    police should be able to carry guns.  My objection is non-police who get off on the feeling of power a weapon provides.  It's the law... and I have to deal with it.  But the overwhelming majority of civilians who carry weapons around because they like the sense of power and want  to play the hero... they are sick fucks.  Maybe they are sick fucks who have the legal right to carry, but they are still sick fucks.

      Just because you put "of course" in front of something does not make it more reasonable.  If it's OK for cops to get off on the feeling of power a weapon provides, why is it bad for everyone else?

      What do the Defend-NSAers-at-any-cost hope for society to gain from Snowden turning himself in and standing trial? I suspect it'll be a cold day in hell before any of them finally give a reasonable, coherent answer to that question.
