Hard to know how many people read about this in the paper, or heard about it on the news, but I was appalled when I read this story. I understand that the magazine Guns & Ammo is owned by InterMedia Outdoors and they have control over what's published in their publications. But firing employees like Dick Metcalf and Jim Bequette because of suggesting that there may be some common ground for gun advocates and gun control proponents is unconscionable. Is this the old Russia where no dissident speech can be tolerated?
Dick Metcalf is an example to all Americans. Stand up for what you believe. Put your job on the line when you are faced with an issue so important that, literally, lives are at stake. Hey! Maybe elect Dick Metcalf to Congress!
