Two Georgias, two tales of self-defense

In today's Wall Street Journal, U.S. Sens. Lindsay Graham (R - S.C.) and Joe Lieberman (I - Conn.) call upon their fellow countrymen to stand with them in helping to arm Georgians against violence. Specifically, they say, "...Georgian[s]...should be given the ... [weapons] systems necessary to deter any renewed ... aggression. These defensive capabilities will help to prevent this conflict from erupting again..."

Sadly, the two McCain frontmen were talking about arming Georgians in the former Soviet Union, not Georgia, U.S.A. As it now stands Georgians on the other side of the world have more freedom to bear arms than those next door to Mr. Graham.
