In the Brennan confirmation hearings, someone actually intoned the tired, fallacious meme, that we are somehow better-off “fighting ‘them’ over there, instead of over here.” About 3,000 people died on 9/11 (a VERY preventable attack); There were only a handful of other deaths in the previous decade of al-Qaeda’s existence; Three times as many have died in Iraq and Afghanistan, over about ten years. How, exactly, are we better-off fighting them “over there” again…?
The Political Carnival posted several 2nd Amendment political cartoons, and I was struck by one of them in an unexpected way. The cartoon in question is this: More powerful weapons than we’d like to believe are covered by 2nd Amendment rights and freedoms.
