Liberalism Disarms, Husband Kills, Soccer Mom
A note from the decidedly non-utopian real world we inhabit: I’m sure the leftward spin on this tragic story will be that a gun-toting soccer mom died by means of the same sort of weaponry she favored packing, live by the sword, die by the sword (though that expression should perhaps be reserved for stories like this one). The sanity-ward spin, though, should be that a sheriff, by revoking her carry permit, left her disarmed, allowing her violent husband to murder her (and then, to the world’s relief, to kill himself). Every liberal who would disarm potential victims bears some guilt in allowing such things to happen.
