Because I'm a shooter, I'm posting this link to Gail Collins' remarkably funny, even-handed piece about firearms concealed-carry laws. I do this with some trepidation. It's a great piece and worth the few minutes it'll take to read it.
It is not incendiary, I'm happy to say, but it's not kind to Plaxico Burress or South Dakotans who insist that arming strolling tourists would bring SD-style safety to Central Park.
I do not carry. I think of myself as a shooting sportsman. I have no wish whatever to turn my blog into a Second Amendment forum. There are plenty of those already. Feel free to comment, but post civilized comments or post elsewhere. Thank you.
