Paging Alfred E. Neumann

Eugene Volokh has a lovely post up on yet another proposal to disarm all potentially murderous gun owners. Of course, the "potentially murderous" is defined as "gun owner" so I suppose I’m being redundant. This one is novel by the author’s use of employment contracts as the method of choice. I applaud his ingenuity, but despise his motivation.

The problem for gun owners in general is very simple: people exist who would cheerfully disarm every civilian in the country. If you somehow beleive otherwise, you’re a fool. The evidence is obvious and overwhelming. The hostility towards guns in certain segments of the population is as rational as the demonization of nuclear energy, which is to say not at all. Luckily, smart people like Prof. Volokh are trying hard to shine forth the light of reason.
