Readers of Guns Magazine will soon notice a longtime feature missing or changed. The Rights Watch column written and edited by David Codrea will be gone.
From David's blog War On Guns:
I received an email this morning from the editor at GUNS Magazine informing me "we are going a different direction with Rights Watch and will no longer need your column." This isn't that much of a surprise. I have actually been expecting the hammer to drop ever since they "parted ways" with my former editor and magazine mentor Jeff John earlier this year.As a longtime reader and subscriber to Guns Magazine I think this sucks. It was always one column that I didn't miss nor do I think one should miss. Given David's leading role along with the late Mike Vanderboegh and Dave Workman in exposing Operation Fast and Furious, it doesn't make sense to me.
I know that I write for a niche within a niche and have a feeling that was a factor. It's their right to run their magazine as they see fit and I'll be interested to see what that "different direction" turns out to be.
