With a hashtag of #2A (2nd Amendment), Arkansas GOP state rep Nate Bell triumphantly tweeted early yesterday during the frenetic search for Dzhokhar Tsarnaev:

I wonder how many Boston liberals spent the night cowering in their homes, wishing they had an AR-15 with a high-capacity magazine?

And why not issue such insensitive, ill-timed garbage? Mr. Bell was in the afterglow of an orgasmic "gun high." He had recently proudly presented a bill permitting concealed carry in places of worship and had seen the bill passed.

Throw out the irrelevant political labels. You can throw out "cowering," too. People of all stripes were obeying a historic decree issued in the interest of public safety. They were betting on those trained guys in their streets who were carrying high-powered stuff not purchased without a background check over the internet or out of the trunk of a car: 2 things that are apparently okay with many of Mr. Bell's cowardly ilk.

Their bet was right.
