Ultimate Gun Control

The NYT magazine also has an article by James Q. Wilson entitled "Just Take Away Their Guns". The lead-in says, "Forget gun control. To separate guns from the people who kill, let the police stop likely suspects on the street, frisk them and seize their weapons." He goes on to say he doesn't want to take guns away from law-abiding citizens. I wonder where the NRA will come down on this one? I can only imagine their campaign to get black and other minority support in an effort to keep the police from seizing guns in poor minority communities beset by gang violence. Am I being too cynical??
