    I actually enjoyed the read; I doubt it would make a difference but even the most liberal of anti-gun advocate needs to read this. For that matter, every pro-gun advocate as well.

    Good article. I of course don't agree with everything he says, but this is a man who is having an honest debate with himself about how to handle the problem of increased violence perpetrated by a small but very dangerous group of people in our country, and he is considering all sides to the issue.

    I like a lot of Harris's writings, and a lot of his arguments are well-formed. My main complaint is that he will re-use an argument after it has been soundly defeated (instead of updating his thinking). I guess he's paid to have an opinion, and we're all human.

    I liked this line

    "you cannot reasonably expect the police to arrive in time to stop him. This is not the fault of the police—it is a problem of physics"

    Good thing the March of Dimes worked. How, why?

    Alternately, for those with a tool shed, ideas, or creative loved ones to tell..

    It's hard to decide whether his statements in favor of new gun-control laws (e.g. a ban on 'assault rifles) are genuine...or merely a ploy to keep the 'antis' reading.
    It seems to be the latter.
