Gun Control Solutions Are Simple (If You’re Simplistic About It)

by evanmcmurry

Fareed Zakaria rolls his eyes at Obama’s proposal to send gun control measures to Congress. “The problem is not complex,” Zakaria writes, “and the solution is blindingly obvious.”

Roughly 500 words or pretty standard (though not wrong) arguments about how other countries have less gun violence than we do, Zakaria’s blindingly obvious solution is…”limit access to guns.” That’s it. That’s all. That’s his solution. “We do not lack for answers,” Zakaria concludes. “What we lack in America today is courage.” Actually, it sounds like what we lack is specifics from our pundits.
