Blaming freedom

Just a few months into the Obama administration, Sheldon Richmond wrote this:

A rule we can rely on to be unfailingly applied is this: No matter how much the government controls the economic system, any problem will be blamed on whatever small zone of freedom that remains.

I think of this when the chief of police of Chicago — the city with the most repressive anti-gun rules in the country — blames the gun lobby for his city’s horrifying murder rate.
