National Review: God Decrees Man Should Be Armed to the Teeth

The arguments of pro-gun fanatics are getting more and more absurd.

In the National Review, David French isn't satisfied with just citing the Constitution or the founding fathers any more; he's making the ultimate appeal to authority: The Biblical and Natural Right of Self-Defense.

His argument is that God decreed "man" should be armed to the teeth with high-powered semi-automatic weapons, because Bible. Hey, are you gonna argue with God? Get thee to a gun store, sinner!

I'm always amazed at how many wingnut writers pretend to have a direct line to the Almighty. It's one of the biggest snow jobs conservative pundits pull on their followers.
