Last week, David Chanen of the Strib wrote a piece – a decent one, actually – about the straw-purchase flim-flam that put a gun in the hand of Ray Kmetz, the New Hope shooter who was legally barred from owning guns at all.
And the story omitted something that almost no story about guns in the Twin Cities media has, in recent or even distant memory.
There was no obligatory, supercilious, and utterly wrong quote from Heather Martens!
Of course, several commenters, starting with Mr. D, got it within minutes of my posting this morning. Y’all know me too well.
Still, this is a virtual rupture of the space-time continuum.
What next? A Strib piece about politics that doesn’t quote Larry Jacobs?
I feel like anything is possible!
