Weirder and Weirder

Hell in a Hand Basket points to Publicola who points to Keep and Bear Arms, who is getting the weirdest "I'm gonna sic my lawyers on you" letters that I ever hope to see.

KABA follows various gun laws etc. One thing they do is monitor crime rates in countries that have enacted strict gun grabbing laws. Monitoring of such countries as UK and Australia indicates that crime increases as gun rights decrease. In the course of KABA articles, they naturally link to articles on gun crime.

Apparently, reporter Greg Truscott of the South London Press resents the fact that people read the articles he's written, such as this one about a gun-wielding thug in gun-free UK who threatened a defenseless, unarmed woman with it, and this one about a gun-wielding thug in gun-free UK who killed a defenseless, unarmed man.

This is the first time I've heard of a reporter who didn't want anyone to read his stuff, but I'm a-scared of his lawyers (no, really, I mean it) so if you click on the links to his articles, please read them with your eyes closed . . or something.

Hmmm. Maybe it's a ploy on Mr. Truscott's part, to get his 15 minutes of fame. KABA seems to think that it is not an April Fool's joke.

whatever. It's a bizarre world.

Update: Well, Nicki's still getting emails from this guy, according to comments at Publicola. and it's not April 1 anymore. I guess maybe it's really real. But a reporter who doesn't want his work read and who doesn't believe in free speech . . that just beats the band. We need to package this guy up and sell him to Ripley's Believe it or Not. Those authoritarian 'liberals' just keep getting stranger and stranger.
