December 30, 2012. The headline on Drudge, beneath a picture of redcoats blazing away in a Lexington and Concord re-enactment, reads: "OBAMA TO GO FOR GUNS IN 2013 / 'THERE WILL BE RESISTANCE'."

But another assault is under way on another part of the Constitution -- an assault that has claimed far more innocent lives over the years than did the massacres that spurred current gun-control agitation. That other assault has long been gaining strength, and it has been bolstered by conservatives' mystifying lack of resistance.
Consider this report from The Washington Times: "Accelerating a trend, lawmakers in Colorado, Maryland and New Hampshire are expected to make a push for pulling the plug on capital punishment in the next legislative session." That would follow Connecticut, which abolished the death penalty in 2012; ditto Illinois in 2011, New Mexico in 2009, New Jersey in 2007, and New York, whose legislature acquiesced in its abolition by state judiciary and executive actions from 2004 to 2008. All led by Democrats.
Even where the death penalty is retained, its use is declining due to its prohibitive cost. States find it cheaper to feed, clothe, house, and guard a murderer to the end of his days, and nurse him through the diseases of old age, than to jump through the endless legal hoops of proving to the most soft-headed appellate court in the land not only that he committed the crime, but that he deserves to die for it...
