What was it I was just saying...

...about leftists and their thought processes?

I'm nobody's idea of an anti-gun crusader. But when I consider the sorts of things the Iranians could stand to borrow from America, a poorly worded amendment dealing with gun ownership rights and militias is way down the list. I think that maybe Iran could stand to have some separation of powers, a line between church and state, a free press, freedom to worship, the right to assemble, the right to speak freely, a freedom from unlawful searches, due process of law, womens' suffrage, and a government that doesn't terrorize its citizens with armed thugs or threaten its neighbors through terrorist proxies.

So, Mr. Linkins, assuming they actually got all those other things before they got armed...how would you suggest they defend those things in the event some would-be turbaned tyrants tried to take them all away? Throw rocks? Idiot.
(h/t Mr. Codrea, who asks, "If she (Neda Agha-Soltan -- ed.) were your daughter, wouldn't you want to shoot back?" Apparently the answer is no...)
