I don't think that I saw Prof. Volokh or even pseudo-Prof. Reynolds make any attempt at answering Tim Noah's penetrating question in Slate: if popular access to guns is such a great bulwark against tyranny, as gun supporters often tell us, then how did Iraq (with ready popular access to guns) get such a tyrannical government? Noah has a follow-up column on the question today.
My old friend Donald Watkins -- already in the Alabama news yesterday for having been hired to defend Richard Scrushy in the Healthsouth mess -- makes the news again this morning because Jackie Robinson's daughter has joined as a partner in his effort to buy a major league baseball team.
