If no serious crisis is to be wasted as a chance to sneak laws onto the books that fail the rational reflection test, all “gun control” proposals hastily put forward after the Connecticut elementary school slaughter by a mentally disturbed young man should be seen for what they actually are. They are gradual steps toward the confiscation of firearms from private hands, the “Holy Grail” of “gun control” activism.
A collection of writings by Charles Krauthammer, the conservative commentator and Pulitzer Prize-winning columnist, will come out this fall.

America is intrigued with the latest clash of political titans, suggesting that the vice presidential debate could draw as much interest as the presidential version. And why not? This is debate as reality TV, pitting a pair of unlikely combatants against each other, with excruciating stakes and a big audience.
The tragic events that took place in Libya and Egypt this week were the inevitable consequences of weak U.S. leadership. America and the world cannot afford four more such years.
The legion of those who would do nothing in the face of Iran's drive to achieve nuclear weapons capability has another member: Anthony H. Cordesman, a military analyst at the Center for Strategic and International Studies. In an Aug. 31 column, Charles Krauthammer lays out Mr. Cordesman's three-step plan.
"What a weird word to use," Mr. Krauthammer said. "The word is religious parties. The word is Islamist parties. Yet even in this trivial throwaway line in a speech in Jerusalem he refuses to use the obvious word."
