Big Guns

After four police officers have been killed in Florida in the last two weeks, there’s a movement afoot in Tallahassee by the National Rifle Association to make guns more available to everybody.

On a related note, the New York Times reports that the NRA is doing all it can to stymie scientific research into firearms.

When it comes to lobbying and controlling the people who make the laws, the NRA makes Big Tobacco and the oil companies look like wusses.
