Round Up: A Look at Guns

Comments Off

There are some lively exchanges here at the Legal Examiner as different writers have looked at  issues of gun violence and what can be done about it. I am interested in the issue having learned to shoot as a small child under the watchful eyes of my father. He was an avid hunter and strong supporter of the NRA. He taught my brother and I many lessons about how to properly handle firearms. At the same time, how can anyone not be moved by the tragedies that have happened in our schools nationally?

Here are some pieces I have recently found of interest::

I also found interesting two pieces from Simple Justice:

Capped Guns, Cap Guns, Guns

But For Video: Gun, Gun, Gun

Finally, an open letter that FairWarning recently published:

An Open Letter to Gun Owners:

I like these articles because they are well written and they explore the issues we do need to talk about. This is a discussion that the country needs to have and no extreme group on either side needs to control it. Here are a couple of times I have looked at the 2nd Amendment:
