In Iran, death by bullet and truck

The Iranian regime is getting brutal again. They're opening fire on, and driving trucks into and over, peaceful demonstrators. The linked page containes video in which people are grievously injured or murdered by agents of their state. As I mentioned some time back, when men with guns fight those without, the men with guns will win. The only hope the demonstrators have is that they can steal or liberate firearms, or that a sufficient number of people with access to them, decide to switch sides. Otherwise, this will just be general repression at best, massacre at worst.

(Just saw Avatar. But the whole planet is unlikely to take the side of the demonstrators.)

And folks in this country are agitating for more gun control. Because it'll "stop crime". Mmmhmmm. Suuuuure.
