Maybe they should start a National Auto Association.

Why? Because there are apparently people out there who not only would presume to tell you that you don’t need a gun, but also that you don’t need a car:

Guns are an idea whose time has passed. It’s that simple. Cars and guns are two things you don’t need.

What, you didn’t think guns were going to stay out of it, did you?

In all seriousness, though, this sort of thing isn’t surprising. It’s been said that the Second Amendment is the one that protects all the rest. You could very well rephrase that to say that your right to own an effective means of self-defense is what protects your right to, well, do pretty much everything else. After all, without said effective means of self-defense, what are you gonna do when that detachment of modern-day Praetorian Guards — the modern-day Protection Squadron or Defense Corps, one might call it — comes to take your car because “intellectuals” like Nikki Giovanni, Chauncey DeVega and their ilk have decreed that you don’t need it anymore? There are those who would blow up kids for Mother Gaia. Taking people’s stuff would be pretty small potatoes compared to that.

Sigh. Every now and then the old quote from Admiral Josh Painter comes to mind: “This business will get out of control. It will get out of control and we’ll be lucky to live through it.”

    A professor, you say?

    I have an associate who’s planning to go back to school for a Masters’ degree. Dude uses the word ‘irregardless’ and pronounces nuclear as ‘nuke-ya-lur’. Great guy, generally, but…doesn’t inspire much confidence in the U.S. education system, especially considering he’s closer to the pointy end of the pyramid than the flat.

    As a society, we desperately need to get past the misconception that titles bring anything to a logic fight.

    Amen to that.
