David Kopel, another sub-par co-blogger at the Volokh Conspiracy, has done a case study on microdisarmament – the sensible act of banning firearms. Unsurprisingly, he concluded, unclouded by personal opinion, of course, that microdisarmament is ineffective. His cases? Bougainville, Guatemala, Albania, Cambodia, Mali, and Panama. I’m sorry, but none of these countries can be characterized as been developed and/or stable nations/regions. They are all impoverished and war-torn. How this has any bearing on firearms policy in the United States – an internally stable, rich country – is beyond me.
