With the news of the most recent mass school shooting (if you missed it, don’t worry there will be another one soon) There have been many posts about Hitchens’ views on gun control.

With so many gun deaths relative to other countries, the status quo is clearly not working.
What does everyone think?
A great perspective is offered by Adam Gopnik in the New Yorker. Please read The Simple Truth About Gun Control.
