Long but well worth reading.  Thanks, salvo.

I also read the first link. Not too many journalists would agree with him let alone put it in writing.
Good article.

Snell is now with the Iowa Firearms Coalition, so his opinion piece helped get him a good job.  I read a bunch of other stuff he wrote.  Good writing on everything I read.  Thoughtful stuff on Bill of Rights, mostly.

Bumping this topic up after rereading Snell's column.  Good reading needs more attention, IMHO.
