Laci the Dog at mikeb302000’s blog is not the most strident of gun grabbers—although that may be the dictionary definition of an invidious distinction. In any case, Laci had a little debate with pro-gun commentator Jim about abortion (like we need to go there) and the right to self-defense. Laci laid out what I’m sure he believes to be a “middle ground” position on the right to carry a concealed firearm. I share it with you because A) I’m reaffirming my willingness to link to gun control websites (regardless of the possibility of gun blogger fragging) and B) Laci’s statement demonstrates the ill-considered insidiousness of gun control advocates’ positions. “I believe that carrying weapons should only be allowed if someone is in immediate threat of encountering deadly force.” Toss that man a gun! You know; as and when.
