Sowell on Guns

Dr. Thomas Sowell, who we recently reported as retiring penned an article for National Review on the subject of liberal thinking on gun control.  As always, his analysis is excellent and his prose is exemplary.  To wit:
Liberals imagine that law-abiding citizens do not have any idea how to use a gun responsibly — and that criminals will start following rules.
And, the good professor reveals that he, himself, has used a gun in self defense.  Like thousands of others, he didn't have to pull the trigger, the simple presence of the gun was enough to stop the attack.
 The only time I ever pointed a gun at a human being, it was when someone was sneaking up toward me from behind a shed in the middle of the night. I never fired a shot. I just pointed the gun at him and told him to stop. He stopped.
Thanks for your testimony, Dr. Sowell.  Given the opportunity, I;d go shooting with you any day, and if we ever meet inn a bar, the first round is on me.

Yep, he will be missed. And I'd definitely buy the first round!
