From September 27 through October 2, from Bailey, Colorado and Cazenovia, Wisconsin to an Amish schoolhouse in rural Nickel Mines, Pennsylvania, separate school shooting incidents left several students and one principal dead. The tragedies have barely raised a response from beltway politicians, while the outrage over former Congressman Mark Foley’s obscene text messaging to junior pages has grown to a roar. With the November elections looming ahead, why have Democrats not seized the moment to call for tighter gun control? Have we ceased to believe that gun control is not the answer to stopping violence, especially in our schools? Should we be looking to other countries, such as Australia and Canada, where there are both tight gun laws and low gun crime?
