Leave It To The French

Leave it to the French to leave their readers a twisted view of America's Second Amendment, and find some willing accomplices all too eager to jump in and say, "yeah, something's amiss here."

Actually, the Agence France Presse story wasn't too bad until it got down to the last few graphs:

"However, he noted that 'among the American people there is a growing indifference to any sense of militia discipline,' and questioned 'how it is practicable to keep the people duly armed without some organization.' "

"Today, a large part of what pushes millions of Americans to join the powerful gun lobby the National Rifle Association (NRA) is a 'you're not-gonna-tell-me-what-to-do reaction to government,' accord to Vizzard, a former agent with the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms."

Hmmmm . . .
