On the other hand, a lot of so called "common sense" is "nonsense" -- e. g., the "common sense" gun control of the Brady Bunch.

Common sense is a poor substitute for knowledge. Common sense might tell you to put on the breaks when your car starts to skid, but knowledge will tell you not to.
"It is long been a principle of ours that one is no more armed because he has possession of a firearm than he is a musician because he owns a piano. There is no point in having a gun if you are not capable of using it skillfully." -- Jeff Cooper
