This year seems to mark an unprecedented period of violence and fear, with more mass shootings than days—and more guns than people. As more major mass shootings occur across the country, gun sales have increased in tow. Gun purchases rose 40 percent in December 2012, after the Sandy Hook Elementary School attack that killed 26 people in Newtown, Connecticut. Americans have rushed to purchase more guns for their own self-defense, in light of recent tragedies in Paris and San Bernardino, California.

Speaking on “Meet the Press,” Lynch said:

Lynch said that Obama will ask “Congress to review measures and take action.” Her office later confirmed that he will specifically call on Congress to review various gun control measures.

Here's the situation with guns as it now stands—and I'm not telling you anything you don't already know:

1. Even in states with more stringent regulations, it is easy to get your hands on a gun. Private sales are unregulated, gun shows are unregulated and it's as simple to get a firearm on the Internet as it is a pair of L.L.Bean socks or a bottle of miracle weight loss pills. Of course, even in states with the most stringent regulations, there is nothing to stop anyone with a relatively clean background and a permit from walking into a Cabelas and buying whatever the hell he wants.

The shotguns fell silent at Lake Merced in April when the city ended the lease of the Pacific Rod and Gun Club, for 80 years a place to shoot skeet in San Francisco.

Now, with a $22 million lakeside cleanup almost finished, city recreation officials have to decide whether the former shooting range will be replaced by boat rentals, a fishing pier, a kid-friendly play area or even another shooting range, a dream that dies hard among the gun club’s members.
 

 QUOTES TO REMEMBER
The NRA has a point about the inadvisability of simply taking guns away from the populace. If that were possible, it would not disarm that small percentage of the population willing to break the law.... Punishing people who obey the law is backward thinking. — Hugh Downs, Veteran ABC newsman
