Campus Question – January 15, 2013

Tonight’s question, greetings, and banter here. (More)

As President Obama prepares to present his plan to reduce gun carnage later this week, the NRA released an ‘educational’ first-person shooter game that lets children shoot at coffin-shaped targets. Meanwhile, Reason‘s Nick Gillespie says gun safety regulation “won’t make us safer,” Ann Coulter told Fox Newsit’s not a gun problem, it is a demographic problem” of too many Not White people, and Gene Rosen, who sheltered six children during the Sandy Hook shooting, is harassed by conspiracy crackpots. Will enacting gun safety laws calm, or inflame, the craziness?

  • I think it’ll briefly inflame the craziness, and then it’ll settle down. But it’s really nice of the NRA to remind everyone that they’re not quite sane (understatement) and Ann Coulter to let everyone know the core reason is racism.

    I agree with Norbrook: passing meaningful gun safety regulation will inflame the crazies for a few months, and then it will pass. Nick Gillespie’s article is a masterpiece of misdirection: point to a specific case, argue the regulations being proposed can’t guarantee that massacre would not have happened, and thus declare any new gun safety regulations a waste of time.

    As for Coulter … yeah … whatever….

    Short of putting a prescription drug into the capitol water supply, nothing is calming down the rabid right and they seem more frantic and frenetic. Maybe it’s just the storm before the calm? They are tiresome and I really don’t approve of the coverage they get for their wackiness. Mute and the click to another site are saving my sanity.
