I have nothing informed to offer on the [Afghanistan] situation save this: the moment we’re all witnessing, where the US military is scrambling to evacuate as 20 years of counterinsurgency crumble behind it in a matter of hours, will be a touchstone in our gun debate for decades to come.

Any time anyone, anywhere suggests that Americans surrender their AR-15s because the US military is so all-powerful that it cannot be opposed by irregulars with small arms, Kabul will be invoked to counter that suggestion. And as well it should.
