A little Latin lesson

By Debra Dobbins

Kathleen Parker weighs on the controversy surrounding the issue of gun control In her column today on page 4A .

In her sixth paragraph Parker uses the Latin phrase, ipso facto. Translation: “by that very fact.”

A not dissimilar Latin phrase is ipso jure, which means “by the law itself.”
