"In a matter of days after the Tucson atrocity, we saw all manner of BS gun control arguments raised yet again. A case of simple minds seeking unworkably simplistic answers to complicated issues, and pointedly avoiding the real problems that need to be addressed. The London-based Economist sniffed pompously that in no other civilized country would a private citizen be able to buy a Glock 19. This will come as a shock to my French, Italian, Belgian, and other friends overseas who legally own them. But when does truth ever get in the way of rhetoric? ..." ...

... "How do we reconcile the banishment of tiny toy guns or WWJD bracelets from school with what the Detroit Free Press reports that authorities of Plymouth-Canton Community Schools have decided to do? Sikh students will be allowed, because it is a requirement of the Sikh faith, to carry a kirpan (photo, above), a three- to five-inch knife, into school. The weapon is euphemistically described as a 'religious dagger,' which is true, but it is also true that part of the Sikh religion is militant self-defense, so although the kirpan is not a weapon of aggression, it is a weapon which must have practical value in fighting. ..." ...
