What The Ancient Greeks Could Teach About Gun Control
"One of the guns used to murder children and adults in Newtown, Connecticut, was an AR-15, a semiautomatic rifle that's similar to a weapon used in war by American troops.

The pioneers of citizen armies were also pioneers of withdrawing weapons from the places of civilized life."
