Target: Gun Control

I read a collection of interesting and disparate links on the topic of gun control this past weekend and thought a post bringing them together might be of interest to OLS readers:

First, former NYC Mayor Mike Bloomberg shows the gross ignorance, arrogance, and moral self-righteousness underlying much of the elitism of the liberal intelligentsia as it relates to gun control.

Second, Reason.com's Brian Doherty reviews a recent book attacking the second amendment and determines that the key argument of the book is off target.

Third, under the category of "I hope this becomes a tidal wave", Missouri is set to smack the 2nd Amendment haters in their state back to the stone age.

And lastly, under the category of "Um, no kidding":
A dramatic spike in the number of Americans with permits to carry concealed weapons coincides with an equally stark drop in violent crime, according to a new study, which Second Amendment advocates say makes the case that more guns can mean safer streets.
