Quote of the Day - Victor Davis Hanson Edition

From his recent piece Year Zero at NRO, but do read the whole thing:Gun sales are at record levels.

It was not just to protect the law-abiding from the criminal, but to protect the criminal from the outraged vigilante. Only police can stop blood feuds such as the ones we see in Chicago or like the medieval ones of Iceland’s Njáls saga, or the postb...
