Interesting article and interesting guy.

http://news.yahoo.com/alan-korwin-accidental-gun-advocate-080000483.html

Two interesting passages:

Instead of gun control, it’s crime control; assault weapons are household firearms; and they’re not gun rights, they’re civil and human rights.
Korwin owns firearms and sometimes carries one, but he won’t say whether he’s had the occasion to draw one. Still, he considers himself a utopian pacifist. But, unfortunately, there are what he calls the four horsemen of humanity: anger, hunger, stupidity, and wickedness. As long as humanity is plagued by such character defects, peace must be achieved through superior firepower, and freedom defended by force. When Korwin says he’s “not so much into guns as the concept of guns,” he means guns as a means to defend personal freedom. That, he says, is what’s at the core of the entire gun debate: To fight the threat of government oppression or other evil forces, the citizenry must be armed.

Met him and talked theory and philosophy concerning guns many times. His books are mandatory reading, but when you talk to him he expands on his written thoughts. Very intelligent man who is careful to avoid confusing his self defense beliefs with politics.
