I wouldn't object to a "cultural shift away from reactionary gun
ownership," but these guys do realize that more gun control laws mean more
black and Hispanic men in prison for victimless crimes, right? It doesn't
take that much digging to see who's being sent away ("upstate," for the New
Yorkers) for possession now.

If the authors are actually in favor of the implications of their
prescribed policies, they should defend them honestly, which they certainly
don't here. If they're instead going to pull the ol' "Why, I had no idea
this would increase the incarceration of poor minorities!" routine when the
bill comes due, then screw 'em.
