Brooks and Capehart on the tragedy in the Uvalde and Georgia primary elections

David Brooks:

Yes, I mean, their argument is that, A, it’s a guaranteed right in the Constitution, B, they have an ethos that we take care of ourselves, and we’re going to provide our security.

C, they have an ethos that the government is prepared to threaten. Gun rights are a way of deterring threats from the government. And, finally, it has become the point of a culture war, where the gun has now become a mythical symbol of rural life. And many who support gun rights say it’s a group of coastal elites telling us how to live our lives.

I guess there might be some hope. I’m a little more hopeful for two reasons. One, whenever one of these events happens, his mind changes. And if you look at history, even through all these shootouts, you see a spike in support for gun rules, which declines over time, but doesn’t come all the way back.

And so, slowly, you see. And then I think it’s likely to change the way we talk about this in order to get winable people. And that doesn’t mean it’s called gun control, we’re going to take your guns away. That’s the phrase gun regulation. Like, we have driving regulation. We have cars. And we regulate cars.

And there are all kinds of things that you can do that are kind of like what we do with cars. As such, we can increase the anger threshold at which you buy a gun. It’s 18. This child was 18 years old. You can increase it to 21. It will make a difference. background checks. Red flag law. If you see someone in your class who is suicidal or something, you can go to law enforcement and make it impossible for them to get guns.

There is a whole range of things. Somebody talked – I think, my colleague was Nick Christophe – that if you – if I lose my phone, and you pick it up, it’s basically useless to you, because you don’t have my code . Why can’t guns be like this?

And so there’s a whole range of things that can be done that are normal, because we do them to cars.
