    Good read thanks for the link.

    An armed society is a polite society. I've heard that somewhere before.
    "He that hath no sword, let him sell his garment, and buy one." Luke 22:36

    "If a law is unjust, a man is not only right to disobey it, he is obligated to do so." Thomas Jefferson

    The argument that the increase in gun sales had a causal affect on the decrease in crime is spurious. Intellectual honesty demands that we reject false arguments, even when those arguments support our underlying values.
