More Krauthammer on guns

In a follow up to this, reader Tony says maybe he’s evolving:

It is true that with far stricter gun laws, Cho Seung Hui might have had a harder time getting the weapons and ammunition needed to kill so relentlessly. Nonetheless, we should have no illusions about what laws can do. There are other ways to kill in large numbers, as Timothy McVeigh demonstrated. Determined killers will obtain guns no matter how strict the laws. And stricter controls could also keep guns out of the hands of law-abiding citizens using them in self-defense. The psychotic mass murder is rare; the armed household burglary is not.

I guess that is progress from someone who once advocated a total ban on gun ownership and confiscation.

    I can’t get my head around Mr. K. Stuck in a wheelchair, living in D.C, one would think he would be a strong advocate of the RKBA.

    Well he may have supported the AWB but as least he was honest about what the bill really was. Which makes me wonder how much he really supported it.
