Hard Left on Gun Control and Gun Culture

CounterPuncher Kevin Carson is "not really interested in engaging either the smug liberal challenges of 'well, are you people finally ready to come to your senses' or the right-wing hysteria of 'The Kenyan Marxist Muslim is coming to take our guns away!'" — Some Observations on the Gun Control Debate. Some excerpts:
    I don’t care much for the idea of the same state responsible for warrantless wiretapping and the NDAA regulating the public’s access to weaponry for self-defense. And I don’t want a new War on Guns carried out by the same lawless paramilitary thugs in kevlar who’re already fighting the wars on drugs and terrorism.... The United States has more gun violence than other Western countries for the same reason it has a culture of flag-worship and “supporting the troops” unequaled anywhere else in the West, for the same reason Christian Zionism is such a powerful political force in our country...
