Gun Law - Wishful Thinking Dept.

Mayor Daley is anticipating a big loss in the McDonald lawsuit, and is frantically thinking of ways to preserve his gun ban. One suggestion is to require gun owners to carry an insurance policy. I'm sure the required amount will be sky-high, and the conditions will be such as to force the insurance companies to charge exhorbitant rates.

I think I could almost go for the insurance requirement if it came with a literacy and civics knowledge requirement for voting.

That and a photo I.D.

If you're going to turn the Bill of Rights into a Bill of Privileges, why settle for half measures?
