Not Ben Stein. He’s not just an actor and pitch man, he’s also an economist and an attorney. But we won’t hold those last two against him. Much. Despite those handicaps, though, he’s got a pretty good bead on the whole gun control thing. “I have never understood the flaw in the argument that when guns are outlawed, only outlaws will have guns. And, of course, there are already laws against murder.” Elegant in it’s simplicity, no? Ben compares gun violence where he summers in Idaho – where guns are everywhere – to the crime rates in places it’s most difficult to get your hands on a heater; namely L.A., Chicago and D.C. “Obviously, Sandpoint, Idaho, is a very much calmer place than Chicago, and I’m not saying that people in Chicago should be allowed to just tote guns in their cars the way many can, and do, in North Idaho.” Oops! Well, no one’s perfect.
