Tough on Logic, Too

The debate over gun control in America, if “debate” is the right word for it, has become stale and predictable to the point of parody—but a sad, bitter parody, not a funny one.

And since they don’t prevent shootings, opponents of those measures assume, not unreasonably, that if they drop their opposition and allow a gun-control measure today, the restrictionists will be back tomorrow asking for more, the former measures having proven ineffective—and this routine will keep repeating itself until liberals, unable to admit any error in logic, at last propose a full-on nationwide gun ban.
