Don't Miss This Article by Larry Elder

Boortz tips me off to this one.

Money quote:

"Liberals frequently call John Ashcroft a 'fascist' -- Abu Ghraib, Guantanamo, the Patriot Act, etc. Yet the very same people want gun control. Why is this inconsistent?"

Good question, Larry. Apparently strong central government control is a very bad thing when it tramples on some Constitutional rights, but not when it tramples on other Constitutional rights. And speaking of trampling on Constitutional rights, check out this. It seems that the Second Amendment isn't the only one within the liberal half of the government's gunsights. Query: what would be the reaction if these were Republican congressmen suggesting "legislative avenues" to get CNN to only sing from the conservatice hymn book?
