Historical Note: Patrick Henry bought guns via newspaper wanted ads
One of the less noticable campaigns by the anti-gun bigots has been
pressuring newspapers to refuse advertisements for firearms, under the
theory that firearms advertised in that manner might be sold to
criminals. (Nevermind that there is no evidence this actually
happens regularly). Some people find it a little bit difficult to
defend the practice because it doesn't involve asking the government
Well, David Hardy over at Arms and the Law provides a solid historical argument for allowing newspapers to carry for sale and wanted ads for firearms. That's a damn good blog over there.
