The Washington Post yesterday posted an appeal for readers to send in their personal stories about “gun violence” in what appears to be a build-up to this Saturday’s one-year anniversary of the Newtown tragedy, while a survey released by Reason today says only 16 percent of Americans think tougher gun laws would have prevented that crime.
The Post is getting bashed by Breitbart for making the appeal, which follows the apparent principle established by gun control proponents to use emotion.
Meanwhile, today’s New York Times is running a piece that argues, for what must be the umpteenth time, that “The most effective way to reduce gun violence without significantly curtailing Second Amendment rights is to treat the problem as a public health issue, like smoking or drunken driving, rather trying to profile potential shooters.” This is according to a report from a “panel of experts…commissioned by the American Psychological Association.”
