Sometimes the "Inside Baseball" can get a little carried away.

Someone sent me an email with the header "Layers and layers of editorial oversight", which is a now hoary meme in the gunblogging world.

It linked to a story where one of the Busch clan (the filthy rich booze-making Busches, not the filthy rich race-car-driving ones) had been busted for helicoptering while intoxicated and carrying guns, or some sort of crazy millionaire crime like that. The key grafs are quoted here:
Busch told officers that he had a conceal carry license and had a Rohrbaugh R9 9mm in the front pocket of his pants.  He told them that the weapon was, "hot."  The removed the gun from his pocket.  Police also found Dexamethasone in his pocket.  The prescription was for August's wife.

At that point, Busch told officers that he was about to have a panic attack.  He began jumping and running sprints saying that he needed more oxygen to deal with the attack.

A search of the helicopter turned up several weapons.  Police discovered a loaded Ruger LCR 22 LR revolver, a Ruger SP101 .357 Magnum revolver with four live rounds, and a loaded Glock Austria .357 with one round in the chamber. 
The gist being "LOLOL @ 'a loaded Glock Austria .357 with one round in the chamber'."

You know, considering how good the rest of the terminology was, pointing and laughing at the reporter for basically reading the side of the gun just makes us look like a pack of Aspie gatekeepers...
