Summary: In all the news coverage of the Las Vegas shooting, where is the footage from the hotel’s own security cameras to confirm the single-shooter theory? Bret Stephens asserts that the National Rifle Association has donated a “paltry” $3,533,294 to all current members of Congress since 1998, citing a chart published in The Washington Post. Opinion: However, it may be possible to replace the Second Amendment in a way that clarifies both the right of Americans to own guns and the powers of the government to regulate that right.
Summary: The White House claims that Chicago has a high crime rate despite its stricter gun laws. After the horrific shooting in Las Vegas last week, the White House is wondering if President Trump would back up the idea to make a more stern gun law. Lots of people would agree that Chicago is a great example that gun laws don't work. There have been 4,000 shooting victims in Chicago in 2016. They have also suffered a lot of gun crime recently. But while gun violence in Chicago is high, the rest of this common talking point doesn't really check. Opinion: I agree with the idea to make more harsh gun laws. I think this is the reason there are so many shootings. It seems to me that in this article the White House is hoping and trying to contract individual freedoms of bearing arms.
Summary: After the shooting in Las Vegas, Republican leaders in Washington tried to suppress the public’s demands for action with the same approach they’ve opened after mass shootings in the past. On Thursday, the National Rifle Association broke its usual post-massacre silence by saying bump stocks “should be subject to additional regulations.” In the same statement, though, it called on Congress to require states to recognize concealed-carry permits issued by other states, spreading a Wild West mentality from coast to coast. Could it be that Republican leaders felt that enough time had gone by since the previous deadliest mass shooting in modern American? Opinion: I think that there should be better and more real cun laws, or in my opinion, this will keep happening if the White House doesn't put down their foot. But at the same time, a shooter isn't going to just back down that easy.
