  • What the Clean Air Act can teach us about reducing gun violence

    The Boston Globe - 10/06/2015

    In his passionate response to the Oregon shooting last week, President Obama called on the American people to support stricter gun laws, contrasting the way we treat guns and the way we treat cars — both of which kill about 32,000 Americans every year. “When roads are unsafe, we fix them to reduce auto fatalities. We have seat belt laws because we know it saves lives,’’ he said. “So the notion that gun violence is somehow different . . . doesn’t make sense.”

    After Volkswagen’s recent admission that it used illegal devices to cheat on emission testing of nearly 500,000 diesel vehicles in the United States, the company faces fines as high as $18 billion, along with the prospect of expensive recalls, class action lawsuits and criminal charges.
