Fallows on the Denver shootings. I am mindful of the need to not politicize something like this, but have to say that after each one of these, I feel this deep sense of sadness that our country seems to do this more than others. It isn't that we have more insane people, and it isn't even that we may not be good at dealing with the insane people we do have. But we do seem to insist on believing that the answer to gun violence is to have more guns.
Seems like we should be able to talk about reasonable gun control without the NRA accusing us of caving to the UN.
