Where’s bloodbath?

Terry Quinn

It’s been a year now since Colorado passed a law expanding the right to get a concealed weapons permit. At that time, liberals were predicting a bloodbath, with our streets turned into shooting galleries. Remember all the wailing and lamentation?

As far as I can tell, that calamity never happened. Will those who made such dire predictions acknowledge their mistake? I doubt it.

We see those pictures of Iraqi prisoners being abused by Americans. The whole story is not yet clear. But it does illustrate how unlimited power in the hands of government can turn out. Governments are run by people, and no human is immune from unwholesome impulses. That’s why limited government is a good idea.
