OPINION | PHILIP MARTIN: My neighbor and his gun

He's sitting out on his front porch in the late afternoon with a can of beer. Bothering no one. We speak to him as we walk by; we always do. He has complimented our dogs before; we know each other by sight, but we've never had a conversation of consequence before.

Debating Gun Violence: 25 Years since Dunblane

Twenty-five years ago, the deadliest mass shooting in British history occurred at Dunblane Primary School in Stirling, Scotland. I first learned of the shooting while browsing lists of historical anniversaries, and became intrigued by the fact that the shooting actually resulted in public and legal action that has since curbed gun violence. Living in the United States, such actions are hotly debated – yet, in my opinion, desperately needed. I remember the Sandy Hook Elementary shooting, and the fear in my heart that such young souls could be terrorized – and killed – by a madman with a gun that the idealization of freedom and lack of mental health awareness had empowered. As Americans continue to debate whether our idealization of individual freedoms means sacrificing the public good (whether in gun safety, health, etc.), I decided to look into the Dunblane massacre to try to understand what could motivate a nation to place public good over private freedom.

NY AG: “In Some Parts of New York State, You Can Find a Gun More Easily Than You Can Find an Apple”

Back in 2015, then President Obama misleadingly sought to describe the “availability of guns” by proclaiming that “you can go on into some neighborhoods, and it’s easier for you to buy a firearm than it is for you to buy a book, there are neighborhoods where it’s easier for you to buy a handgun and clips than it is for you to buy a fresh vegetable.” He repeated a variant of the claim even after the Washington Post’s fact checker determined that the statement was a three-Pinocchio rated falsehood. Not only was the president “playing fast and loose with his language,” the fact checker ruled that the statement was “just a very strange comment that appears to have no statistical basis… As far as we know, there are no areas in the United States where background checks are needed to buy vegetables.”
