If you haven't read Kevin Baker's essay "Reasonable People" yet, go do it now please.
No, I can't quote just one part of it. It's that damn good.
Found via Eternity Road.
(By the way Tim, if you're looking for a new addition to our blogroll, I can't think of two better blogs than those I've just linked to. And anyone being bombarded with anti-gun propaganda needs to read ALL the essays on the Left side of Mr. Baker's blog.)
