Seems there’s a fair bit of pearl-clutching in certain quarters over the fact that people are circulating lists of the members of the Connecticut state legislature who voted for their semiauto rifle registration act. And I’m just not seeing why people are getting so up in arms, so to speak, about this particular act. I can understand the sentiment that “just because they do it doesn’t mean we should,” but at the same time I don’t think that really holds water. The other side is fighting dirty and has been for a while now. Is playing by the Marquess of Queensberry rules really the thing to do here? I understand wanting to take the high road, but what do you do when that road eventually leads to your demise as a free people?
