I agree Steve, and I noticed the "gun show" reference when I read it also, and having been a long time OL subscriber I know of Miniter's work and was surprised to see that.

Did the author use the term "gun show" to describe the event anywhere other than the title?? It's in huge letters in the title, but I only remember seeing "outdoor show" in the actual article. Authors rarely get to title their pieces in things like this, as I understand it.

No, the author did not use the words "gun show" anywhere in the article. It's highly likely that it's use in the title was an editorial decision not made by the author, which is a point I made in my last post. It happens all the time. I wouldn't say authors "rarely" get to title the pieces they write, but generally the final decision is not up to them. Sometimes it happens to things I write, and sometimes the editor improves on my title. Unfortunately, the editor made a mistake here.
