Our Constitution's key assurance, the inalienable right of "life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness" and the right to carry a firearm cannot successfully co-exist. How would Thomas Jefferson have known about an AK47 with a 100-round magazine?

Gun Control is a Religious Issue

Rev. James Martin, S.J. | Posted 09.21.2012 | Religion
Rev. James Martin, S.J.

These shootings would not have happened if the shooter did not have such easy access to firearms and ammunition. Religious people need to meditate on the connection between the more traditional "life issues" and the overdue need for stricter gun control.

Sunday Roundup

This week, 70 people were shot -- 12 fatally -- when a gunman armed with an AR-15 assault rifle, a shotgun, and a Glock handgun opened fire in a crowded movie theater in Aurora, Colorado. As gun control advocates, including Mayor Michael Bloomberg, called for a discussion on a national problem that is literally killing us, some claimed it's too early. Actually, it's already too late for the Colorado victims -- whose names, in what has become a too-often-repeated ritual, get second (or third... or twelfth) billing to the murderer's. But it's not too late for the thousands of people who are alive today but won't be next year because of gun violence. With America's gun murder rate 20 times higher than the next 22 richest nations combined, it's a discussion that should be front and center, including in the coming presidential debates. But it won't be... unless we demand it.
