A Newhouse News Service story cites the lack of agitation for gun control in the wake of the recent high school massacre in Red Lake, Minnesota, as evidence of the anti-gun movement's weakness. Another explanation is that it's hard to think of a feasible gun restriction that could even arguably have prevented the shooting rampage by 16-year-old Jeff Weise, who stole the weapons he used from his grandfather, a longtime police officer. The obvious answer, I guess, is to disarm the police, but I haven't heard anyone suggest that. Then again, plausibility (or even basic logic) has never been a requirement for gun control proposals.
