A lot of noise, no action in hearing on gun control
The Kansas City Star
The gun control hearing might as well have been a TV drama with a lot of noise and no action.
People on both sides of the gun issue spoke at the Senate Judiciary Committee hearing. Some of the more notable figures included former Democratic Rep. Gabrielle Giffords of Arizona and Wayne LaPierre with the National Rifle Association.
But each checked the other on whether gun control measures being considered will make the public safer and end random gun violence and mass killings like the Dec. 14 Sandy Hook Elementary School shootings, which left 20 children and six educators dead in Newtown, Conn.
The debate is likely to go on for years with neither side yielding. But it is good reality TV — for now.
