It’s a shame that Fred Thompson is too young to have played Matt Dillon, the no-nonsense marshal of Dodge City in the long-running radio and television series “Gunsmoke.” That role on the radio went to William Conrad (later TV’s “Cannon”) and on television to James Arness. But whether TV or radio, Marshal Dillon had the same policy for cowboys when they rode into Dodge: They had to surrender their guns.

So much crap in so few words. Cohen should cut his screed into pieces and sell it to organic farmers.
The truth is the more guns there are in a situation, the higher the risk to the first shooter to use one, ergo, they will not be used at all.
The same sort of logic applied to atom bombs. When only the United States had atom bombs, they used all of them. When there were several players in the game, all with lots of bombs, no one used any of them.
Richard knows that I know that he knows better than to push the old "the fewer the better" when it comes to guns. It's no more true for firearms than for women (from the male perspective) ~ in fact, he probably could have beaten the sexual harrassment rap that advertising gal laid on him if there's been 10 times her number ~ they'd been competing for his attention in fact.
Believe it or not, I agree with Thompson that other planets are also warming up. Earthlings are not the cause of that. Hey MSM, it’s the sun’s fault, stupid!
Oh and Dick, anyone with a bit of reason and logic can see past the "global warming" hype. Why can't you?
Nothing like missing the point. Thompson’s point about the other planets warming up is it shows that the sun is doing the global warming by itself, without any effect from man. Therefore treaties in which certain countries slow down their economic growth serve no purpose toward preventing GW.
It’s a shame that the cadaverish Cohen is too old to play Pee Wee Herman in a sequel. He’s a True DemocRAT and a threat to us all.
They actually did remove that opening later in the series.
And in doing so, became the first liberal idiot who violated their constitutional rights, and dangerously close to being the first liberal declaring marshal law in an American state.
Liberals always argue in simplistic, over generalized one dimensional terms. They never consider complexities or long term outcomes. They are driven by emotion (dare I say, madness) and not the search for truth. Both the gun arguments and climate change are classics. As far as climate change goes, man may be making a small contribution but has no significance if the sun and geological manifestations (eg volcanic activity) represent the “rate limiting steps” using chemistry jargon. Quite frankly, the market will solve the climate change problem long before a committee of hysterical liberals can work out the seating arrangements.
Thompson's point goes right over the head of this simpleton.
I guess Cohen never took a breath and paused long enough to realize that there aren't any humans on those planets to make nasty co2, so it isn't why those planets, or earth, are warming up, and that there is nothing humans can do to stop nature from doing what it has always been doing for thousands (or millions if you are from that school) of years on those and this planet.
Richard Cohen is a dildo.
Cohen is a butt dildo. His uncle Leon Trotsky held similar views as Mr. Cohen. Wow, I’m shocked!!
Forgot that part, didn't you, ya slimy gun grabber? (The author, not the poster).
Actually Mr. Cohen makes a valid point.
Fred Thompson is a threat.
I have not seen the MSM ths afraid in some time.
Marshall Dillon NEVER made anyone surrender their guns when they road into town. I have seen every episode ever made and not once did he ever make cowboys give up their weapons. I would like Cohen to cite one episode that this happened and shame on you for falling for his lies. Besides, James Arness would never have played a character who was a liberal. Jim was and still is a staunch conservative (after all, one of his closest friends was John Wayne).
Thompson is right about guns.
