Nearly 200 Children Killed by Gunshot Since the Sandy Hook Massacre

Mother Jones’ analysis of deaths related to guns reported in the media shows that at least 194 children under the age of 12 have been killed in accidents or homicides since the Newtown shooting a year ago. Other research estimates the true toll is closer to 500. How can the NRA keep saying we need more guns?

Violence Is Deeply Rooted in American Culture

The gun violence figures flooding the media in the wake of the Newtown massacre are startling, “but they do not tell us enough about the cult and spectacle of violence in American society. Nor do they make visible the myriad of forces that has produced a country drenched in bloodshed and violence,” Henry Giroux told C.J. Polychroniou in a Truthout interview.

Anderson Cooper Rips Newtown Shooting Conspiracy Theorists

In case you missed it, a smattering of conspiracy theories about last month’s shooting in Newtown, Conn., has been making the rounds on the Internet. One claims the massacre never happened, while another states it was a plot by the government and the media in order to take people’s guns away.

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.

Dutch Catholics Seek to Ditch a Homophobic Church

Many Dutch citizens are attempting to “de-baptize” themselves to protest Pope Benedict’s anti-gay marriage declarations; a national database of gun owners may have helped prevent the Newtown shooting; and although the media insist the president is giving in to the Republicans’ demands to make cuts to Social Security, Obama’s been trying to reduce it all along. These discoveries and more after the jump.
