Meanwhile ...The Army is distributing a video game, aimed at people age 13 to 17, that is full of guns and shooting and the chance to engage in exciting rescue operations."

The participants, who in all but one study were primarily white, were also quicker to fire on black men with guns than on white men with guns." ...

"'Most Americans don't know that criminals, the mentally ill, and even terrorists can easily buy guns through newspaper classifieds,' according to John Johnson, chair of the national campaign.

"Gun zealots, led by the National Rifle Assn., fought Davis and Democrats virtually every step, stubbornly refusing to compromise and giving up more than they surely would have by negotiating. Digging in against gun controls is a losing strategy in California."

According to this feeble excuse for a columnist, anyone who opposes draconian, freedom-limiting measures is a "zealot." What would you call a frothing, vitriolic pseudo-intellectual with little capacity for logic?
