Opinion: Gun Control Everyone Can Agree On
Written by Pat's Papers | Thursday, 26 July 2012 7:05 PM
The two extremes in the gun debate will never agree, But given the way politics works there may be some room in the middle for compromise. In a New York Times column, Nicholas Kristof suggests some changes that moderate supporters of gun rights may not object to: like a limit of one gun per month and a universal background check that requires two people to vouch for you. And a limit on high capacity magazines. He also points out the irony that we have rules about fire exit lighting and whether a 13 year old can see a violent movie, but little to stop a guy with assault weapons from visiting a movie theatre.
