This is a discussion on David Mamet Article within the The Second Amendment & Gun Legislation Discussion forums, part of the Related Topics category; Good read: David Mamet: Gun Laws and the Fools of Chelm - Newsweek and The Daily Beast...
Wow. You never know who your friends are. If asked, I would have bet money that David Mamet was a typical card carrying Hollywood socialist. I'm sure he didn't do his career any good with that article - as Kelsey Grammer once said about having career ruining political beliefs in Hollywood: "Conservative is the new Gay".
I'm glad he had the character to publish that.
According to the Wikipedia entry on him, he's definitely a conservative. A rarity in Hollywierd.
The only common sense gun legislation was written about 224 years ago.
I carry always not because I go places trouble is likely, but because trouble has a habit of not staying in its assigned zone.
Found the article a little bit ago, forwarded to bunch of friends--excellent read!

If only the people who just absorb the idiotic arguments could read this and understand. But alas, most of them will just mindlessly repeat the mantra their handlers have put forth and they will do so as if there is some basis of fact involved. This article explains it very well and in terms anyone SHOULD be able to understand.
