Are We Being Rational About Mass Shootings?

Peter Cooperson | Poland

Recently, two mass shootings occurred in the United States. However, despite the high level of emotions caused by footage from the scenes that saw the horrific murders happen, gun control policy should in no way be viewed as hot-headedly as it has been by the establishment.
