What I’m hoping for… is for us to learn to think of gun crime (and drugs!) as a public health problem amenable to sensible regulation, rather than a form of Wal-Mart vs. Whole Foods identity politics where we argue about “Liberty!” and “Dead Kids!” all day without getting anywhere, just like we do (with Team Red’s and Team Blue’s kabuki roles reversed), spend all day arguing about abortion with those exact slogans (“Liberty!”, “Dead Kids!”) without, again, actually getting anywhere.
Yep. Resolved: the protection of innocent human life takes priority over liberty both before *and* after birth.
