Must read: How I Ended My Lifelong Love Affair With Guns

Again from The Atlantic, Chauncey Hollingsworth describes the evolution of his thinking about guns and how changes in social attitudes are increasing the risk of our endemic gun culture. I think this line of thinking is essential to the gun-violence debate, and not much considered in the media.

Wow !! That hits the mark. I can't help but think about my own son, and more to the point my grand kids. Sometimes I feel like I'm threading a needle. Years ago Vermont had the most nonrestrictive gun laws in the country, and the least amount of gun violence. And that was under Howard Dean. Wonder where their at now. The lesson seems to be that, like it or not, times change.
