SECOND AMENDMENT UPDATE: Eugene Volokh has more criticism of the Washington Post’s lame editorial referenced below. And there’s also a post on the Volokh Conspiracy webpage from Sasha Volokh, explaining some things about guns that get left out of most media discussion.

And, finally, in a Volokh trifecta, another post adds this point:

By the way, note also that the Washington Post article mentioned below mentioned the “gun lobby.” I wonder: Would they have called NARAL and other groups on NARAL’s side of the issue the “abortion lobby”? Would they have called the Reporters’ Committee for Freedom of the Press the “press lobby”? Would they have called the NAACP the “black lobby”?

I somehow doubt it.

Yep. So do I.
