Why Congress won’t act on gun violence without NRA permission

The News & Observer, 10.6.17

We act as if the unending massacres that are occurring at concerts, high schools, baseball practices, college campuses, churches, military installations, movie theaters, elementary schools and so forth are acts of God – like hurricanes or tornadoes.

We pray for the victims and their families, we fly flags at half-mast and we shake our heads in sorrow, as we should.

But thinking of them as beyond our control ignores the connection between the carnage and the world’s most lax gun laws.
