Naomi Wolf posted an "explanation" of her earlier endorsement of the Second Amendment--get this:

I was referring to the historical origin of the Second Amendment, as the protector of local militias that would be more closely accountable to the people than a federal army. Many in the founding period were distrustful of a large standing army: they - and their wives and children - had experienced abuse at the hands of unaccountable soldiers in their midst.

Riiight. Because don't we all associate the kind of "government intrusion that other citizens suffer around the world" with British redcoats quartered in private homes during the pre-Revolutionary days?
