Thought provoking article by Adam Gopnik. A few choice excerpts:
There are complex, hand-wringing-worthy problems in our social life: deficits and debts and climate change. Gun violence, and the work of eliminating gun massacres in schools and movie houses and the like, is not one of them.
Gopnik argues that every other civilized country on the planet has figured out that limiting access to guns, or banning them outright, has a dramatic effect on reducing gun violence. In fact, even the most minimal gun control has a dramatic impact.
If research and other factual evidence aren't enough for you, consider comedian Jim Jefferies' hilarious (and spot-on) set on gun control.
