Guns and Lefty Columnists

by Robert VerBruggen

On the main site today, I have some tips for liberal columnists who want to write about guns. Unfortunately, it came too late to head off this disaster by the Washington Post’s E. J. Dionne — who seems to think that passing a law against bringing guns near government officials will stop crazed assassins, and who manages to warp the “preventing tyranny” rationale for gun ownership (that guns could be used as a last resort against oppression was one reason behind the Second Amendment) into something sinister.

Nonetheless, the rest of the left-wing punditocracy (and NRO readership!) should take a look.
