In the News As none other I know how problematic it is to discuss matters related to politics on the web. However, every now and then, there's no way around it, and this is one of those moments. There's this thing going on at airports in the US, and while many will see it as a separate issue, the body scanner issue, and the sad stories it has spawned, are symptoms of a far larger problem that is a direct threat to everything we've fought for during and since the Enlightenment.

Not bloody likely. This country was founded by gun-toting rebels, and the day guns are outlawed in the USA will be the day it no longer is the USA.

Or to put it another way: The last thing you'll take from a gun owning American is his gun, and that's only because the second-to-last thing you take will be his life.
