The left has little faith that Trump will take on the NRA. Make that no faith.


The right refuses to offend the NRA with tough gun control measures, but, on the other hand, CNN may not have helped the situation all that much. A roundup of editorials Monday takes a look at the issue.

Opinions from the left:

Trump Is the NRA's Apprentice
 

From CNN: Will Trump challenge the NRA on gun issues? Don’t hold your breath.

CNN Townhall Was Network at Its Best - and Worst
 

From Vox: Is CNN the “fundamentally rational” center of politics anymore?

The Parkland Students Aren't Going Away
 

From The Atlantic: Here’s hoping that the students at Parkland’s elevation of the issues surrounding gun control will stick.
 CNN’s town hall on guns was less than helpful, the right says.

Opinion: Singapore summit was a historic snooker

The headline writers adore the word “historic.” It was ubiquitous in reporting on the April meeting between Kim Jong Un and Moon Jae-in.

READERS WRITE: JUNE 17

Liberals only see one type of lack of diversity Uh oh! Call the PC police on the South Fulton police! The AJC story (” ‘Black Girl Magic’ rules in South Fulton courts,” June 13, Metro) extols the positive impact of having zero racial and gender diversity in the leadership of South Fulton’s police department and court system...
Opinion: High school learns censorship doesn’t work

Here’s an axiomatic truth: If you want to make sure people see or hear something, ban people from seeing or hearing something. That predates the internet, as any former teenager who ever hid under the covers listening to “Louie Louie” with the volume down can surely attest. We are talking about a long time ago in a galaxy far, far...
Opinion: ERA began as a farce but has ended in tragedy

Karl Marx was no more mistaken than usual when he said that historic people and events appear twice, first as tragedy, then as farce. Today’s advocates of a musty fragment of the 1970s, the Equal Rights Amendment, are demonstrating that something that begins as farce can reappear as tragedy, because abuse of the Constitution is tragic.
