Some time ago, L. Neil Smith penned a brilliant essay on the gun controllers.
He advised they really need to look deep inside themselves, and proclaim who they truly are:
"Stupid, insane, or evil. Those are the choices. Be honest.
"Make no mistake: you victim disarmament types are sick, sick people, in the
words of T.D. Melrose, who'd rather see a woman raped in an alley and strangled
with her own pantyhose than see her with a gun in her hand."
A good read.
