New York Times: This campaign needs more gun control

by American Firearms Review  |  published on June 27, 2012

From the increasingly Gray Lady:

It took an ordinary citizen, Nina Gonzalez, to stand up at the presidential debate on Tuesday to raise what has been a phantom issue on the campaign trail: the lack of effective gun controls and any meaningful political discussion about this crisis. Every year, more than 30,000 people are shot and killed in this country.

And from there it’s off to the races, with the Times praising Ms. Gonzalez and demanding more calls for gun control by the candidates.

It’s as though Americans everywhere are clamoring for more gun laws but the candidates won’t listen. But there’s a simple reason political office-seekers don’t talk about gun control: it’s wildly unpopular and has been for years. Polls consistently show that a majority of Americans oppose new gun laws. The Times can complain all it wants, but the argument’s been won.
