A confluence of forces is driving gun ownership despite — or perhaps because of — the media's anti-gun propaganda.

Jerry Falwell, Jr., president of Liberty University in Lynchburg, Virginia, has called for students to arm themselves to prevent terrorist attacks on campus. On the other side of the coin, University of Oklahoma president David Boren is strongly opposed to allowings students and faculty to carry concealed on his Norman campus, insisting that such permission "makes no sense" and would put students and faculty "at risk."

After militant Islamists killed 14 people in San Bernardino, some sheriffs and police chiefs are defying the party line and calling on citizens to arm themselves. Law enforcement's typical message is, "Call the police. Let the professionals handle things." But now a brave few have raised a call to arms, telling citizens that since police can't be everywhere at once, it is up to individuals to protect themselves and their communities until police can arrive.

The Times and other anti-gun organs of the major media may fume that too many Americans have guns, but fewer and fewer Americans are swayed by their propaganda.
