number two

m (6 May 2010 10:03): Why is gun control such a firm plank of the progressive agenda? And why does it make sense not to read Miranda rights to suspected terrorists, but to let them buy guns (thanks Lindsay Graham)?
I'm afraid I fall a little to the libertarian side of this issue: let them eat guns, but Miranda rights as well. Maybe that's just the due-process side of the issue.
Paul (12 May 2010 19:50): Gun control makes more sense to those of us whose friends or acquaintances were killed for no reason. There are plenty of academic arguments to be made, but the simple fact is countries with less guns have fewer random murders.
