Quote of the day...

Quote of the day...  This time from the blog of Eric S. Raymond, on the subject of gun violence in the U.S.  He says:
Nobody wants to be honest about this except a handful of evil scumbag racists (and me).  Thus, the entire policy discussion around U.S. firearms is pretty much fucked from the word go.
He concludes that the right policy decision would be to decriminalize drugs and then see what the next highest driver of gun violence is.

I agree with that, though I don't share his optimism about how much gun violence would decline absent the war on drugs.

Eugene Volokh has a great post today on the same subject, too...
