Radio, TV, and elsewhere
Yet another busy week has passed.
I’d be lying if I didn’t admit that the high point of my week was a review in the Washington Post, which flattered me by declaring that Arms is “entertaining, often funny and ultimately an important addition to the limited canon on guns.”
Maclean’s magazine called the book “a pleasingly acerbic popular history—an equal-opportunity lambasting of everyone from American gun weenies to Canadian cultural nationalists.”
I also wrote a piece for Maclean’s (online only), on why the now-defunct long gun registry, a hot political topic less than a year ago, is suddenly a non-issue on the campaign trail.
I touched on the same theme a couple of days later, talking to Ryan Jesperson on Edmonton’s CHED 630 radio.
And to round things out, I made an appearance on TVO’s The Agenda, to discuss the documentary “Up In Arms,” along with its director, Nadine Pequeneza. You can see that film here, and I recommend it: it’s a balanced and thorough look at a gun lobby most Canadians don’t know exists.
