    I <3 Thomas Sowell and read his colum regularly, so I was pleased when I saw him address the issue of "gun control" and what a misnomer that phrase truly is.

    I've included the entire article for context, but emboldened the section that specifically addresses gun control.

    Thanks omgwtf. I was considering mentioning this myself. It is not the first time that Dr. Sowell has brought up the follies of those who want to institute gun control, though it is uncommon. His columns are always enlightening.

    Controlling access to or scarcity of an object that has no inherent set of rights is always easier, and the most commonly chosen path, that attempting to modify the behaviour of ne'er do wells.

    Good to see he gets it. Thomas Sowell is a talented writer and his arguments are well thought out.

    Thomas Sowell is a brilliant man and much to our loss he never had any political aspirations.
