Ban guns because 2/3 of all gun deaths are suicides. Leaving aside what this statistic does to all their and other gun control nut’s horror at the death rate caused by firearms – are there no subways? No bridges? No pills? – no attempt is made to explain how banning “assault rifles” and high capacity magazines will address this perceived problem.
Glenn Reynolds suggests that ”at the NYT, anything is a good reason for gun control,” but that’s the cynic’s view; I prefer to think they’re just morons.
