I disagree, Bigdog. Ms Kieffer, thank you for a great column. I love the point of view you express and the language you have used.
Bigdog, to acknowledge that we need to enforce laws and do everything to protect people from insane mass murderers is not to argue for gun control or any other tyrannical solution. It just says we want to improve our standard of living. Concealed carry and free enterprise seem like good solutions to me. Kieffer has simply posed the problem in interesting, thought provoking terms.
