  • 'The Second Amendment' is a smart history of guns and the U.S.

    'The Second Amendment' is a smart history of guns and the U.S.
    The 2nd Amendment is just 27 words long: "A well regulated militia, being necessary to the security of a free state, the right of the people to keep and bear arms, shall not be infringed." But in that single, awkwardly constructed sentence, Michael...
  • NRA backtracks from rare instance of making sense [Commentary]

    NRA backtracks from rare instance of making sense [Commentary]
    A few days ago, the NRA inadvertently said something reasonable. This, in response to a series of protests in Texas. It seems advocates of the right to carry firearms openly have taken to showing up en masse at public places -- coffee shops, museums,...
  • Trading the lives of children to cling to our guns

    I realized a morbid irony to look forward to during the summer break from school: There won't be any more school shootings for the next two months. No action has sprung from the more than 70 school shootings that have occurred since the Newtown in...
  • Review: 'The Second Amendment' by Michael Waldman

    Review: 'The Second Amendment' by Michael Waldman
    In the 1980s, New York senator Daniel Patrick Moynihan famously said that everyone is entitled to his own opinions but not to his own facts. More recently, philosopher-comic Stephen Colbert rejected such a confining, narrow view: "Who's Britannica to tell...
  • Tragedy in Las Vegas

    Tragedy in Las Vegas
    To the editor: Tuesday's front-page piece ("A violent culmination," June 10) on the Bonnie-and-Clyde-style Las Vegas libertarian killers Jerad Miller and Amanda Woodruff is accurate are far as it goes. But it leaves perhaps the most interesting question...
  • Enough slaughter [Commentary]

    Enough slaughter [Commentary]
    I am running out of words. Some crackpot who couldn't get a date stabs and shoots his way across the Southern California college town of Isla Vista, killing six people and wounding 13 before apparently turning his gun on himself. This happened Friday...
  • More guns don't make for a safer society

    More guns don't make for a safer society
    A good guy with a gun tried to stop a bad guy with a gun. You know, like the NRA preaches. It was a bad move. The good guy got mowed down by the bad guy's batty wife. She had been a good woman — one of those "innocent, law abiding" citizens...
  • Frosh for attorney general [Editorial]

    Frosh for attorney general [Editorial]
    It is a rare pleasure in any election year (and perhaps this one more than most) to have a candidate for state-wide office we can endorse so enthusiastically as we do Brian Frosh in the Democratic primary for attorney general. In his career in the General...
  • Letter: These are not the days of the Founding Fathers

    Re: “A nation held hostage by gun nuts,” Ray Richmond’s Read On column, June 7. I congratulate Mr. Richmond's column on gun violence. It is a tragedy that in a democratic country, which prides itself on free speech, any of us fear...
  • Obama calls failure on gun regulation his 'biggest frustration'

    Obama calls failure on gun regulation his 'biggest frustration'
    The failure to win tougher background checks for gun purchases or other new firearms regulations are the "biggest frustration" of his term in office, President Obama said, as he decried school shootings that are "becoming the norm" in ways that "as a...
  • Letter: Mental health crisis is the real issue

    Ray Richmond’s ranting column should have been headlined “A nation held hostage by mental-health professionals.” I hope Mr. Richmond watched 60 Minutes Sunday night. He would have learned that almost all of the mass shooters were...
