I really was not expecting this point of view; however, I think it is dumb and sexist in itself.

And I was really dumbstruck by the fact that it was written by a man...

    Check this article out:
    http://ethicist.blogs.nytimes.com/200906/03/a-follow-up-on-guns-for-gals/

    It is a followup to the article that you posted.  Near the end the author claims that the first article was meant as a joke.

    Calling himself an ethicist and posting the first article are incongruous to me.  Many people carry a gun for protection because they value their own life and the lives of their family.  To deny a man the same right as a woman based on gender is appalling.  The reverse is appalling as well.

    Thanks, Jim.

    Now the scary part would be the people that actually agree with what was written.

    What do I make of it? The shooter has too much jewelry and a terrible grip just asking for slide bite on her thumb.

    FMJ,
    No problem.

    You're right, the scary, and tragic, part is that people would take the article at face value and agree with the ideas and opinions expressed by the writer.

    Is it true that in today's modern setting there appears to be a lack of common sense and critical thinking?

    I think so.

    I was thinking the same thing.  From experience, the first time I ever shot a Beretta, before anyone ever showed me how to hold one, I got a slice along the first knuckle of my thumb holding it just like that.
    You can't argue with a .357 Magnum.  Well, you can, but you end up bleeding a lot.
