Quote of the day–Jeff Cooper

Further nasty news from the nasty United Nations Organization:

One Eric Kibuka, who delights in the title of “Director of the United Nations African Institute for the Prevention of Crime and Treatment of Offenders,” has gone on record to the effect that “The international community (sic) has decided that firearms regulation is at the core of democracy and good government.” The connection between firearms regulation and democracy is about as obvious as the connection between traffic regulation and quail hunting, but that is not likely to trouble a U.N. official. As we have all noticed, the cry of the modern left seems to be “To hell with the facts. It’s the gut reaction that matters.”
