    That wasn't my read from it, I thoufgght it was pretty even handed. Sure, it quotes the usual anti's mantra, but seemed to cover both sides. Maybe I am getting soft in my old age.
    I'd rather be lucky than good any day

    There's nothing that will change someone's moral outlook quicker than cash in large sums.

    Majority rule only works if you're also considering individual rights. Because you can't have five wolves and one sheep voting on what to have for supper.

    It ends on the mantra that "if the gun laws would have been tougher, like xyz states", but really it documents the real reason why he was able to get a gun... The kid had serious trouble, been arrested multiple times, and yet still passed the background check because of the "diversion" programs that kept him from being punished and record updated. Because people wanted to "help" him instead of punishing him for the things he'd done wrong so that later in life it'd be obvious he was not to be trusted enough to pass a background check.

    looks like people 'not wanting him to have a record' made him not have a record . . . so there was nothing in his background to raise a question about his competence.

    IMO this will not change much.
