'Not an excuse for stupidity': Charles C.W. Cooke shreds Tom Nichols' nonsensical straw man arguments against conservative 'gun worship'

The White Settlement community is still mourning the deaths of the victims of this past weekend’s shooting (and celebrating the heroes who acted quickly to subdue the shooter). But as we told you yesterday, America’s Expert™ Tom Nichols has been much more focused on the scourge of law-abiding people who choose to exercise their Second Amendment right to self-defense, including in church and other houses of worship.
