Two weeks ago, I was being strapped on a gurney and rushed by firefighters into an ambulance at my doctor’s office. I was so out of breath that I wasn’t all that worried.

Savannah, Ga., hosted a gun show over the weekend. By liberal logic, even a small gun show should produce mass casualties and mayhem galore. Yet the gun show came and went without incident.
