Pro-gun story disappeared

There appears to have been an article saying “It is time for Europeans to support the natural right of human beings to protect oneself with a firearm” on a UK newspaper website earlier today. It is no longer available. Here is the screen capture evidence:

DailyMail

Clicking on the link (http://www.dailymail.co.uk/debate/article-2067300/Europeans-guns–It-time-Europeans-support-natural-right-human-beings-protect-oneself-firearm.html?ito=feeds-newsxml) yields, “Sorry. The page you have requested does not exist or is no longer available.” There does not appear to be a cache available for it either.

I can find all other articles by this same author but the one I am interested in doesn’t show up.

I was unable to find his email address or I would have attempted to contact him and find out what happened.

Update: Via some suggestions in the comments I was able to contact Brian Darling. He send me a one URL response, “http://bit.ly/tUExhc”.

I love the line after the title, “Read the column the UK’s Daily Mail pulled for being too dangerous”. I do wish he had elaborated on that a bit more but there are times when you don’t tweak the nose of the one who feeds you.

  1. Michael Savage was banned from the UK for speaking openly about the plausible threat of radical Islam. Asserting the importance of self defense assumes there are plausible threats in the world. If we can’t speak of plausible threats anymore for fear of upsetting someone (common criminals in this case) maybe they gave this guy the choice between being banned and taking down the article.
