The McMegan Line

Newsweak had one of their own vomit this out in public:

“My guess is that we’re going to get a law anyway, and my hope is that it will consist of small measures that might have some tiny actual effect, like restrictions on magazine capacity.  I’d also like us to encourage people to gang rush shooters, rather than following their instincts to hide; if we drilled it into young people that the correct thing to do is for everyone to instantly run at the guy with the gun, these sorts of mass shootings would be less deadly, because even a guy with a very powerful weapon can be brought down by 8-12 unarmed bodies piling on him at once.  Would it work?  Would people do it?  I have no idea; all I can say is that both these things would be more effective than banning rifles with pistol grips.”

Now McMegan’s defenders are going to whine about hammering on this admittedly small section of her blogpost walloftext, but some things are so beyond the pale that they deserve – no, DEMAND to be called out on their own.
