COMMON SENSE ON GUNS Thanks to Megan McArdle and Sven Svenson for a lot of good stuff on this topic from the last few days.

I remember a few years ago in Kansas City, some toddler managed to get hold of a gun and killed himself. It seems too much to point out that this couldn't have happened if there were a minimal amount of supervision of the child. But the anti-gun crowd had no such compunctions - all the Kansas City (Red) Star could see was the gun. I guess it would have been OK if the kid had been poisoned, or run over, or scalded, or had started a fire and burned the house down, or had fallen out of a window...
