Adam Winkler Addresses Gun Violence in L.A. Times and N.Y. Review of Books

Professor Adam Winkler has written an op-ed for the Los Angeles Times, arguing that public discourse on gun violence and gun control in the U.S. needs to shift away from discussions about mass shootings. “We don’t talk about guns and gun violence the right way,” writes Winkler. “Instead of focusing on mass killings, we need to address everyday gun violence. That is where laws can work.”

Winkler also delivered an essay for the New York Review of Books, in which he wrote that the National Rifle Association has gained influence by “selling an extreme, no-compromise interpretation of the Second Amendment that views any gun regulation as an infringement on individual liberty and a step down the slippery slope to civilian disarmament.”
