Every once in a while Peggy Noonan gets it

Ol’ Peg was the token conservative* on This Week, uh… this week. I can’t completely hate Noonan, though she’s rather hit-and-miss, lately more “miss”, and her misses have been rather large — notably, Obama the Magnificent.  However, she did capture some key truths in her closing remarks on the program.  (* — I’ll be kind and omit the quotation marks.)

An executive order meaningfully changing gun regulations would be a Very Bad Thing™.

Peggy Noonan:

Yes, two things I’d like to say, one is that people are buying guns like crazy now. Not because they’re nutty, not enough because they’re angry, but because I really think they fear their country is falling apart.

It’s defensive and it’s something that I think we all have to be talking about. There’s so much anxiety out in America. And they also fear their government.

Second thing, I guess connected to that, leave gun control and gun reform issues in the Congress of the United States, the president should not be issuing executive orders in this area. It would really be unwise and it will cause great problems, I would think.

I couldn’t find video of this, which is unfortunate because she really emphasized the last sentence with a hint that it would be a Very Bad Thing™, and we’d really rather not say what that Very Bad Thing™ might be.

I’m still keeping myself out of the business of defining the Bad, but I will say that I made note of Mark Levin’s reference on Friday to James Buchanan.

(As a side note about Sunday Shows, I find the quisling Republicans usually do better when there’s a real conservative there to remind them what side they’re supposed to be on.  I wonder if this is the reason why there’s frequently only one token.)
