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.
