The Internet Pokes Fun at Rolling Stone’s Generic List of the ‘5 Most Dangerous Guns in America’

Handguns

The Internet has been having a field day with Rolling Stone’s list “The 5 Most Dangerous Guns in America”.

The long-standing music and culture magazine often does lists on topics like the “100 Greatest Guitarists”, the “500 Greatest Albums of All Time”,  or “The 100 Greatest Country Songs of All Time”, and so on.

Earlier this month the magazine published “The 5 Most Dangerous Guns in America”.

We’re not about to poke fun at the deadliness of weapons, but Rolling Stone’s list is about as generic as they come.

Based on statistics from the FBI and ATF, the five most dangerous guns in America are (drum roll, please):

1. Pistols

2. Revolvers

3. Rifles

4. Shotguns

5. Derringers

Here’s some of the descriptions they used.

“Pulling the trigger of a rifle fires one projectile at the intended target, as opposed to the shotgun’s ability to spray.”

Really.

“Like rifles, shotguns are fired from the shoulder and may release a single projectile. Unlike rifles, however, one pull of a shotgun’s trigger may also spray the target with round pellets, or shot.”

Really. 

Here’s some the mock lists commenters have come up with on Twitter:
