Killer Tomato Cass Sunstein wrote an op-ed for Bloomberg last week entitled Gun Debate Must Avoid Crazy 2nd Amendment Claims. It contains the usual collectivist bilge but it was the illustration to the article which drew my attention.
I suppose that this is the "Founders wrote the Second Amendment at the time of single-shot smoothbore muskets so that's all you're guaranteed" argument illustrated in pen and ink.
I look at it as the visual expression of every modern tyrant's fear. Ten minutemen are replaced in the cartoon by ten rounds, a third of the standard capacity of an AR or AK. In other words, a ten-man modern minuteman squad carrying ARs and just one magazine per has an immediate firepower available of 300 rounds versus 10. Can there be any better illustration of the fear behind the tyrannical eyes of the advocates of citizen disarmament? THIS is why they have been striving mightily to ban semi-auto rifles.
I doubt that the cartoonist intended that reaction from our side, but that's what I see in this -- A picture worth a thousand tyrant's fears.
