Ramping up gun control

Posted By on Tue, Apr 15, 2008 at 6:34 AM

The NY Times reports a surge of state legislation on gun use. The idea is, for example, to make it easier to trace guns used in crimes and harder for criminals and the mentally disturbed to get weapons. This is depicted as a sea change on an issue where the gun lobby has held sway for years. The Terminator supports the effort, by the way, saying it's something that should be bipartisan.

Two comments:

1) Surprise. Arkansas isn't on the map of states with measures pending.

2) Will Hillary decry or laud this development?

This also reminds me: Hillary will be on the Colbert Report on Thursday. Count me surprised if her muscular embrace of gun sports and the beer-and-shot knockdown don't figure in the outing.
