Dumb and Dumber

From my old stomping grounds in southern California comes this imbecilic headline: More than 10 tons of firearms melted down in Rancho Cucamonga mill. The Los Angeles Sheriff's Department—in its unassailable hoplophobic logic—made a big show of taking some 8,000 firearms to a Rancho Cucamonga smelting plant and melting them down to turn them into rebar. In a brash PR statement, they even named the event as “Project Isaiah,” a reference to the Bible and the story of melting weapons into plowshares. Wait! Doesn’t that violate the separation of church and state? Oops! My bad! That only applies to other displays of Biblical ideology that are inconvenient to secularists.
