As usual, Larry hits the nail on the head in this great post: Paris. Coming soon to a location near you. Mumbai, Beslan, and a thousand others, we’ve seen this before, and we’ll see it again.

When an article starts with: In most states, you cannot have guns if you’re a felon, or if you have been committed for mental illness.

Chuck Schumer & Diane Feinstein both make no bones about wanting to remove your access … Continue reading Due process?

TIME magazine posted this article last Thursday, just in time for the weekend: When Chérif and Saïd Kouachi attacked the offices of Charlie Hebdo on Jan. 7, killing 12 people, they were armed with Kalashnikov assault rifles and could easily outgun the police officers who tried to apprehend them with pistols.
