Who are these masked marauders?

Can State Sen. Bob Jauch and Rep. Janet Bewley guarantee that no eco-terrorist will try to harm the employees or property of the Gogebic Taconite iron-mining site in northern Wisconsin’s Penokee Range? If not, then deterrence will do more to protect life and property than the pious palaver of the two Democrats. (“Jauch and Bewley deride G-Tac security measures.”)
The northern Wisconsin legislators, opponents of iron mining in Iron County, excuse the actions of the eco-terrorists as “unrepresentative” of the majority of mining opponents. I think we can say the Tsarnaev brothers are unrepresentative of Islam, yet their homemade bomb killed and maimed nonetheless.
Watch the screaming, obscenity-spewing eco-terrorists — all masked — harass and assault workers and tell me that they are peaceful. These are people for whom nature is supreme and human life but an unfortunate accident — but one that can be (ahem) remedied. But they will get a bye from all the usual sources, including our mainstream news media, who are still searching for some evidence of tea party militancy.
Looking for ‘sickness’ in all the wrong places
Like the reliably liberal Greg Humphrey. Greg, under the nom de plume “Deke Rivers,” is blogging once again at Caffeinated Politics, after a hiatus to write a book. His is the only liberal blog I can recommend. But, on guns, he just don’t get it. “Shooters making their own bullets” is subtitled “the sickness deepens.”
“THE SICKNESS DEEPENS?”
WTF!? Reloading is an old and respected hobby, enjoyed by thousands of responsible citizens. Please tell me, Greg, that you haven’t joined the Paranoid Left.
Is any state more dysfunctional than Illinois? The state with a billion-dollar public pension shortfall becomes the 50th state to legalize the concealed carry of firearms. But only under the duress of a federal court order. At the last minute. Something about violating the Second Amendment to the U.S. Constitution.
The essential James Taranto at The Wall Street Journal online transcribes the querulous Chicago Tribune to say: “While gun owners may have questions about how soon they’ll be able to carry guns in public, other state residents may also have questions about where they can expect to find people armed with deadly weapons.”
