Mass shootings and gun sales
According to the Denver Post (ht NPR),
“Between Friday and Sunday, the Colorado Bureau of Investigation approved background checks for 2,887 people who wanted to purchase a firearm — a 43 percent increase over the previous Friday through Sunday and a 39 percent jump over those same days on the first weekend of July.”
Which of course answers Jon Stewart’s alarm over the conservative push-back against gun control. It is definitely NOT time to talk about gun control, say the pundits, well at least until they get back from the gun store.
