Another good one
John Derbyshire on Gun Control on National Review Online
There is an old joke about Heaven being a place with British government, American houses, French high culture, Japanese hygiene, Chinese cooks, and Italian opera, while Hell has Italian government, Japanese houses, American high culture, French hygiene, British cooks, and Chinese opera. Well, as a keen propagandist for the delights of British food I am not altogether on board with that. (Though I am at one with the travel writer Jan Morris, who claims that all her trips to China are organized around the principal goal of avoiding Chinese opera.) There is, however, one thing I should not be at all surprised to find if, after shuffling off this mortal coil, I wake up in the Lower Place: British gun laws.
