Give me a blog!

John Stossel (famous for his "Give Me a Break" segments) has a blog at ABC.  His most recent post to date:
Jacob Sullum has a nice column in this month's Reason magazine debunking the idea that guns purchased in the US fuel the drug violence in Mexico.
"Making it harder for Americans to buy guns is not likely to stop Mexican gangsters from arming themselves. The persistence of the drug traffickers' main business, which consists of transporting and selling products that are entirely illegal on both sides of the border, should give pause to those who think they can block the flow of guns to the cartels."
He also argues, as I have, that conservatives who oppose gun control should also oppose the drug war. A war on drugs inevitably becomes a war on guns.
