I generally agree 100% with Dr. Sowell but I STRONGLY disagree with this: "If, as gun control advocates claim, gun control laws really do control guns and save lives, there is nothing to prevent repealing the Second Amendment, any more than there was anything to prevent repealing the Eighteenth Amendment that created Prohibition." Even if gun control were 100% effective in confiscating weapons and preventing their use by criminals, confiscation ensures that there is NO WAY for the populace to defend themselves against a criminal government.. which is exactly why the 2nd is there!!
