The Corner


I don’t write about guns much, but this seems like awfully rich fodder for Dave Kopel or others who do. The New York Times and others are

vexed over whether journalists should be armed in war zones. Considering the earlier post about how Baghdad is safer than New York, shouldn’t the real question be “Why shouldn’t journalists (or plumbers or accountants) in New York (or Washington or Los Angeles) be armed?” Of course, the New York Times policy on that is quite clear.
