“Nobody [but Phoebe Maltz Bovy] Wants To Take Your Guns”

As additional evidence of what we are repeatedly told isn’t the case, in fact, being the case, New Republic ran Phoebe Maltz Bovy’s article articulating a specific desire to “take all the guns” on December 10th. Rather than point out the speciousness of Bovy’s absurdist call for action, I’m going to just assume this is click-baiting on behalf of New Republic, and not meant to be taken seriously by anyone. I think that’s rather generous of me.

For future reference, the difference between “trolling” and “click-baiting” is that, in the case of “click-baiting”, there is a financial motive to sell more ads. That said, trolling seems a less crass and more noble pursuit.
