Editor's Note

There is no shortage of good proposals to whittle away at the gun problem. The fact that the Ohio shooter killed nine people in 30 seconds puts the focus once again on AK-47s and large capacity magazines in guns made to kill people, not to hunt wildlife. But the primary focus should be on politics.. When enough people realize that Mr. Trump is ineffective, and when more congressional candidates take on the gun lobby and win, policy changes will fall into place. Mental health treatment, universal background checks and less incendiary rhetoric – all can happen in a minute when the politics is right. –Fletcher Farrar, editor and CEO
