Guns in the USA

We don’t yet know exactly by whom and for what deranged “reason” or mutant “cause” five police officers were murdered last night [July 7], but, as the President rightly suggested, we do know how—and the how is a huge part of what happened. By having a widely armed citizenry, we create a situation in which gun violence becomes a common occurrence, not the rarity it ought to be and is everywhere else in the civilized world. – Adam Gopnik in The New Yorker
