Truths and Lies About Guns

Tim Egan in his latest online NYT column calls out Adam Lanza's mom, Sen. Ted Cruz and others, but especially Wayne Lapierre of the NRA.
Wayne LaPierre is a clown. That’s what the governor of Connecticut, Dan Malloy, said a week ago about the leader of the gun lobby. “This guy is so out of whack, it’s unbelievable,” said Governor Malloy.
LaPierre’s job is to frighten people; more than a clown, he is the Kim Jong-un of American politics, saying things that are so outrageous that, by contrast, garden variety extremists don’t look so bad. Recently, of course, he suggested militarizing all elementary schools to prevent further shootings.
