Until and unless I can figure how to embed this bad boy, click here to watch the Kabuki theater of the Senate Judiciary Committee hearing on civilian disarmament (a.k.a., “What Should America Do About Gun Violence?”). Here’s the rundown of scheduled witnesses:
- Captain Mark Kelly, USN (Ret.), husband of Gabrielle Giffords, shot in the head by Jared Lee Loughner. Kelly’s now the spokesmouth for Americans for Responsible Solutions. Pro-gun control. Big style.
- Professor David Kopel Adjunct Professor of Advanced Constitutional Law Denver University, Strum College of Law. “Simply put, if not for gun control, Hitler would not have been able to murder 21 million people.” So pro-2A, then.
- James Johnson, Chief of Police, Baltimore County Police Department, Chair, National Law Enforcement Partnership to Prevent Gun Violence, funded by the deep-pocketed and so anti-2A it hurts Joyce Foundation
- Wayne LaPierre, Executive Vice President and Chief Executive Officer, National Rifle Association
