    Chan Lowe: Wayne LaPierre and the NRA leadership

    A strange thing happened at Taft Union High School in Fresno, Calif. this month. A student brought a gun to school and shot a classmate, but no one died. A teacher and school supervisor talked the gunman into surrendering. Both were unarmed. The story...
  • Here's The Answer — Don't Give Men Guns

    When we look at the acts of almost unspeakable gun violence making news and breaking hearts, it doesn't take Rachel Maddow or Wayne LaPierre to target the fact that men are responsible. We don't need to hit the archives for historical documentation....
  • Chan Lowe: Gun rights

    Chan Lowe: Gun rights
    I’ve been trying to figure out exactly why NRA Executive Vice President Wayne LaPierre’s argument seems so sensible on the surface, yet, upon further examination, sounds so absurd.   He contends that the best way to protect school...

    Can we finally close the gun show loophole?
