Damned if it is and Damned if it isn't


How come "sawed-off" shotguns were outlawed in 1939 because they weren't considered "weapons of war", while "sport-utility rifles" and other semiautomatic weapons are condemned today precisely because they are?

Because that's how the victim disarmament game is played, explains novelist and opinion-writer L. Neil Smith in his latest essay for Jews for the Preservation of Firearms Ownership, "Catch Twenty-Three". That's how politicians let the cruel victim disarmament industry play it, because that's exactly the way they're accustomed to playing it, themselves.

All in all it makes one yearn for the same thing that railroad robber baron "Commodore" Cornelius Vanderbilt yearned for: an honest politician -- meaning a politician that will stay bought. People often compare politicians with prostitutes, but that's inaccurate, Neil concludes, because at least by comparison, the latter have more character.
