Megan McCardle officially jumps the shark.

Hey, no problem at all with guns at political events! Nope, nothing could possibly go wrong, there.

What an assclown

This comment is terrific.

I grew up on a farm, our only vacation was deer and elk hunting season after the harvest. I served in the Marine Corps in Vietnam. I fully support the right to posess firearms.
BUT. Anyone not a police officer who shows up at a public meeting carrying a firearm, loaded or not, by definition qualifies as not normal.
AND. I have never and would never own an assault rifle, a hand gun or a short barreled open choke shotgun because the only thing they are designed for or any good for is killing people.
"The rate of crime associated with legal gun possession or carrying seems to be very low." I followed the link and it contains NO statistics related to the topic except that the incidence of gun violence per capita is low and that people in prison who had used guns mostly got them illegally.
Obviously you have no experience with guns. Do me a favor, go to a local gun club, rent a Glock and spend a half hour shooting holes in human form targets and then sit down and analyze the emotional responces you experience.

TS ADDS: How would McSuderman feel if every one of her wedding guests carried a gun? Inquiring minds want to know!
