“A new survey from Chapman University finds that the most common American fear is … walking alone at night, followed by becoming the victim of identity theft, safety on the Internet, being the victim of a mass shooting, and public speaking,” reason.com’s Elizabeth Nolan Brown writes. “I have never been so ashamed to be an American.” Huh? I’m NEVER ashamed to be an American, not even in jest. Anyway, notice that two of the three “worst fears” can be ameliorated by carrying a self-defense firearm (void where prohibited by law). And that’s [one more reason] why gun grabbers will never own the high ground and the NRA will always be able to motivate the base.
