Stealth Gun (Non)Sense

posted on June 29, 2016

Every now and again, we encounter what starts out as sense in the strangest places: HuffPo took such a run recently with the Freakonomics of Gun Control.

It starts with interesting (some even true) observations about the unlikelihood of certain types of homicides, and particularly those that the media loves to make Americans think are of plague or epidemic proportions when they clearly are not.

Needless to say, the devolution to recycled tripe doesn’t take long, including the gem “perhaps paranoia should count as one of the mental defects that disqualifies people from owning firearms.” Paranoia as determined by whom, we can’t help but wonder. 

In the end, it’s another rant for gun registration, but a clever one: The suggestion is made that by permitting registration, most can keep their firearms. Particularly in this crucial election year, expect these boondoggles to grow in frequency and subtlety, and remember they all end the same—no more Second Amendment in any meaningful sense.
