    Just saw this story - maybe gun control advocates have run out of arguments and have to reuse material?

    What the professor does not mention is that open carry was the norm in those days, and those who hid their guns did it with small assasin type firearms.
    It is also truethat some towns had gun bans, but that is nothing but a reminder that politicians have been ignorant of the constitution throughout the nation's history, and that in general those who seek to govern others just plain suck.

    Any company with self respect would have fired Fareed.

    Nothing coming from these anti-gun nuts surprises me. After all, lies and deception are the core of their game plan.

    This is really a sad tale as Fareed was an exceptional reporter and opinion writer.

    Don't know all the facts in this case, but we seem to have lost a great voice of reason and moderation to the call of greed.

    I agree. Zakaria is a voice of reason, moderation, and intelligence who has a long history of doing good and balanced journalism. It is very unfortunate he didn't just cite the original quote rather than try to use it as his own.
