The Times is using space on its front page to call for greater gun regulation in the wake of recent deadly mass shootings.
Arthur Sulzberger Jr. says the newspaper is running its first Page 1
editorial since 1920 on Saturday (local time) to “deliver a strong and
visible statement of frustration and anguish about our country’s
inability to come to terms with the scourge of guns.”
The Times’ editorial suggests drastically reducing the number of firearms and even “eliminating some large categories of weapons and ammunition.”
editorial comes after three people were fatally shot at a Planned
Parenthood clinic in Colorado Springs, Colorado, last week and 14 people
were killed in a shooting Wednesday at a social services center in San
Bernardino, California.
