As longtime readers know, while I'm not opposed to gun ownership as a general principle, I do believe that right isn't a blank check. Based on polling, this seems to be a mainstream point-of-view, which makes it even more of a shame that the NRA has such outsized influence over our politicos. Year after year, their particular brand of gun nuttery has twisted and contorted this very real, very important debate, and deposited far, far away from where it needs to be. But the tides of policy and politics may be changing, if this lengthy piece by Alec MacGillis for The New Republic is to be believed. Read it, and you tell me.
