Gun Control, and the Debate

by Mike Kimel

Whether you favor more gun control or less, via the less famous Roger Ailes, a story in Australian Sky
News
on one of the very few things that can change the entire dynamic of the debate:

Media mogul Rupert Murdoch has called on United States
lawmakers to ban automatic weapons following the Connecticut school
massacre, alluding to Australia’s response to the Port Arthur
massacre.

The News Corp chairman used the social media platform Twitter to
express frustration at the easy availability of automatic and
semi-automatic guns in his adopted country.

‘Terrible news today,’ he tweeted. ‘When will politicians find courage
to ban automatic weapons? As in Oz after similar
tragedy.’

Murdoch’s statement may be starting to have an effect.
