Claire Wolfe at Paladin Planet - the spirit of the shot heard round the world is alive and well in its homeland, America.

That Marvelous Mistress of Snark, Tam, hearing a wimpy TV response to antigunner Ed Rendell’s snide query about why any law-abiding person could possibly need a “magazine with 33 bullets in it,” retorted:

“Why do we never close the deal on this one? Why do we never response, ‘Well, Ed, I need a magazine with 33 rounds in it because when smug, officious, overreaching petty tyrants and their tame enforcement thugs come trampling up my herbaceous borders, they rarely do it in onesies and twosies’? Or, better yet, give him the real reason: ‘Well, I need a magazine with 33 rounds in it because f&#$ you, Ed.’ Seriously, where does he get off thinking how many bullets’ are in my magazines is any business of his? Vobis non me dux, Ed — you ain't the boss of me. That's why I own guns in the first place: to make sure nobody, from the mugger on the corner to the King of England to some washed-up political has-been from the Keystone State can come force me to do things against my will without me at least having a chance to shoot back.”
