Naomi Wolf: Second Amendment Enthusiast?



Naomi Wolf's eulogy for American democracy in today's Washington Post contains the following, very curious passage:

"Few young Americans understand that the Second Amendment keeps their homes safe from the kind of government intrusion that other citizens suffer around the world; few realize that "due process" means that they can't be locked up in a dungeon by the state and left to languish indefinitely."

Has the third wave feminist and former Gore campaign consultant suddenly discovered the importance of the right to keep and bear arms? I suspect subversive editing from a lowly WAPO copywriter excited about the Supreme Court's decision to hear District of Columbia vs. Heller.
