Long piece, much handwringing about guns in America:
What is it with America and guns? Why does the most advanced democracy, which prides itself on being a bastion of reason and civilisation in a brutal and ugly world, put up with this carnage in its own back yard?
Etc, etc, cont. pg 94.
Amazingly, Ed Pilkington (for it is he) manages not to mention the most basic point:
A well regulated militia being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the People to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed.
Now maybe you think this is a good idea and maybe you don\’t but it is there, the Second Amendment to the Constitution and thus part of the founding ethos of the State.
Simply not to mention it at all in hundreds and hundreds of words about America and guns is simply bizarre.
