Self-righteousness is liberating. The same people who are most exercised about guns in America, and want to ban and even confiscate entire categories of firearms, know little about them and evidently feel no compunction to learn.

But please don’t confuse the anti-gun campaigners with facts. Their ignorance is invincible, and necessary to their crusade.

Reaction to the President's speech is driving some to do something they never done before: buy a gun. Others are buying even more guns. Ever since Black Friday the owner of this Muskegon area gun store says he's never been busier.
The first customer of the day walked in right after the store opened. The phone has been ringing all day. The rush of customers has become something Gary Foster has come to expect. "Everybody is doing the same thing after every mass shooting, assault weapons, ammunition, magazines," he says. "It is everything, after Sandy Hook we did not have a handgun in the building." The San Bernardino shooting is resulting in new gun owners.

When I was in middle and high school, there were spirited public debates about whether the proliferation of grisly movies, gore-glorifying song lyrics and shoot-'em-up video games might desensitize my peers and me to violence.

While I'm reluctant to pin any of this on pop culture, it's true that my generation appears somewhat inured to violence — at least violence involving firearms.

If ye love wealth greater than liberty, the tranquillity of servitude greater than the animating contest for freedom, go home from us in peace. We seek not your counsel, nor your arms. Crouch down and lick the hand that feeds you. May your chains set lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that ye were our countrymen. — Samuel Adams
