    Louis L’Amour just wouldn’t shut up about how people deserted the disarmed and life-threatening cities of the East to seek civility and order on the frontier. Every time I hear the Wild West meme invoked, I remember his estimation of what would happen if a gang rode into a western town shooting and whooping it up, when three-fourths of the population were Civil War veterans, and carrying.

    Then there’s Northfield, Minnesota, which is a lot like what happened in this case.
