McArdle would rather not dwell on that ugly fact of guns. They are not toys. They are not megaphones. They do not utter cute or funny or pointed commentary on the state of American polity today. They dispatch useful weights of metal at high speeds across considerable spaces with an accuracy restricted by the quality of the machine and the skill of its operator. Reality matters.
I don't give a shit one way or the other about McMegan. It is only that her shit is so typical of the right/libertarian stream of offal that SMACKDOWN is so appealing.
Reality matters (to some -ed.).
