    Extremely biased article. You know nothing about guns or what gun control would do to this country. “republicans are all gun loving racist bigots”, such a typical liberal point of view.

      I would like to point out, first of all, that this article is in the “opinion” section of the newspaper; it is, therefore, specifically meant to be biased towards her point of view. That’s what an opinion piece does.
      Furthermore, she has effectively proven that guns are often used to propagate violence (which, clearly, is something that guns do). Your claim that she knows “nothing” about guns, therefore, is false, from a very objective point of view. You may believe that she missed an important point about guns, but, as you have failed to provide such a point yourself, one can only assume that your statement was made irrationally, with little substance to back it up.
      In the same line of thought, you have similarly failed to provide any form of indication as to “what gun control would do to this country,” while she clearly has made a reasonable point as to what she believes it will do, making her point (obviously) more valid than your nonexistent one.
      Finally, she did not mention racism or bigotry anywhere in the article, so it is strange that you would bring them up, but, regardless, even if she had done so, and, in doing so, had supported a “typical liberal point of view,” there would really be no problem with it (other than that of simply being liberal, which, presumably, qualifies as a problem in your opinion). Just because a point of view is “typical,” it does not make it bad; plenty of points of view are typical and good. For instance, I am fairly certain that every sane human being without severe character flaws and/or mental deficiencies does not support Kim Jong-un, and this is a good – and pretty much the only acceptable – point of view (for anyone excepting the North Korean citizens themselves, who have the excuses of government propaganda and torture to back them up).
      Incidentally, the comma goes inside the quotation marks. Here’s a great resource: http://www.studyzone.org/testprep/ela4/j/quotationmarksl.cfm
