"The abrupt cancellation of shooting sports by the Empire State Games could be a straight bottom line decision - or an example of politically correct antigun sentiment."

"I'd like to believe Fred Smith, the Games' executive director, that it was purely number-crunching, but after talking to some of those affected by the cancellation I wonder if their view is not without merit: That New York's bureaucrats - ruled by downstate antigun politicians - are trying to deep-six anything to do with firearms."

What's Wrong With Patriotism?

"It is this very attitude that has allowed dictators to rise throughout history and massacre untold millions whether it be in the name of the Fatherland, or the Motherland, or the Homeland. It says that in times of war it is the citizen's duty to support their leaders regardless of how evil or pure their intentions may be. I am sorry, but I just cannot accept that as a proper definition of patriotism. Blind allegiance is the mother of tyranny, not patriotism."

Do more guns cause less crime?

"The main argument of a recent book by John Lott is summarized in the title: More Guns, Less Crime. There are three parts to this argument:

-that there were more guns
-that there was less crime
-that more guns caused less crime

"Lott's argument depends on all three parts being true. If any one of the parts is incorrect, the entire argument fails. In fact, as I will show in the next three sections of this document, all three parts are wrong."
