Blog Credo

The whole aim of practical politics is to keep the populace alarmed (and hence clamorous to be led to safety) by menacing it with an endless series of hobgoblins, all of them imaginary.

A Simple Question Or Two

Why should Americans have access to military assault weapons?  Why should Americans have access to clips that hold more than 10 shots?

How does the Second Amendment protect these things?

As so many have written, one idiot with a shoe bomb who killed no one has changed air travel.  Why can't we get rid of assault weapons?

Why is there more licensing and paperwork to buy a car than an assault rifle?

Why must kindergartner teachers and volunteer firemen be so much braver than our elected representatives?
