Handguns for Hogwarts?

Although I think about guns a lot, and I read several of the Harry Potter books to my younger son at bedtime, I just never even thought about whether Harry should trade his wand for a pistol. It definitely didn't occur to me to write down those sentiments in some detail and post them on Facebook for the entire Internet to ridicule.

However, J.K. Rowling has sold 400 million Harry Potter books, so the odds were good that at least one would be read by a gun nut with way too much time on his hands, resulting in a post like this one, which Gun Nuts TV producer Jon Ross spotted and sent to me from Failbook.failblog.org.
