Twenty-six new victims, another town mourns, an entire nation grieves. Again, an old wound is opened and there’s an outcry from one coast to another for stronger gun control laws. Even in the face of such unspeakable horror in Newtown, Connecticut, Americans love their guns. It’s estimated that at this moment there are 200 million guns in circulation across the nation. The vast majority of them are held by law-abiding citizens.
