It's old and I shouldn't pay attention, I guess, but good grief, what treacherous polemic:
Ultimately, a civilized society must disarm its citizenry if it is to have a modicum of domestic tranquillity of the kind enjoyed in sister democracies like Canada and Britain.
There's more, too, and worse in that column in Krauthammer's own words.
Personally, I'll take the largely avoidable risk of dying in a hail of lead over the domestic tranquillity of an inescapable, unavoidable, bulletproof cage. Yes, please, let me take my chances. My constant firearm in my walks is a better solution than Krauthammer's plan to declaw me. A law abiding citizen's pistol tyrannizes no one and endangers none save those who would first offer violence.
The same can be said of the law abiding citizen's modern sporting rifle with its standard capacity magazine, but that's hardly surprising.
