    Go to tribunereview.com, the wed address for The Pittsburgh Tribune Review. There you will find the above referenced article by Colin McNickle.

    The historical context is interesting, and remains valid today, I submit. Readers may judge for themselves.

    I see this exact failing right here, manifested in members and more then a few of the staff, who are loathe to tolerate even the most subtle references as to why we have a 2nd amendment, which has nothing to do with shooting sporting clays.

    Thats why we have a 2nd amendment...P.S. link has been dutifully scrubbed by Obama drones at Huffpost....

    Thank you for the link, I have difficulties creating same, must be thick headed or something.

    I too thought the piece was well written, historically interesting and still valid.

    Letters to the Editor...

    I have just made a copy of the editorial (with full attribution, of course) and will send it to the editor of our local newspaper. He tries to be "balanced", as he says, and I give him credit for the attempt. But somehow, his leftward leaning always shows through. One of hs latest editorials on the subject touched on the 2nd Amendment, followed by a remark about "sensible limitations" - like all transactions must have background checks, magazine imitations are not going to be an inconvenience to anyone who shoots, etc.

    I think he needs a dose of Colin McNickle to help clear his head.

    Watch him bleat if you suggest "sensible limitations" on his First Amendment rights...
