    ...the irrational belief that some gun owners have expressed that the government is on the verge of taking their guns away (not!), and/or that in the event that the government does someday confiscate guns, gun owners will fight back (good luck with that one).  

    Of course, everyone has a right to self-defense. But do people really need military-style guns to defend themselves against home invasions/intruders?  Or will simpler rifles and guns do? That is the question.

    The civil rights, gay rights and women's movements, designed to allow others to reach for power previously grasped only by white men, have made a real difference, and the outlines of 21st century America have emerged. -- Paul West of LA Times
