All quiet on the gun control front ahead of midterms

by Conor Higgins - Communities Digital News  |  published on October 30, 2014

Today, if you type the words “gun control” into Google, you will yield scant results. The main story is a CNN article from three days ago about Chrissy Teigan, followed by gun control pieces by the Chicago Sun-Times, and the New York Times but that is hardly news. Today, gun control is eerily quiet in the media.

This comes as somewhat of a surprise. In the last six weeks there has been plenty to write about for those groups and individuals whose job it is to put pen to paper over the gun control debate. In Pennsylvania a man shot and killed a police officer, and there were no shouts for gun control. In Washington State, a high school Homecoming prince shot and killed two fellow students. In California, two deputies were shot, one killed, by a man during a suspicious vehicle stop outside of a hotel.

These are high profile cases, the type of high profile cases which usually calls down the thunder of Liberal, ant-gun pundits in the media who call for change. These are usually the cases where you would hear the media thundering from above for reform. These are cases where you would hear politicians getting up on their soap boxes and demanding action.

But all we are hearing is crickets.
