Goldberg & Kopel on Guns and Gun Control

The December 2012 issue of The Atlantic features a lengthy article by Jeffrey Goldberg, “The Case for More Guns (And More Gun Control).” Though written before the Newton massacre, the article is quite timely and relevant — and provides much food for thought.

The VC’s own David Kopel was among those Goldberg interviewed for the piece. Dave also had an op-ed in the WSJ this past week, on “Guns, Mental Illness and Newtown.” It’s also worth a read.

A third article worth considering is James Alan Fox’s “Top Ten Myths about Mass Shootings.” Fox is a criminologist and his article is seems quite pragmatic and sober (albeit sobering as well).
