”How a politician stands on the Second Amendment tells you how he or she views you as an individual… as a trustworthy and productive citizen, or as part of an unruly crowd that needs to be lorded over, controlled, supervised, and taken care of.”
~ Dr. Suzanna Gratia Hupp

What does packing a gun have to do with productivity? Has this actually been studied? Is it like a correlation or a causation, or is this just magical thinking on the part of Dr. Hupp?

Hieronymous Knickerbocker

Trustworthy and productive armed citizens? What do you suppose James Brady would say about that concept?

Or Medgar Evers, or William Garfield or Gabrielle Giffords or Phil Hartman or John F. Kennedy or Robert F. Kennedy or Martin Luther King Jr.?

What might we hear on the subject from John Lennon or Abraham Lincoln or William McKinley or Ronald Reagan (Brady's boss at the time) or Theodore Roosevelt or Selena, or Gianni Versace or Andy Warhol or Isaiah Washington?

Malcolm X believed in what the gun lobby likes to call "Second Amendment remedies." Pull the trigger and it's still murder.

The list of people senselessly shot by senselessly armed citizens is as close to endless as a list can be. Be careful what you wish for.

Hello! Fancy seeing you here! And emoting as effectively as on Morrissey's site!

Here I was going to grouse about Mr. Soglin's swipe that "It is no secret that this law is bad public policy," but I was diverted by your appalling appeal to pity.

I say "appalling" because you hide behind cherry-picked morality; and you dodge the issue by imputing criminal intent to anyone who touches a firearm or who supports the Second Amendment.

My word! You certainly have issues with liberty.
