Jay gives us something to think about:
Right now, as I write this, the streets of Boston are empty. On a Friday afternoon – a beautiful day in the high 60s/low 70s – the city should be just filled with life; instead it looks like something out of a zombie apocalypse movie. Police officers in armored cars roam the streets with automatic weapons, and Blackhawk helicopters search overhead, all for a person suspected of an act of terrorism and the death of an MIT police officer.
And yet I cannot buy a new Glock or a standard capacity magazine.
If things are so dangerous out there that we need attack helicopters patrolling our skies, then I should be able to buy a 15-round magazine for my M&P, don’t you think? If one person – one person – is so dangerous that people are being told to stay in their houses, businesses are closed, posse comitatus has fallen by the wayside, etc. – how can anyone tell me I shouldn’t own an AR-15?
Go read the rest. Then think about what he is saying.
