“What’s the difference between yesteryear and today? The logic of the argument for those calling for stricter gun control laws, in the wake of recent school shootings, is that something has happened to guns. Guns have behaved more poorly and become evil. Guns are the problem.

“Guns haven’t changed. People have changed. Behavior that is accepted from today’s young people was not accepted yesteryear.” – Walter Williams in Past Vs. Present Americans [via triblive.com]
