TROUBLING TIMES….Normally levelheaded Eugene Volokh,

TROUBLING TIMES….Normally levelheaded Eugene Volokh, at the end of possibly the worst argument ever against “smart guns,” says this:

….judging by recent human history, there’s reason to think that there’s a significant (10%? 20%? who knows?) probability that at least some time in our lives, our homeland will be attacked, possibly with sophisticated anti-electronic weapons, and civil order will break down.

Huh? In the last century our homeland has been attacked only twice, both of them isolated incidents, and while I agree that future terrorist attacks are fairly likely, it seems extremely unlikely that “civil order will break down.”

Has the Montana Militia hacked into the Volokh Conspiracy and started writing under Eugene’s name?
