Ben Carson: If You Live In the City, Maybe You Shouldn't Own a Semi-Automatic Weapon

As I've said, he's got years to learn. I think on this point he's probably confused.

I realize that's not much of a defense. But the media discusses "semi-automatic weapons" as if they're some sort of exotic Cult Object that someone who doesn't know better might be lead to think goofy things.

Obviously if he keeps this position, his future in Republican politics is, as CPAC would say of Chris Christie, rather limited.

This came up on Friday but I was in my lazy coast-to-the-end-of-the-week clock-watching phase so I blew it off. Sorry for blowing you off, Commenter Who Linked An Interesting Story Which I Blew Off.

Allah wonders why the left doesn't push this sort of rural/urban distinction as far as the 2nd Amendment. True, it makes no sense, but that didn't keep Justice Steven Breyer from pimping it in a dissent. I think the real reason is that the left 1, wants the issue, not some kind of compromise solution, and 2, actually does want to disarm everyone as a general matter and so any sort of possibly-stable solution (as unconstitutional as it might be) would work against their agenda.

In order to get full disarmament, they need a "crisis" situation. Anything that lessens the perception of a "crisis" thwarts their actual goal.
