From reader John Fritz:
The latest wisdom from the Washington Post editorial board: ‘Prince George’s proposed gun registry is a reasonable approach to crime.’ There’s that warning word, “reasonable.” I’ve been saying for years that the sex offender registry would mission creep into keeping track of repeat drunk drivers and/or drug offenders. I was wrong. It’s going to be folks who commit gun crimes who get to enjoy being tracked like sex offenders. I ran this story by two of my friends, well-educated and successful guys. Neither could see anything wrong with this proposal and they thought I was out of line for not being a supporter myself. I got angry and yelled at them. And they think I’m the crazy one.
