  • 'Good guy with a gun' not a solution to mass shootings

    Chan Lowe: The Senate background check vote
    It was Sen. Pat Toomey of Pennsylvania who indicated that there was another, less savory Senate motive for defeating universal background checks for gun purchases last week.   All this time, many of us had assumed that the dogged preservation of the...

    6/25/2013-Strong Law Made Weak

    Your recent article about the difficulty college students have at campus mental health centers should be mailed to Wayne LaPierre, head of the National Rifle Association ("Students struggle for mental health services," March 8). Mr. LaPierre contends...
  • Hold Gun Makers Liable For Their Products

    Under the law of products liability, every industry that sells consumer products is fully responsible to make those products free from design or manufacturing defects, and we are all safer because of that. Every industry except one. Ironically that...

     Navy Yard shooting refutes 'good guy with gun' claim
