Changed my mind on a gun control argument.

Recently I wrote an article about gun control, part of which contained the argument about the need for an armed citizenry to create a sense of mutually assured destruction with the government.  That was a bad argument.  The government has tanks and air superiority, not to mention military training.  Having guns in-hand would not make much of a difference.

That doesn’t change all the other arguments in that post about why guns should be modified, but not banned.  But I have changed my mind on the above argument and it’s refreshing.  :)  I love being less wrong than I was previously.  I’ve never understood the aversion to changing one’s mind.

In celebration, I give you this article about America’s last remaining hero.

It's funny how ambitions change over time.
