On the Melissa Harris-Perry Show yesterday, the panel discussed how we went from being a society in which assault weapons were banned into one where we can’t even have a discussion about where to draw the line in what sort of weaponry can be owned by the public. I very much agree with Dorian Warren of Columbia University.
WARREN: When you have military-level fire power in civilian hands, this is what happens. This is the inevitable outcome and it will happen again and again and again unless we want to make a distinction and say we have a value around certain kinds of guns in society that nobody needs.
