Against Gun Control: The ‘I-Want-To’ Factor

William Murchison, The American Spectator

I speak as a lifelong non-gun owner when I say we ought not count on governmental control of firearms as a broad, asphalted, tree-lined avenue to the elimination of gun violence. It might be, in objective terms, that nothing short of resort to the old “superstitions” we thought were gone — prayers, confessions, sacraments — will help a bit. My advice to the gun-controllers and Harvard professors: Don’t laugh. There are more things in heaven and earth, evidently, Prof. Pinker, than are dreamt of in your philosophy.
