Eugene Volokh explains why they went to the Washington Post

This is real opinion outreach from the libertarian perspective into the mainstream:
What's more, on many issues many people in the middle haven't heard much of one side's arguments (or often of either side's arguments). The comment I quoted reflects that: Having a few contributors who are pro-gun-rights and skeptical of the effectiveness of gun control equals, in the commenter's mind, "going gun nut." That seems like a sign of a cocoon in which certain arguments are seen as just out of bounds for normal, reasonable people -- which in turn is a sign that those arguments are very rarely heard by people of his circle. We aim to change that!

If it puts the sensible, rational, and realistic version of libertarianism in front of the Post's reliably liberal readership, on a regular basis, then it could be a huge victory.
