If civil war breaks out, the unarmed left is screwed
Lifeguard.

Tensions are boiling over at the border and on social media sites. It may be premature to say that the handwriting on the wall points to all-out conflict, but that is precisely what one commenator is predicting in today’s op-ed pages.

If there is a civil war in the U.S., count yourself lucky to be on the side that supports the Second Amendment, especially if you yourself are a gun owner. Although the data in it are too ancient to be reliable, a Gallup poll from 2005 probably gives a sense of the split today when it comes to gun ownership and party affiliation. According to the poll, Republicans were nearly twice as likely to own a gun as Democrats, 41% to 23%.
