Newtown’s Call to Reason

The heroic and inspiring role played by the families of the Sandy Hook massacre’s victims should not be used to create what would be a dangerously misleading narrative about how they changed the politics of guns.

The End of Majority Rule?

The National Rifle Association is facing attacks from Gun Owners of America for being too soft on gun control. This is like a double cheeseburger coming under severe criticism for lacking enough cholesterol.

Time for the Majority to Vote on Gun Control

The longer this drags out, the less likely anything will get done. That is why President Barack Obama’s announcement of a commission, just four days after the Sandy Hook Elementary School massacre in Newtown, was a harbinger of failure and inaction.

Will the GOP Block Background Checks?

Is Congress on the verge of turning away from the lessons of the slaughter in Newtown even as Connecticut enacts sweeping laws to curb gun violence? Is the gun lobby hell-bent on aligning our country with such great friends of liberty as Iran, North Korea and Syria by opposing efforts to condition international gun sales on the human rights records of buyers?

Why Politicians Listen to Public Opinion on Gay Marriage and Guns but Not the Economy

Recent polls show Americans would rather reduce the deficit by raising taxes than by cutting Medicare, Medicaid, Social Security, education and transportation. Yet Congress seems incapable of making that kind of deal. Some 65 percent of Americans want to raise taxes on large corporations, but both parties are heading in precisely the opposite direction.

Maximum Mayhem on His Mind

It’s hard for me to accept that the right to “keep and bear arms” extends to the kind of arsenal that Adam Lanza—and his mother, Nancy, whom he also killed—assembled and kept in their home.

NRA Inundates Newtown Residents With Anti-Gun Control Robocalls (Audio)

Some residents are understandably upset at the National Rifle Association for bombarding them with pro-gun robocalls and postcards that ask the community to oppose gun-control measures that the Connecticut state legislature is considering in the wake of the deadly mass shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School.
