Quote of the Day: Rallying Point Edition

“The relevant lesson from the 1990s’ municipal gun litigation is that by attacking the firearm industry as a whole—and looking away from the criminals who pull triggers—politicians provided the NRA and the gun industry with a cause to rally their loyalists. Rather than split the industry away from the gun lobby, as they aimed to do, the proponents of the litigation bound the two closer together.” – Paul Barrett in The Big Cities’ Financial War on Guns May Backfire [via businessweek.com]
