Almost immediately following last night’s massacre in Aurora, Colorado, in which 12 people were gunned down and many more were left injured (the largest mass shooting in U.S. history, by the way), Piers Morgan of CNN renewed the debate on gun control.
Law professor David Kopel, among others, suggested that now is not the right time for a debate on gun control; they say that more attention should be given to the victims and their families. Piers Morgan, however, maintained his stance that gun control should have been debated much earlier, especially in light of the fact that the gunman, James Holmes, purchased all of his guns legally.
We’ve all heard the saying, “Guns don’t kill people, people kill people.” But should the issue of gun control be looked at again?
Is now the right time for a gun control debate?
Should gun control be more strictly regulated, or does gun control infringe on our Constitutional Rights?
