so well covered (here and here, for example) elsewhere. Now, however, it's just getting too fun to stay away. First, Stan noticed that even Reuters is seemingly starting to step away from Debusmann. To top it all off, now Debusmann is apparently taking exception to the criticism.

Pretty spirited counterattack, considering it's coming from a "dying" gun culture, eh, Bernd?
