The NRA and the “Positive Good” of Maximum Guns

As you know, I’m fascinated by historical patterns, so I pretty much had to link to this guest post by historian Tony Horwitz at Ta-Nehisi Coates’ blog. Comparing the “gun power” to the “slave power” is inflammatory, but the parallels are unmistakable. In fact, this pattern can be seen in most movements who fear their prerogatives being rolled back incrementally. Simply holding your ground is never enough.
