Robert Reich on Gun Control
Former Secretary of Labor; Democratic Challenger MA Governor
The goal of [recent litigation] efforts is to threaten the industries with the risk of such large penalties that they’ll agree to a deal--for the gunmakers, to limit bulk purchases and put more safety devices on guns to prevent accidental shootings.
But the way to fix everything isn’t to turn our backs on the democratic process and pursue litigation as the administration is doing. It’s to campaign for people who promise to take action against cigarettes and guns, and against the re-election of House and Senate members who won’t. In short, the answer is to make democracy work better, not give upon it.
