Guns -- Sightings (Martin Marty)
Is it too late for Americans to come to an agreement on rational gun laws? Are we so enthralled with the necessity of guns that we can agree to no real limits? As I ask the question, this week, in New Mexico there was again a shooting at a school. I don't know the details, except two middle schoolers are fighting for their lives? Is the only answer turning our schools into fortresses? The gun obsession has all the markers of a religion, and it is a powerful one -- as Martin Marty demonstrates in this week's column. I invite you to take a look and consider it carefully.
