A Year After Sandy Hook, Are We Any Safer? In a Word, No

Since the massacre that was supposed to have changed the national debate over gun control, more state laws have been enacted that loosen gun restrictions than restrict them. So the lesson from Sandy Hook is that we need to change our name to the Insane States of America.

What Congress Should Do About Gun Control

Recent mass shootings have rightly sparked a national debate about gun control. Unfortunately, like so many political debates, this one has been loud, divisive and lacking in substantive analysis or reasoned compromise.

Kindness in the Face of Horror

We must act forcefully to contain gun violence, and that is a political matter. But a year that ended on notes of heroism in response to natural disaster and endurance in response to human horror brings to mind George H.W.

Pull the Global Trigger on Gun Control

While the final funerals for the victims of the Newtown, Conn., school massacre have been held, gun violence continues apace, most notably with the Christmas Eve murder of two volunteer firefighters in rural Webster, N.Y., at the hands of an ex-convict who was armed, as was the Newtown shooter Adam Lanza, with a Bushmaster .223 caliber AR-15 semiautomatic rifle.

Questions I Ask Myself About the Connecticut School Shooting

Why do U.S. cable news networks intensively cover these mass shootings, making it the only story for a day or two and prying into every detail of them, when they aren’t interested in preventing them from happening again through banning semiautomatic weapons?

Dear God! When Will It Stop?

Once again we are faced with unspeakable horror from gun violence and once again we are reminded that there is no safe harbor for our children. How young do the victims have to be and how many children need to die before we stop the proliferation of guns in our nation and the killing of innocents?
