The other day a neighbor asked when I was going to write another commentary. I had no answer then, but on reflection I realized that no college professor had written anything exceptionally stupid lately. Then, of course, came the Connecticut school shooting (392 million hits on Google as of Dec. 23, thank you). Although there is no way I could have investigated all the drivel written (apparently, one drivel unit for every man, woman and child in America), from what I have read, the main point seems to be: We’ve got to keep guns out the hands of “crazy people.” Fair enough. Who could argue with that?
The point is, I haven’t seen anybody make the mental jump to figure out doing that. So let’s play with a little mind problem. I’ll start.
