Nick Kristof offers eight ideas to alleviate mass shootings. All of them would make it harder for law-abiding citizens to own guns. None would stop mass shootings.
Terrorism is a different thing than a random shooting and requires a different response. Confusing the two would make our response less effective.
Abdulazeez shot his victims in a “gun-free zone,” which is a useful illustration of the absurdity gun-control laws: we constrain conscientious Americans but offer free rein to killers.

No, a legal “loophole” was not the reason the Charleston shooter was able to purchase a gun. Run-of-the-mill government incompetence was.
Western societies are producing more and more Lost Boys, the fail-to-launch young men who carry dangerous social grudges.
When someone says the United States ought to adopt Australia’s gun laws, he is really saying that gun control is worth risking violent insurrection.
If liberals want to blame millennials for racism that could descend into Dylann Roof’s behavior, they should hold up a mirror.
Creating a hierarchy of oppression to answer for the events in Charleston sets back the healing our country needs. And none of us can afford setbacks now.
