Irony of the Day

Once again, it looks as if I won’t have much time for blogging today, but I do want to take a minute to point something out. Wednesday, in my “Doctors for Defenselessness” post, I quoted “PalMD” mentioning a link to what is, according to “Pal,” evidence that guns pose a “public health problem” that cannot be debated.

I got so caught up in the breathtaking arrogance of someone who would presume to dictate what can, and what cannot, be debated, that I didn’t really get around to talking about the the New England Journal of Medicine article that was linked to. As mentioned above, I don’t have time for a detailed look today, either, but I am pronouncing the following statement, by Garen Wintemute, the Irony of the Day.

As noted by Wintemute, a court decision that broadened gun rights “could weaken the framework of ordered liberty.”

I wonder if he also said “War is Peace; Freedom is Slavery; Ignorance is Strength.”
