Veronica Rutledge

By now, most Americans have heard of the tragic story of Veronica Rutledge, the young mother whose 2 year-old son somehow managed to take her handgun from a purse designed for concealed carry and shoot her in the head while they were shopping in a WalMart. As one might expect, the usual suspects immediately began dancing on her grave, demanding gun control, and not a few advocates of the Second Amendment were less than kind in extracting lessons–as usual as they may be–from her death.

At The Truth About Guns, my article on that incident, and its implications for self-government, is now up. If you have a few minutes, it may be worth your time.
