4 Gun Buyback Myths

Will Rogers would probably be bemused at the phenomenon of the “gun buyback.” In this latest manifestation of the ancient human capacity for self-delusion made immortal by the Dutch mass tulip-bulb hysteria, men of presumed good will pile up unwanted guns into a knob, hill, mountain or whatever terrain feature they can manage, and consign them to the fires of Perdition. Come to think of it, a better metaphor may be the Salem Village witch trials of 1692, except, in this case, burning the broomsticks rather than the witches. (Of course, no witches were burnt at Salem — that was a European sport — but the meme has taken hold. Curse you, Monty Python!). Other comparisons that seem apt from time to time are Orwell’s Two Minutes Hate and the Moslem Hadj custom of “stoning the devil.” While the people of Airstrip One were unflagging in their condemnation of Emmanuel Goldstein, at least he was human, however innocent he may have been of all the mischief for which he was so calumniated. While Moslems may throw symbolic rocks at a symbolic Satan, they don’t go around taking out thieir fear and hostility on his pitchfork — nor on pieces of machined metal.
