American Elites’ Obsession with Gun Control

 

“Dan Baum on the reaction to the Batman massacre:

Among the many ways America differs from other countries when it comes to guns is that when a mass shooting happens in the United States, it’s a gun story. How an obviously sick man could buy a gun; how terrible it is that guns are abundant; how we must ban particular types of guns that are especially dangerous. The Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Violence responded to the news with a gun-control petition. Andrew Rosenthal of the New York Times has weighed in with an online columnsaying that “Politicians are far too cowardly to address gun violence…which keeps us from taking practical measures to avoid senseless shootings.”
