Taking aim on the easy target

By Wesley Pruden

"What we must have is a national debate about guns." So goes the media cliché of the moment. Everybody on the left is saying it, but nobody there means a word of it. All these wayward worthies really want is an opportunity to put piety on parade (and take your guns).

<lots snipped>

The First Amendment protects Hollywood's gore machine. The first amendment guarantees even irresponsible speech but does not require it, a distinction often lost on those who abuse it. Getting crazy people off the street would be difficult. The Second Amendment protects the right of the law-abiding to own a gun. That's the easy target of the gun-control hysterics.
