Gun Control, Revisited

After my previous post, I found another two articles related to the gun control issue, and I encourage you to take a look.

One is by a person in Nebraska working to reduce gun casualties. An excellent goal, anyone would agree, right? Not the gun nuts of Nebraska, apparently, who like to always play the victim. The essential quote from the article, in my opinion: “[T]he agreed upon facts — that openly armed men followed unarmed volunteers to a place that tries to prohibit open carry — make the idea that the gun extremists were somehow the victims prima facie absurd.”

The other is from the New York Times, about assault weapons. The quote I’m pulling from this one: “It turns out that big, scary military rifles don’t kill the vast majority of the 11,000 Americans murdered with guns each year. Little handguns do.”
