An article came out recently in Harper's Magazine called "Happiness is a Worn Gun". The writer, Dan Baum, has been in touch with us at Beyond Bullets in the past about gun issues, but we never knew that he was a gun-toting liberal!
Stephen Colbert does it again. One of the reasons he's so brilliant is that people on both sides of a political debate believe that he's with them. No matter what side he's on (maybe neither?) he does a remarkable job of imitating people at the height of their absurdity, as he does here with gun rights activists.
The Supreme Court voted in favor of gun rights again, preventing state and local governments from making their own laws about gun possession. It's curious that the same people who vote in favor of this federal oversight of gun laws want the federal government out of their business when it comes to ANYTHING else. We've got some pretty confused, one-track minds out there when it comes to the 2nd Amendment.
