The Daily Star had an outraged headline, "We just blew £183m on a five-inch gun, but it’s ‘a good value for taxpayers"... the premise seems to be that they think a 5" gun (Naval Diameter Canon), is just 5" long handgun. You can tell because the subhead was, “the length of a toothbrush.” After getting resoundingly mocked, they since corrected the story, but they point isn't just that a staff writer was that stupid, but that the Senior editors and fact checkers were also that dumb so that no one caught it. That says what you need to know about about their collective wisdom on anything gun related.
This is a short list of some of the "smartest Gun-Controllers in the room". This isn't just "gotcha" type mistakes, this is about Gun Control advocates fundamental failure to understand the basics of what they're talking about. I'd be happy to find a gun-controller that could talk about the basic parts and operation without sounding like an idiot, but this article is about the examples of the 99% that are giving the rest a bad name. The things they said that make the informed gun-owners double-face-palm, and undermines the interests of any rational gun controllers. Some day I'll meet one of the latter.
