Leave the Gun. Take the New Yorker.

[Ross] If I were to pick the New Yorker writer least likely to convince me that "there is no reason that any private citizen in a democracy should own a handgun," Adam Gopnik would be pretty high on the list. And sure enough, I'm not convinced.

Fortunately, the issue also includes Anthony Lane on Barbara Stanwyck, which is a slightly better match of writer and subject.
