(ht: Walt Kelly): Is a barnacle a ship?
This is messed up in so many ways. I understand resigning in protest against something your employer did, or asks you to do. I understand getting fired because you’re not with the program. But Bequette and Metcalf did the right thing “…generate a healthy exchange of ideas…” that the gun community would–obviously, especially in light of these events–benefit from. We need more people acting as though a job is not the worst thing one can lose!
But instead of forcing the magazine to either fire them or back them up after the yahoo faction erupted, or resigning on grounds that the magazine was wrongly caving in to fear (of that exchange) and ignorance, they quit as though they had done something wrong. They could have lost their jobs and kept much more important things, but now they have nothing!
