“Since no amount of gun-related tragedy seems sufficient to get state lawmakers to dial back on their firearms-friendly laws, we need to find a different approach, or face a future in which citizens of some states are required to carry a weapon with them at all times except when bathing.” New York Times columnist Gail Collins [above] would no doubt defend her hoplophobic hyperbole as simple sarcasm. And I would suggest that it’s a positive sign when anti-gun crusaders throw their metaphorical hands in the air (like we just don’t care). But one must always keep an eye on the anti-2A—sorry, pro-reasonable restrictions crowd. And here’s what Collins is “thinking [is] the best solution for all concerned” . . .
. . . a strict national gun-control law that makes it very difficult to get a concealed weapons permit, permits gun dealers to sell only one handgun per individual per year, and makes it illegal for even permit holders to keep handguns anywhere but their home, store or car glove compartment unless they are employed in the security business.
No humor there. Only entrenched opposition to Americans’ constitutional rights. And a complete lack of ideas on how to make her disarmament dreams a reality. Thank God.
