Cosmopolitan Magazine to Partner with Bloomberg Group to Promote Gun Control

Warning, you are about to enter a "gunsplaining zone."

Trash magazine Cosmopolitan announced on Wednesday that it has partnered with Bloomberg's Everytown for Gun Safety (I'm not going to link it) to push a gun control agenda.

The magazine will run a propaganda piece in the March issue called "Singled Out," warning single women they may be dating a man who is a firearms owner. And he may become "disgruntled."

"When I was dating, it never occurred to me to ask a guy if he owned a gun,” wrote Joanna Coles, Cosmopolitan’s editor-in-chief, in her Editor’s Note. “But given the numbers — more than 8,700 women in the U.S. were shot to death by their partner between 2000 and 2013 — it’s time to discuss what’s in your guy’s drawers, and I don’t mean his CK boxer briefs.”

"Singled Out" identifies certain "gunsplainers." Here's my "real life" friend Cam Edwards speaking truth-to-power or, as the magazine would describe it, "gunsplaining":

Cam makes the self-evident point that people, women included, cannot depend on a malefactor who is immediately trying to engage in the criminal activity of rape, robbery or murder, to do the right thing and stop. If a goon were going to do the right thing, why would he violently attack you in the first place? How this is a controversial observation?

Which brings me to my second point.
