"Michael Shermer promotes critical thinking as the publisher of Skeptic. I normally admire his work, but his recent column, advocating new gun regulations, suffers from multiple thinking mistakes. Shermer's main error is a whopper. He assumes that politicians can effectively prohibit large capacity magazines and so-called assault rifles. But he does not test this assumption, as critical thinking requires." (01/29/13)
