ABC Gangs-Up on Gun Control

“More guns and bullets, more dead children,” the Nation publisher Katrina Vandel Heuvel pronounces to the ABC’s This Week panel. And there you have it: the bumper sticker reasoning behind the assault on Americans’ Constitutionally protected right to keep and bear arms. How do you argue with that? Well, you can, obviously, with rational thought and reasoned debate. Of which there is precious little in these post-Sandy Hook slaughter times. Especially amongst politicians and pundits who play to the mob: “A military assault weapon that can pump thirty to forty bullets in the face of a kid . . . that’s what we need to protect ourselves in this country?” God protect us from IF-SABs: I’m for the Second Amendment But. But nothing.
