November 24, 2015—Professor Eugene Volokh was cited in a Yahoo! News UK article reviewing America’s gun control laws from a Briton’s perspective.
Professor Volokh pointed out that mass shooters (who usually plan their attacks well in advance) are the least likely to have their access to guns restricted by tighter gun laws. Mass shootings of civilians are the most appalling aspect of easy access to guns in the U.S., and they seem to be becoming increasingly common. But they should not be the focus of the gun debate: they account for less than 1% of homicides in the US.
